More AirPlay from B&W with A5 and A7 models

B&W A5 and A7 Airplay speakers

Bowers&Wilkins Zeppelin Air is still amongst the most iconic AirPlay speakers in the market after two years, but B&W has finally expanded on their AirPlay range with two new models in the B&W A5 and B&W A7 models.

B&W A5 and A7 Airplay speakers

B&W is a well known manufacturer of iconic high-end audio solutions, and so far there is no reason to believe that the two new models won’t live up to that history. The design is similar to their popular MM-1 desktop speakers, and also recognizable for those familiar with the Zeppelin Mini. They are both finished in the same way as other B&W systems targeting Apple users, with the black cover that is so nicely paired with the metal line and top. It all looks very high-end, and of course, both of them come with AirPlay technology.

B&W A7 AirPlay

The top model B&W A7 comes with kevlar reinforced 150mm subwoofer with its own dedicated 50W class D amplifier, supported by 2 x 75mm midrange and 2 x 25mm tweeters, all with their own class D amp delivering 25W of power to the speakers. B&W have also included a digital-to-analogue converter for audio upsampling to 24-bit/96KHz. Hopefully the audio experience will be as impressive as the technical specifications.

B&W A5 AirPlay

Should your budget be slightly more limited, you can go for the more compact A5 model that comes with dual 10mm mid/low range drivers, and dual 25mm Nautilus tube aluminum tweeters, with total amplification at 20W.
