  • Unparalleled finish, best sounding soundbar!
    Reviewed by tommyjai - June 15, 2019

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I've been looking for a good soundbar to complement my new 65 inch TV. I've found that this soundbar is the perfect length and provides the range I need for my living room. The design is beautiful and is an instant conversation starter, the fit and finish of the sound bar is very impressive and is exactly what you'll expect from a high end product. The setup took less than two minutes and I was blown away by the range of the sound. I tested the bar with and without the bass and felt that it can really stand on its own but the bass is needed if you watch a lot of action movies or listen to music with a lot of deep bass.

  • This is really an incredible product
    Reviewed by speak - May 24, 2019

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I'm blown away by the sound quality of this sound bar! I've never heard anything with such a pure and full sound. We installed in our theater room and it's been awesome, even in the back of the room. The design is elegant and fits nicely with the style of our home because the bar has some contours and shaping. If you're looking for excellence in sound and design this is definitely the sound bar to get. I will say that it's not a product you can get out of the box and start jamming seconds later. Read the directions, do the appropriate installation and utilize the app in the correct way. Cheers

  • Difficult to set up
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Frustrated - May 16, 2020

    After several hours of trying to set up and going online with BOWERS & WILKINS Web site I never could get the audio to be consistent to operate on it's own without running with the Smart TV audio or not at all. BLUETOOTH was always jumping in and out of PAIRING. Then not to have a remote and Loading the B & W APP it was a terrible time to get the app to pair the TV remote with the SOUNDBAR. I have had B&W speakers in the past with truly the best audio sounds from my home theater system with their speakers, thus the reason for purchasing B&W's FORMATION SOUNDBAR....I wanted so desperately for their soundbar to work because of BOWERS and WILKINS noted for being a leader in the AUDIO INDUSTRY.
