Libratone today announced that AirPlay 2 is available for its ZIPP and ZIPP MINI speakers through a firmware update that can be downloaded from the Libratone app.

Libratone first announced support for AirPlay 2 back in May when Apple released AirPlay 2 support in the iOS 11.4 update, but it took several months for AirPlay 2 to be implemented.


The ZIPP and the ZIPP MINI join several other speakers that have been updated with AirPlay 2 support, including several Sonos models. Sonos was one of the first companies to implement AirPlay 2 functionality.

With AirPlay 2 support, Libratone speakers will be able to be used alongside other AirPlay 2 speakers for a multi-room home audio experience.

Libratone's ZIPP speaker can be purchased from Amazon for $300, while the ZIPP MINI can be purchased from Amazon for $250.

Would it work with Sonos via AirPlay ? I need a speaker in the bathroom and as plugs aren’t allowed in bathrooms in the UK I thought that would a good solution !

If your Sonos speakers support AirPlay 2, then yes they will be able to play together using multi-room audio.

For anyone interested in a great-quality wireless speaker - without the privacy issues of having Amazon or Google listening into your conversations.....

This is your AirPlay 2 supporting product

I am literally off to buy my second unit :)
