The ultimate setup of a traditional Bowers & Wilkins sound system, for decades, has been the definition of high-fidelity sound. Now, the uncompromising Bowers & Wilkins audio heritage is married with 21st-century streaming convenience due to the new Formation Audio.
Audio enables high-quality wireless streaming to your existing passive system or from existing passive components – CD player, turntable, or other pieces – to wireless Formation speakers, anywhere in the home.
The integrated analogue-to-digital converter ensures there are no lag or breaks in sound, even between rooms, while 96/24-bit streaming maintains legendary B&W sound resolution.
