Description

What a Wireless Soundbar Should Be: Three-Channel B&W Formation Bar Plays with Illuminating Sound, Streams High-Res 24-bit/96kHz, and Features Nine Drive Units

Forget all you know about wireless soundbars. The B&W Formation Bar changes everything – going as far as providing such illuminating sound, the pictures you see on your display will seem even clear. No fewer than none optimized drive units derived from the company's iconic speaker series complement cutting-edge versatility, stellar connectivity, and high-resolution 24-bit/96kHz streaming to comprise a sleek-looking component that plays with ultra-wide, inclusive soundstaging all the while having a dedicated center channel that makes every piece of dialogue crisp, clear, and present.

Controllable via an app, the Roon-ready Formation Bar perfectly synchronizes with any other Formation Series product, making it not only a standalone unit but a gateway to and piece of an uncompromising whole-home-audio 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. The three-channel Formation Bar also sets up in a flash and interfaces with Apple AirPlay 2, Spotify, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and more.

From a technical standpoint, Formation Bar has no peers. Three one-inch double-dome tweeters and six 2.5-inch woven glass-fiber drivers optimally angled for captivating fidelity abet an advanced DSP, powerful internal amplifier, and dynamic EQ to deliver unprecedented performance. Plus, at 4.3 x 48.8 x 4.2 inches (HWD), it meshes with practically any home-theater arrangement. And since it will enable you to listen to TV audio, streaming services, network stored files, Bluetooth-audio sources, Internet Radio, and more (particularly when paired with a Formation Audio hub), it serves double duty as a head-turning music machine.

Discover the future-is-now world of soundbars in your own home with a risk-free audition of Formation Bar, backed by the security of our 100% Music Direct Guarantee.

"Each product, or 'pillar' so to speak, of its foundations in the Formation range, is rock solid. It has put a marker down for best-in-class wireless loudspeakers, and with products like these, the future is bright for Bowers & Wilkins."
