    This B&W speakers is amazing for Apple devices (including the Mac): http://www.bowers-wilkins.com/iPod_..._Computer_Speakers/Zeppelin_Air/overview.html

    It's $600 on the Apple Store and Best Buy (http://store.apple.com/us/product/H4029VC/A/Bowers-and-Wilkins-Zeppelin-Air?fnode=MTY1NDA5Mg).

    If we do a group buy, the product can cost around $150 - $250. That is, if 10-20 people are willing to buy this product, B&W can sell them in bulk to us at this price.

    Would anyone be interested to pitch in if the price was in the $150-$200 range?

    I'm definitely willing to pitch in if they are giving that much discount.

    If you can provide the official contact information of the BW employee that is getting you the special rate -- and you can get it to $200 of less, I am in.

    Sounds great if you can legitimately get it for under $200. But I have some serious doubts. :confused:

    Yeah, I'd be interested too at that price; but I want some more information.

    I'd go halves on one but I'd need use of in on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays and alternate Sundays.

    I'm in, but I seriously doubt we could get any more than 10% to 20% off retail.

    I would be willing to do this. However the cynic in me is telling me that it's too good to be true. You've only have 4 total posts, and 2 are regarding this. PM me with more details if it is in fact legit.

    You can AirPlay from your Mac/PC to these speakers, right?

    Thanks for the responses. Currently I'm working with a startup that manages group buys, and this price could indeed be possible with B/W, if enough people are interested. The more people, the better. More details will come.

    Count me in as well. But I can assure you that there is no "group buy" that will net you these for under $200. MAYBE 10-20% off at best.

    I'd be interested at $150 and I'm pretty sure I could get a couple of other people interested at that price; however, I have my doubts about this too. At that price I'd like to buy dozens and sell them at a hefty profit. Something doesn't add up.

    I am a little confused about this myself. All it takes is purchasing 10 units in order to buy them for less than 50% MSRP? I get that companies do deals on bulk buys, but I would hardly consider 10 units bulk, in the grand scheme of things.

    So, some dude at a startup has lead you to believe the impossible.

    10 units will not get you this price. Nor will 100 units. Sorry.

    The Apple store doesn't get them for 150-250. More likely 350-400. If B&W could sell them profitably at 150, why on earth would they let Apple earn 450 in pure profit on each unit?

    yeah I be in at $150 or so but a Newbie comes on here claiming they can save about 75% of retail price color me skeptical. we are going to need real contact info from B&H before I part with cash. Honestly if it's legit I would buy at least two keep one sell one on Ebay. should get me a free Zeppelin np. B&W fallows me back on twitter I bet they would question this as well.

    For sure I want a direct contact with somebody from B&W and know that the money is collected buy them as well as shipped by them. (not that I don't trust the TS)
