The stylish new Formation range of wireless speakers from Bowers & Wilkins redefines high-resolution wireless sound
The new Bowers & Wilkins Formation suite of multi-room audio products uses exclusive technology to deliver superb high-resolution audio throughout the home. With its trademark distinctive styling, B&W is delivering multi-room audio without compromise.
The first five products in the Formation Suite are available now with more promised later this year. The first speakers include:
Uniquely characterized by its 120-degree elliptical speaker shape and dedicated full-range stereo sound components, to deliver room filling high-resolution sound.
Designed to sit beneath a 55in TV screen, the soundbar features nine optimised drive units provide a wide soundstage including a dedicated centre channel.
Opposed drivers, powerful amplifiers and Dynamic EQ provide outstanding bass response without distortion. Can be paired with other Formation components for extra, focused bass.
A wireless stereo pair of speakers that take longer to get out of the box than to set up and start playing hi-res music. Duo uses the same Carbon Dome tweeter-on-top technology and Continuum Cone mid/bass drive unit as Bowers & Wilkins’ industry-defining wired speakers. The Duo is designed for either using on stands or they can be placed on a bookshelf.
Patented Formation Wireless Technology turns any traditional analogue component into a high-fidelity streaming device for a best-of-all-worlds sound experience.
