B&W wants to deliver a ‘truly immersive’ multi-room experience with new Formation Suite

Back on form

Bower & Wilkins has introduced a new range of high-end wireless speakers that look more like alien artefacts than multi-room marvels. The B&W Formation Suite currently comprises five devices: the Formation Duo active wireless speakers, Formation Wedge wireless speaker, Formation Bass subwoofer, Formation Bar soundbar, and Formation Audio wireless hub. Each has been designed to serve a unique purpose, but all five can be seamlessly connected using B&W’s imperceptible Formation Wireless synchronisation tech to create a completely immersive soundstage experience. You’ll be able to set up and control each speaker using B&W’s own Formation app, while there’s also support for the likes of Apple AirPlay 2, Roon Ready, and Spotify Connect. First though you’ll actually need to get yourself a speaker or two, and with prices ranging from $899 to $3999, you might need a bit of time to save some pennies.

I’m a freelance games and technology journalist currently mashing my keyboard in the name of fine institutions like Stuff, where you'll usually find me waxing lyrical about the latest mobile morsels. I've also been known to cook up some decidedly delicious reviews from time to time, and was once dubbed 'the games industry's answer to Nigella Lawson' by someone probably somewhere.
