Blame it on Sonos. In the early 2000s, at what was then the Los Angeles headquarters of the Stereophile Guide to Home Theater, we were visited by a gentleman from that then largely unknown company who had a product he was eager to promote: a wireless...

B&W's newly-launched Formation wireless multi-room system has something for everyone, including home cinema fans. The Formation Bar is, you guessed it, a soundbar, and the Formation Bass is a beautifully compact subwoofer. They're two separate products...

International Review By Hifitest.de on 90

Die englische Lautsprechermarke Bowers & Wilkins ist immer wieder für Überraschungen gut, sei es ein neues Membranmaterial, außergewöhnliche Formgebung, exklusive Verarbeitung oder einfach nur exzellenter Klang. Mit der brandaktuellen Formation-Serie...

International Review By Stereo DE on 85

Die B&W Formation „Bar“ ist eine optisch extravagante und durch ihre Drahtlos-Funktionen auch technisch außergewöhnliche Lösung für anspruchsvolle Ästheten. Die Verarbeitung ist ausgezeichnet, die Bedienung via TV-Fernbedienung oder die Formation App...
