Bowers & Wilkins enters the Dolby Atmos soundbar market! Coming shoulder to shoulder with products like the Sonos Arc, Panorama 3 has the answer… And it’s an affordable price.
Bowers & Wilkins’ Panorama 3 has 13 separate speakers, two for bass. In total, the soundbar develops 400W. And with its perfectly synchronized, upward-firing speakers, sound that projects through the ceiling can radiate Dolby Atmos effects for even more immersion. At the same time, this is the first stick of the manufacturer compatible with sound spatialization technology.
The manufacturer explains that the design of the product was overseen by the same team of engineers who designed the speakers at the legendary Abbey Road studio. Quality guaranteed! It is also possible to enjoy lossless music provided by streaming services such as Qobuz, Tidal and others, but through the Bowers & Wilkins mobile app.
The manufacturer assures that there is no need to install a subwoofer or other components in the soundbar. On the back of the Panorama 3 are the main ports necessary to get the most out of its content: an eARC compatible HDMI, a Toslink, an Ethernet port, and a USB-C port that will only be used for actual technical assistance. Spotify Connect and AirPlay 2 support, as well as Bluetooth 5 (with aptX support) and Wi-Fi are also included. The soundbar can also launch Alexa.
Panorama 3 will be able to work in multi-room, a function that is not yet available: it will be necessary to wait for the update of the internal software. But the good news is Bowers & Wilkins provides a wall mount, unlike Sonos with the Arc. All this unfortunately comes at a cost and is not cheap: the soundbar costs €999.
