Bowers & Wilkins A7

 

Not everyone has the budget for the iconic Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin Air , but what if you do, and simply lack the space for the horizontal behemoth in your living room? Fear not—B&W has just the thing. The new A7, at $799.95 (list) exceeds the...

Bowers & Wilkins A7 AirPlay Speakers: So Good And So Expensive

 

Bowers & Wilkins makes some of our favourite audio hardware. We also happen to love AirPlay — so the union of the two should be terrific, right? Sort of. The A7 speaker is tremendous — but it's just so, so expensive.
