This year I've devoted myself to testing a number of new things, including wireless stereo systems because I've been moving a lot and want less stuff in my life.
Stepping up from a system I discovered last year, this little unit by B&W has a better, bigger sound at half the price. Connected to your Mac or iPhone with Airplay technology and packing two 87.5mm (3.5in) full range drivers, I was extremely surprised and impressed with the sound. With a relatively small footprint, it blew away the other system I'd tried and was nearly as good as the more expensive A7 B&W unit that I was also testing.
With sound big enough to fill a living room, but small enough to fit on a book shelf, the Z2 is B&W's newest entree at their most affordable price point. It has a new generation dock which powers phones and iPods up top, a very easy set up app, and comes in white and black.
