Wireless soundbars are supposed to help give a full, immersive home theatre sound experience in a compact design, but often they fall short, with too few speakers that aren’t placed at an optimum angle due to the limited shape and size. With Formation Bar, Bowers & Wilkins has created a powerful multiroom soundbar that delivers legendary sound quality with wireless streaming fl exibility. Bowers & Wilkins engineers designed nine optimised drive units born from their legendary loudspeakers and have them optimally positioned in a sleek design to create a wider, all-inclusive, soundstage, while a dedicated centre channel layers in crisp, clear dialogue. The combination makes an entire room “centrestage,” for a truly immersive audio experience that will make your home theatre experience a part of the Highest Form of Sound™.
