A range of wireless speakers has been unveiled by Bowers & Wilkins this week specifically designed for audiophiles and serious hi-fi enthusiasts in the form of the Bowers & Wilkins Formation wireless speaker range. The Formation range offers users “high-fidelity performance” underpinned by 24-bit audio and 96kHz sample-rate streaming.
The new hardware will also feature a mesh networking system co-developed by EVA Automation, the parent company of Bowers & Wilkins. Exclusive to the Bowers & Wilkins wireless speaker range the patented technology enables the B&W speakers to synchronise at roughly one microsecond.
More information on all the new speakers in the range jump over to the Engadget website by following the link below. Bowers & Wilkins demoed all of the products at a launch event in England last week. Unfortunately none of the new hardware support voice control or “smart” third-party services such as Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa and the like. Although this may be a positive for some.
The Formation range is now available to purchase throughout the United States and will be available throughout the United Kingdom in a few days time from April 27th, 2019 onwards. For more details and pricing jump over to the Bowers & Wilkins website. if
