Bowers & Wilkins Launches the New Formation Suite Wireless Multiroom Audio System

Bowers & Wilkins Launches the New Formation Suite Wireless Multiroom Audio System

Introducing Bowers & Wilkins Formation Suite, Wireless multiroom audio system.

Bowers & Wilkins have developed a wireless Technology using a proprietary mesh network and industry-leading 96kHz/24-bit streaming capability with perfected speaker synchronisation. That means an immersive, seamless, high-fidelity soundstage, wirelessly

The Formation suite comprises of:

Formation Duo

Formation Duo – the first wireless speakers that live up to the exacting audiophile standards of Bowers & Wilkins. Each one features their patented, Carbon Dome, tweeter-on-top technology for crystal clear highs, and the same innovative Continuum cone driver found on their industry-defining 800 Series Diamond speakers. When coupled with their exclusive Formation® Wireless Technology that produces an immersive, seamless, high-fidelity soundstage, we are redefining “wireless audio” – true to their groundbreaking heritage. 

Formation Bass

The Formation Bass, as part of the Formation Suite, puts even wired subwoofers to the test. Its unique patented cylindrical design enables the use of opposed dual driver technology to reduce distortion, while
a powerful Class D amplifier with Dynamic EQ delivers crisp, clean sound. Formation Bass is more accurate, well-timed, and more expressive than ever creating a greater depth of sound you can not only hear, but also feel. It also pairs seamlessly with other speakers in the Formation Suite

 

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 has created a powerful multiroom soundbar that delivers legendary sound quality with wireless streaming flexibility. Bowers & Wilkins engineers designed nine optimised drive units born from their legendary loudspeakers and have them optimally positioned in a sleek design to create a wider, all-inclusive, soundstage, while a dedicated centre channel layers in crisp, clear dialogue.

Formation Wedge

With Bowers & Wilkins Formation Wedge, experience legendary, room-filling Bowers & Wilkins audio quality, married with purposeful design that is meant to please the eyes as well as the ears. True to our heritage of uncompromising sound quality, the unique 120-degree elliptical speaker shape was created to hold a full-range of high frequency, midrange and subwoofer components for a true stereo effect, with calculated, angled drivers so sound reaches every part of a room. Stream in 96/24 quality and sync easily with other Formation speakers for a complete high-fidelity, multiroom set up. Formation Wedge, as part of the Formation Suite

Formation Audio

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. It finally 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. Our analogue-to-digital converter ensures there are no lag or breaks in sound, even between rooms, while 96/24-bit streaming maintains legendary Bowers & Wilkins sound resolution. Just think – existing passive sound system quality, now synced to stream anywhere, wirelessly

Musical Fidelity Nu Vista 600 Integrated Amplifier

Musical Fidelity Nu Vista 600 Integrated Amplifier

The latest integrated amplifier from MF combines the smooth sound of valves with the power of a 200 watt per channel solid state output. It looks and feels like a true luxury high-end product and its sound could be described as "an iron fist in a velvet glove". Its tonality is warm and smooth, but the bass is strong and propulsive without any signs of the slow and turgid sound that you hear in some lesser amplifiers. Large scale classical works sound absolutely tremendous through this amplifier.
