BOWERS & WILKINS CONFIDENTLY AIMS TO SIMPLIFY IMMERSIVE HOME AUDIO WITH THE PANORAMA 3
Bowers & Wilkins has been producing great audio products for over 50 years and is constantly creating unique, cutting-edge designs supported by world-class R&D to provide you with premium audio speakers and headphones for the home. The Panorama 3 soundbar is the latest addition to their stellar line-up of home audio products. It's been 13 years since Bowers & Wilkins released its first soundbar, the Panorama, which emphasised sonic fidelity and had an all-in-one design that didn't require an extra subwoofer. This was followed in 2013 by the Panorama 2, a soundbar with HDMI and better driver quality. Panorama 2 was released around nine years ago, and now we have Panorama 3. Panorama 3 is an integrated system designed to interface with contemporary TVs that does not require an extra subwoofer or back speakers to produce high-performance Dolby Atmos sound. Built on the foundations of Bowers & Wilkins' original Panorama surround soundbar, the Panorama 3 blends simple design with cutting-edge technology to provide Dolby Atmos in small spaces. 2
EXPERIENCE TRULY IMMERSIVE DOLBY ATMOS SOUND QUALITY WITH THE EMBEDDED 13 DRIVER SETUP
The Panorama 3, Bowers & Wilkins' first Dolby Atmos soundbar, firmly aspires to simplify spectacular home audio and movie experiences. The Panorama 3 accomplishes this by using 13 individually and carefully positioned drivers that offer the most realistic, believable spatial audio ever heard from a sound bar. The B&W Panorama 3 Soundbar has a 3 x 19mm (0.75in) Titanium dome tweeter, a 6 x 50mm (2in) Woven glass fibre cone bass/midrange unit, a 2 x 50mm (2in) Woven glass fibre cone atmosdrive unit, and a 2 x 100mm (4in) Low profile bass unit for high-resolution sound supporting Dolby Atmos & Dolby TrueHD. Dolby Atmos is achieved by using twin physical 50mm up-firing drivers that use the reflected-sound technique for the two overhead channels, while dedicated left, centre, and right (LCR) drivers offer excellent stereo separation as well as exceptional resolution and clarity. This impressive array is powered by 400 watts of Class D amplification. Each tweeter, subwoofer, and Elevation unit receive 40 watts, and each pair of midrange drivers receives 40 watts.
PRUDENTLY DESIGNED TO OFFER SEAMLESS WIRED AND WIRELESS CONNECTIVITY AND STREAMING CAPABILITY
Bowers & Wilkins is a heritage audio brand that applies what they've learned over the years from creating loudspeakers. This is mirrored in the all-new Panorama 3. The Panorama 3 has an HDMI eARC input for rapid, easy, and effortless connectivity. It supports a wide range of audio formats and produces high-quality, room-filling audio for your movies, music, and TV shows. Connect your TV to the soundbar through HDMI to enjoy precise audio with great clarity. For service connections, the Panorama 3 additionally has conventional Digital Audio In (Toslink), RJ45 Ethernet connector, and USB-C. If you want to avoid wires, the Panorama 3 also offers Bluetooth 5 (Class 2) connection, supporting codecs such as aptX Adaptive, AAC, and SBC, allowing you to stream music and content at 24-bit high-resolution. You can also connect to the Panorama 3 via AirPlay and a variety of streaming providers via the dedicated app. This connectivity is well thought out and allows you to enjoy your music and videos in high quality.
EFFORTLESS SET-UP PROCESS THROUGH THE DEDICATED APP ALONG WITH SUPPORT FOR VOICE CONTROLS
The Bowers & Wilkins Music app, which is available for iOS and Android, makes it simple to set up the Panorama 3. The simple app guides you through the process of connecting the Panorama 3 to power and your preferred TV connection, detecting the soundbar on your Wi-Fi network, and attaching it to a specified room in your house. Once configured, you can utilise the dedicated Music App to merge your preferred music-streaming providers into a single, simple interface. Once set, choose your favourite music and stream it in Hi-Res from a variety of streaming services, podcasts, and radio stations, including Deezer, Qobuz, Tidal, Spotify Connect, TuneIn, LastFM, and others. You may also use the built-in Amazon Alexa voice control to play your favourite music, podcast, or playlist with a simple spoken command. With the addition of these features, managing the Panorama 3 becomes a breeze and significantly improves your listening experience.

The Story of Bowers & Wilkins
Bowers & Wilkins was founded in 1966 in England when John Bowers hand-assembled loudspeakers for local clients under the name B&W Electronics. His assembled loudspeakers and knowledge of classical music impressed Miss Knight, an elderly lady who left him £10,000 in her will to develop a business. Bowers & Wilkins has developed and flourished since then and has made a mark in the minds of audiophiles today.
