Bowers & Wilkins Formation Bar – Hi-Fidelity Soundbar For Music & Movies

With Formation Bar, Bowers & Wilkins has created a powerful multiroom soundbar that delivers their legendary sound quality with wireless streaming flexibility. Formation Bar features nine optimised drive units optimally positioned in a sleek design to create a wider, all-inclusive, soundstage, while a dedicated centre channel layers in crisp, clear dialogue. With its IR learning function Formation Bar can learn your TV remotes volume commands giving seamless control.

Serious Hi-Fi Performance  

Most soundbars struggle when it comes to playing music with poor stereo imaging and dynamics, Bowers & Wilkins engineers have used their vast experience and expertise to create a soundbar that performs equally as well when playing music as it does when playing the latest blockbuster movie. The end result is an attractive soundbar that places you centre stage for all your favourite movies, TV shows, sports events and music.

Optional Wireless Subwoofer

To enhance the sound of your Formation Bar even further you can add Formation Bass, a unique wireless subwoofer with performance far beyond what you would usually expect for such a compact design.

Wireless Versatility

As well as being an exceptional sound system for your Television Formation Bar is also a simple to use wireless speaker. You can stream your music to it via aptX HD Bluetooth, AirPlay 2, Roon or Spotify Connect. 

The dedicated Formation app provides a streamlined and intuitive user interface to make initial set-up a breeze. By adding other Bowers & Wilkins Formation products you can easily expand your music into other areas of your home. Other Formation products include Formation Duo speakers, Formation Wedge, Formation Bass and the Formation Audio Hub. (see related products below)
