Bowers & Wilkins (B & W) has announced a new addition to its wireless speaker range. The T7 is the company's first Bluetooth speaker, and the most portable standalone speaker B & W has ever produced. It features two speaker drivers and two bass radiators, and sees the first commercial outing for the company's Micro Matrix cabinet technology.
There are lots of options for enjoying outdoor audio whatever the weather, including TDK's Wireless Weatherproof Speaker
, the Eco Terra Boombox
and Braven's Bluetooth speakers
. If you're looking for a permanent speaker installation, though, high-end audio specialist Bowers & Wilkins (B&W) says its new AM-1 Architectural Monitors are a little different from standard wall-mounted, weatherproof loudspeakers.
It's been just over three years ago since Bowers & Wilkins exploded onto the iPod dock scene with the gorgeous Zeppelin
, and now the company is set to stir things up again with the Zeppelin Air. Designed by the same team responsible for the earlier model, the new hopeful retains the eye-pleasing lines of its popular predecessor but its internals have undergone a major overhaul. The new device now benefits from updated and improved speaker drivers, audiophile pleasing digital-to-analog signal conversion and wireless streaming capability courtesy of Apple Air.
Bowers and Wilkins has taken its five decade's experience with loudspeakers and created a true hi-fi computer speaker, which it unveiled this week at CES. The MM-1 is a serious speaker made small, with two separate drive units including an aluminum dome tweeter, and Digital Signal Processing that uses USB streaming to bypass the computer's own soundcard.
The company that set a new benchmark for iPod docks with the Zeppelin
has made its first foray into the soundbar market with an offering dubbed Panorama. Designed to inject a dose of high-end audio into your flatscreen TV viewing experience, Panorama incorporates Digital Signal Processing (DSP) and six separate, individually amplified speaker channels - two front, two rear, one center and one subwoofer - positioned to reflect sound off walls and create a surround effect that can be tailored to a particular environment from a single enclosure.
November 28, 2007 Sound and speaker specialist Bowers & Wilkins
has developed a new Spiral Diffuser tube that will help vehicle manufacturers increase sound system performance within the limited package restrictions offered by the in-car speaker format. The diffuser is designed to remove unwanted sound resonance in vehicle interiors by replicating a technique used in home sound system set ups.
September 19, 2007 From the speaker
company whose high-end reference units grace the studios at George Lucas’s Skywalker Ranch and Abbey Road comes a portable iPod
speaker dock to drool over. The $599 Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin packs a 5” subwoofer, plus twin 3.5” midranges and two 1” tweeters straight from the company’s famous M-1 studio monitors. Sweet!
