Simple multiroom music with Zeppelin Air

Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin Air - Lifestyle

Zeppelin Air is the ultimate wireless speaker dock. This is at least partly thanks to the inclusion of Apple’s new AirPlay technology, which allows you to stream your iTunes collection wirelessly to a Zeppelin Air.

AirPlay has other tricks up its sleeve as well including the ability to set up a simple, elegant multi-room audio system using more than one Zeppelin Air.

Adding further Zeppelin Airs to your system enables you to use AirPlay’s ‘party mode’ to stream the same music to every unit around the home.  The volume level can be controlled  independently at the individual unit or at the central hub – your computer. It’s easy to set up as well. All you need to do is set up each individual Zeppelin Air as per the supplied quick start instructions. Once registered on your network they will appear as options on your computer’s iTunes, or even on the Apple Remote app on your iPhone or iPad as shown here.

From this screen you can select the individual Zeppelin Airs that you want to send the stream to, and control their volume from here as well. Selecting a de-selecting a Zeppelin Air, is a simple, almost instantaneous task. The only possible drawback is the limitation of your network equipment to supply a vast number of Zeppelin Airs around your whole house.  Typically, 3 units shouldn’t cause most routers any problems, and more powerful routers will allow you to add more. Plus, it’s also possible to have a mixture of both wired and wireless Zeppelin Airs.
