Transform Your Traditional Passive System into a High-Resolution, Multi-Room-Capable Wireless Streaming System: B&W Formation Audio Hub/Network Player Does 24-Bit/96kHz

Turn your traditional passive high-end stereo into a high-resolution, multi-room wireless streaming system in seconds by adding to the B&W Formation Audio hub/network player to your chain. Designed to work in concert with all B&W Formation wireless speakers anywhere in your home, the Roon-ready Formation Audio employs a cutting-edge ADC and complementary DAC to ensure no lags or breaks result, even in distant rooms. Equally important, the app-controllable Formation Audio delivers striking 24-bit/96kHz streaming quality – an achievement that permanently changes whole-house audio for good. Apple AirPlay 2, Spotify, Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi compatibility – as well as aptX HD, AAC, and SBC connectivity – add to the flexibility. Two RCA inputs, a Toslink input, one RCA digital output, two RCA analog outputs, and a network input comes standard.

Whether you want to stream from your favorite services or send the content being played on a disc, LP, or other component to another room, the 2.2-pound Formation Audio makes it automatically happen. Courtesy of an imperceptible in-room one-microsecond sync between speakers, Formation Audio perfectly synchronizes with any other Formation Series device, making it not only a standalone component but a gateway to and piece of an uncompromising package that delivers engrossing fidelity – and the same uninterrupted, time-phase-true program throughout your house via a patented Robust Mesh Network developed to run independently from your Wi-Fi network.

With Formation Audio, the future of hassle-free, wire-free, high-end sound is here. 100% Music Direct Guaranteed.

"While the Formation Audio may be little more than a hub or transmitter, there is no denying it's a stellar piece of product design, one that is easy to set up and live with day-to-day."
– Andrew Robinson, Home Theater Review
