Wireless audio systems are the new standard for convenience and whole-home connectivity. But often that means compromise – lower quality and breaks in the sound. Introducing the Bowers & Wilkins Formation® Suite – the first wireless audio system that lives up to the exacting standards of Bowers & Wilkins. Exclusive Formation® Wireless Technology combines perfected speaker synchronisation using a proprietary mesh network and industry-leading 96kHz/24-bit high streaming capability. That means an immersive, seamless, high-fidelity soundstage, wirelessly. It redefines the standard while remaining true to our heritage groundbraking innovation. It’s why Bowers & Wilkins like to think that the Formation® Suite is the Highest Form of Sound™.

    • Perfected Speaker Synchronization – an industry-defining, completely immersive soundstage experience, due to an imperceptible in-room 1 microsecond sync between speakers
    • Patented Robust Mesh Network – developed to run independently from your home Wi-Fi network for seamless sound
