Bowers & Wilkins Launches Formation Suite

Bowers & Wilkins Launches Formation Suite

The Highest Form Of Sound™

Bowers & Wilkins have spent the last fifty years building an enviable reputation in loudspeakers and groundbreaking innovation. Their ethos of continual improvement and unrelenting attention to detail is widely known and highly regarded.

In the last decade, wireless audio systems have set a standard for convenience and whole-home connectivity.  But quite often that can mean compromise – lower quality performance and breaks in sound. Bowers & Wilkins’ new product suite, Formation®, addresses this and is the first wireless audio system that lives up to the exacting standards of the brand.  Exclusive Formation® Wireless Technology combines perfected speaker synchronization using a proprietary mesh network and industry-leading 96kHz/24-bit streaming capability.  That means an immersive, seamless, high-fidelity soundstage, wirelessly. 

The Formation suite comprises:

Formation Bar; a soundbar that gives a wide and inclusive soundstage for music and movies.

Formation Duo; featuring Tweeter-On-Top technology and Continuum cones for wired fidelity, wirelessly*.

Formation Audio; to enable analogue sources and traditional hi fi to be part of your Formation network.

Formation Wedge; a unique 120-degree elliptical design that creates full-range stereo sound.

Formation Bass; to add impressive audio depth to Formation Bar, Formation Wedge or Formation Duo.

Every product in the suite combines innovative speaker technology and class-leading wireless technology. The transducer technology and exactingly positioned drive units in Formation Wedge and Formation Bar deliver an immersive audio experience while Formation Duo employs Tweeter-On-Top technology, Carbon Dome Tweeters found in the revered 700 Series and Continuum, developed for the legendary 800 Series Diamond, all to give superlative sound and ultimate fidelity to whatever you choose to play.

At the heart of every Formation product is exclusive Formation® Wireless Technology – Bowers & Wilkins patented system for wired fidelity, wirelessly*.  It allows for perfected speaker synchronization – an industry-defining, completely immersive soundstage experience, due to an imperceptible in-room 1 microsecond sync between speakers. Formation runs on a patented robust mesh network – developed to run independently from your home Wi-Fi network for seamless sound and capable of streaming 96kHz/24-bit audio resolution. Formation products are also fully scalable - expand through your entire home with additional Formation products.

*Fidelity refers to Superlative Bowers & Wilkins Sound
