The audiophiles at Bowers & Wilkins have announced two brand new speakers – the A5 and A7 – that are designed to work with Apple’s wireless AirPlay technology. This allows them to achieve a cleaner look due to the lack of a dock or protruding auxiliary cables. It also means you can carry your iPhone or iPad around with you and keep the music playing, provided you are within Wi-Fi range of course.
Bowers & Wilkins recently revealed its Zeppelin Air, which is also AirPlay compatible. The difference between the two models is the lack of a docking cradle for iPhone. The Zeppelin is available for purchase now, and the new A5 and A7 models will hit shelves in October.
The A7 is the highest model in this new line of AirPlay speakers. According to Bowers & Wilkins, is has “audiophile-grade electronics including Digital to Analog Converters capable of up-scaling audio to 24bit/96kHz.”
I can’t wait for the day when we can ditch speaker wires forever.
