Preview: The B&W Zeppelin Air has a new baby brother.

Keep trying to make it work... It's worthwhile!!!


I've read lots of reviews on Z2 on its connection problems. Whether it's spotty AirPlay or lightning port connections, there are no shortages of it. I have connection issues firsthand. However, the sound was really good at times when connection was...
