Bowers & Wilkins Formation Bar Soundbar
The Bowers & Wilkins Formation Bar
Wireless soundbars are supposed to help give a full, immersive home cinema sound experience within a compact and complementary design. Often they fail to manage this with too few speakers, placed at the wrong angle, or the spec just won’t deliver the desired experience.
The Bowers & Wilkins Formation Bar has been created to be a powerful multiroom soundbar that delivers legendary sound quality with the added convenience of wireless streaming.
Bowers & Wilkins engineers designed nine optimised drive units, inspired and born from their legendary loudspeakers, positioned optimally within the sleek design, to create a wider all-inclusive soundstage. The dedicated center channel adds layers in a crisp, clear dialogue.
This combination makes the entire room “center stage” for a truly immersive audio experience that will make your home cinema experience a part of the Highest Form of Sound.
