Question about B&W Bowers and Wilkins Zeppelin iPod Music Speaker System

1 Answer

I bought my Zeppelin in 2008 in the U.K. although I am now living in Thailand. Recently I started to have problems with it. I was getting a red flashing light with no control over the unit. After a software update this problem seems to have cleared up although now when I have an ipod in the docking station there is a buzzing sound coming from the unit all the time. When I use my ipod through the auxillary port the sound is normal.

this is a problem with the model, if i were in your position, I would e mail b and w customer services, explain the issue, that you bought in good faith, and what they will do for you as this is a known problem and b and w fix free of charge in the uk.

if you don't have any joy, if you bought it by credit card, depending on your terms and conditions, becuase this is a known problem with the power supply, you could have get a refund via the card, (that is what you can do in the uk, don't know about internationally!)
