High-end audio company Bowers & Wilkins is edging into Sonos’ territory these days. One look at the units in the Formation Suite of wireless speakers reveals a beautiful lineup that looks extremely capable. And sounds it, too.
The Formation Suite boasts high-quality streaming via the Robust Mesh Network; the network connects wireless devices without any noticeable lag. Listeners will certainly enjoy the ability to enjoy audio playback at up to 24-bit/96 kHz resolution; the more complex digital mapping is generally preferred by connoisseurs, as it allows for a more detailed soundstage.
Each item in the Formation Suite serves a different purpose: the Formation Bar, the Formation Duo speakers, the Formation Wedge, the Formation Bass, and the Formation Audio Hub all have their place as stand-alone speakers, or stereo or home theater components. Most are Airplay 2 and Bluetooth compatible.
Prices for individual collection pieces range from $699.99 to $3,999.99.
