Slim bar, high-performance sound
Bowers & Wilkins has decades of experience building high-performance audio gear, and their excellent speakers and headphones are well-known around the world. The Panorama 3 is the company's latest premium sound bar, and their first ever to feature immersive Dolby Atmos surround sound.
This sound bar was designed without compromise with the intent of producing the best performance possible from a one-speaker system. This single slim bar delivers accurate, room-filling home theater sound, and it's low-profile design allows it to fit under most TV screens.
An impressive array of speakers
The Panorama 3 has no less than 13 built-in speakers. The front left and right channels are positioned near the end of the bar to deliver a wide soundstage and enveloping effects. And two dedicated up-firing channels bounce sound down to your listening position from overhead, giving TV, game, and movie soundtracks a sense of height. The bar also features a low-frequency channel, which produce powerful bass to add impact to the action onscreen.
This 3.1.2-channel configuration allows the sound bar to precisely direct sound for spatial audio that feels like it's coming from all around you — all without placing multiple speakers around your room or running wire across the floor.
Music streaming options aplenty
You can control this sound bar and play music from your mobile device using the Bowers & Wilkins Music App. The bar comes with built-in Spotify Connect, and the app supports a ton of streaming services like Qobuz, TIDAL, Deezer, and TuneIn. Built-in Bluetooth with aptX® Adaptive gives you another option for high-quality audio streaming. The system even supports playback of high-res audio sources up to 24-bit resolution.
Built-in AirPlay 2
Apple fans are in good hands. AirPlay 2 lets you stream using an iPhone® or iPad® and connect the sound bar to the AirPlay ecosystem. If you're a subscriber to Apple Music®, you can also use Siri to control and play that service with your voice too.
Create a multi-room audio system with Formation
The Panorama 3 can tie into a wireless multi-room audio ecosystem by connecting to compatible Formationand Zeppelinspeakers. You can control music all around your house with the Bowers & Wilkins Music App. Play the same song everywhere at once or different music in each room. The kids can listen to "How Far I'll Go" from the Moana soundtrack (again) in the living room while you jam to Two Cello's cover of "Trooper" in the kitchen cooking dinner at the same time.
Convenient voice control
With Alexa built-in, you can control the sound bar system with just your voice. You can also ask Alexa to play music, make calls, check the weather, snag recipes, and more. Forget the name of the actor who plays the protagonist in Memento? You can sort that out with Alexa, then maybe write it down just in case — while "I Don't Remember" by Peter Gabriel plays in the background.
