Bowers & Wilkins Formation BAR Soundbar

Wireless audio systems are the new standard for convenience and whole-home connectivity. But often that means compromise – lower quality and breaks in the sound. Introducing the Bowers & Wilkins Formation® Suite – the first wireless audio system that lives up to the exacting standards of Bowers & Wilkins. Exclusive Formation® Wireless Technology combines perfected speaker synchronisation using a proprietary mesh network and industry-leading 96kHz/24-bit high streaming capability. That means an immersive, seamless, high-fidelity soundstage, wirelessly. It redefines the standard while remaining true to our heritage groundbraking innovation. It’s why Bowers & Wilkins like to think that the Formation® Suite is the Highest Form of Sound™.

Exclusive Formation® Wireless Technology – Bowers & Wilkins patented system for wired fidelity, wirelessly*. Combines:

  • Perfected Speaker Synchronisation – an industry-defining, completely immersive soundstage experience, due to an imperceptible in-room 1 microsecond sync between speakers
  • Patented Robust Mesh Network – developed to run independently from your home Wi-Fi network for seamless sound
  • 96kHz/24-bit Audio Resolution – High resolution streaming with twice the fidelity than the leading wireless speaker brand for the purest and clearest audio experience

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 flexibility. Bowers & Wilkins engineers designed nine optimized 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 center channel layers in crisp, clear dialogue. The combination makes an entire room "center stage," for a truly immersive audio experience that will make your home theatre part of the Highest Form of Sound™.
