Bowers & Wilkins MM-1 Speakers
The Bowers & Wilkins MM-1 Speakers bring true hi-fi quality sound to your desktop, giving your Mac the audio enhancement it deserves. The MM-1 speakers have two drivers, one dedicated to bass and mid-range frequencies and another for the treble, so they deliver accurate sound, just like full-sized speakers.
Full remote control for MM-1 and iTunes
The beautifully designed infrared remote controls the basic functions of the MM-1 and iTunes, so you can play and pause, and skip tracks forward or back from almost anywhere in the room.
Great highs and rich bass
The MM-1 tweeters incorporate a tube-loaded design which dampens resonance and produces purer, high-frequency sounds. By adjusting the sound balance depending on the signal, these speakers keep bass effects powerful and music sounding rich and detailed, no matter how loud you play it.
Enhanced sound from headphones and Mac
Thanks to its high-quality headphone output, when you plug your headphones directly into the speakers, the audio from your Mac is enhanced by high-quality DACs.
Plus, you can stream audio directly from your Mac via USB, with your MM-1 speakers acting as an external sound card to give you the best possible audio quality.

1. How big does this speaker's AC adapter? I couldn't find any photo on Internet. 2. How long the cable between L&R?

Normal size 2 prong plug. A wire leads from plug to a voltage converter box that is of typical size Normal size 2 prong plug. A wire leads from plug to a voltage converter box that is of typical size as one for a laptop computer- about 5 inches long. Another wire leads from theconverter box to the right loudspeaker. Length of wire between Left and right speaker I would guess is at least 4 feet. I only use about 2 feet to straddle my 15" Macbook Pro. Unused wire coils up below left speaker.

Will the MM-1 work with the USB on an airport express ? Is the DAC on a airport express as good as the MM-1 DAC ?
- Asked by Colin N A P from Newport on Tay

The Airport Express USB port is only for USB printing. All audio data is either decoded by the Airp The Airport Express USB port is only for USB printing. All audio data is either decoded by the Airport Express on-board Burr-Brown DAC or fed via digital optical mini-Toslink cable to another DAC-equiped device (i.e. audio/video receiver, Apple Hi-Fi). Therefore, you cannot connect the MM-1 to the Airport Express via USB. Since the MM-1 does not have an digital optical input, you would have to rely on the Airport Express Burr-Brown DAC to decode then pass the audio to the MM-1 via analog cable, which bypasses the MM-1's on-board DAC. The highest quality connection for these speakers is directly to computer via USB. I could not find what DAC chip the MM-1 (or Zeppelins) use, so I can't factually answer which device has the superior DAC. I do know that the Burr-Brown PCM2705 used in the Airport Express is NOT low quality. Measured tests have shown it to be a very capable DAC. Given my fondness for B&W speakers, I would expect that B&W also uses a good quality DAC chip.
