"The baby of B&W's AirPlay range is a little belter, and it adds a proper Lightning dock to Apple's wireless tech. It'll easily fill a small to medium-sized room with chunky bass, punchy beats and lovely, clear vocals. You'll buy it for the look, but love it for the sound."

“The Z2 offers a warm and inviting listening experience, and while the sonics are balanced, the bass is very impressive for such a small speaker too.”

“The Z2 generates big, loud, impressive sound. I haven’t tested a better AirPlay speaker for this price.”

"It's a stunner. We've been waiting for a while for a do-it-all speaker with a Lightning connector and wireless capability. The Z2 packs all of this into a conveniently sized dock with surprisingly transparent and natural sound.It raises the bar for the kind of audio you can expect in a mid-price system, and is our new Editors' Choice for speaker docks. With the Z2, Bowers & Wilkins is bringing a real taste of high-end sound to a lower price point than before."
