CES 2011: wrapping up the Bowers & Wilkins stand

B&W-stand-1

So CES 2011 draws to a close, the stands are dismantled, the rubbish is swept away and the weary feet of many thousands of electronics industry professionals are given a well-deserved soaked. So how did the show go for Bowers & Wilkins?

Unsurprisingly the main focus was on the newly launched Zeppelin Air, which attracted the most attention from visiting specialist and mainstream press. The Daily Star described the wireless music streamer as a “soaraway audio hit”, Stuff described it as potentially “the best iPod dock yet” and gave it a “Hot Stuff at CES” award.

Fellow gadget glossy T3 called it an improved version of what is “arguably the best dock around”. GQ online, meanwhile, say that the improvements made over the original Zeppelin – new drive units, improved bass, aesthetic tweaks and AirPlay functionality – mean that the speak dock “looks and sounds better than ever”.

Of course, there was more to see than just the Zeppelin Air. Many visitors took the opportunity to dodge the chaos of the show for a few minutes by donning a pair of P5 headphones at one of our listening posts.

An even better way to shut out the CES hubbub was to climb into the stunning Jaguar XJ on the stand, shut the door and hear the car’s B&W audio system in action.

And that’s it for Bowers & Wilkins at CES, at least until next year.
