Bowers & Wilkins are known for their high-end audio products. Made for true audiophiles, their home audio products were wired, until today. They launched their new line of wireless home audio products called Formation.
The Formation line up has five devices that will allow for multi-room speaker setup. We had a chance to quickly demo the Formation speakers in action at an event last week. What’s great about the Formation suite is that you get classic Bowers & Wilkins sound and acoustic experience, with the convenience of wireless streaming.
