Bowers & Wilkins Formation Bar Wireless Soundbar


Trade-in available

Formation Bar from Bowers & Wilkins is a network connected, wireless active TV soundbar that provides extremely high performance reproduction of TV audio and Formation audio streams.

Formation Bar will enable you to listen to audio from your TV, from streaming services (like Spotify, Apple Music, and Roon), from Internet Radio, from network stored audio files, from appropriately enabled Bluetooth devices, and even from devices such as turntables (via a phono preamp) and CD players that are connected via a B&W Formation Audio.

Available in black finish only.



Formation Bar

Wireless soundbars are supposed to help give a full, immersive home theatre sound experience in a compact design, but often they fall short, with too few speakers that aren’t placed at an optimum angle due to the limited shape and size.

With Formation Bar, Bowers & Wilkins have created a powerful multi-room soundbar that delivers their legendary sound quality with the flexibility of wireless streaming.

B&W engineers have designed nine optimised drive units born from their legendary loudspeakers, optimally positioned in a sleek design to create a wider, all-inclusive soundstage. In addition, a dedicated centre channel delivers crisp, clear dialogue.

The combination makes an entire room "centre stage", for a truly immersive audio experience that will make your home theatre experience a part of the Highest Form of Sound™

More Information


Bowers & Wilkins

Bowers & Wilkins (B&W) is now a very large company, with distribution chains and customers all over the world. However it began in 1966 with John Bowers hand-assembling speaker systems for local clients in Worthing, West Sussex, in the back of the electrical store that he ran with his friend Roy Wilkins.

Five decades later the company is a global leader in sound, and in 2016 Bowers & Wilkins were incredibly proud to celebrate their 50th anniversary – and even more proud that the ethos, passion and drive of its founder is still a vital element in its continuing success.
