    I just bought a Zeppelin Air and love it - but I can't get Airplay set up. I've followed all the instructions exactly, but now I need to go into iTunes and enable "Look for remote speakers connected with Airplay" and I can't find it. I attached a picture where the tick box should be...

    I'm running iTunes 10.2.1 on Snow Leopard 10.6.6

    Could anyone suggest a reason why it isn't there? I'm pretty stumped. Thanks in advance!

    Sorted now

    Yup, it kinda sorted itself out. I think now by default that preferece is enabled in iTunes 10.2 which explains the lack of button. The AirPlay button just appears when the computer or iPhone detects the speakers (even while they're off, which is great!) and you can just play through them. I think it didn't work initially due to my relatively weak Internet in the area.

    Highly recommend the speakers, by the way, fantastic sound quality.
    Thanks

    Is it bluetooth Technology that connects the speaker to the computer?

    Connects via wifi

    Nope, it connects to your wifi - you set it up by connecting directly to it via your mac. That's all explained in the instructions

    Sounds nice. I am currently using the Bose SoundDock 10, But i hear the Zeppelin is better.
