Broaden the soundstage of the movies, TV shows, and music you enjoy with the new Bowers & Wilkins Panorama 3 Soundbar. It features three discrete front channels for stereo audio and dialogue, plus two up-firing Atmos drivers that deliver overhead sound effects to envelop you in your content. Panorama 3 has been specifically designed to offer great sound from just one component, with no need for an external subwoofer. Don’t let its elegant design and low profile (just 2.5" tall) fool you―Panorama 3 packs enough punch to fill most living rooms. The soundbar still features 13 individual drive units, including twin subwoofers, built in, for deep bass, plus 400W of amplification. As for stereo separation, at 47.2" wide, left and right channels can be heard distinctly at most distances.
Bowers & Wilkins designed the Panorama 3 to be as unobtrusive as possible for convenient integration with short TV stands, while providing the high-quality, immersive audio of the previous models in the series. (You can also mount the soundbar on the wall with the included hardware, if you prefer.) With onboard Wi-Fi and Ethernet connectivity, you can stream via AirPlay 2, Spotify Connect, Deezer, SoundCloud, TIDAL, TuneIn, and other services. Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity is also onboard for streaming from a local device.
In addition to Dolby Atmos, the Panorama 3 can decode Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby TrueHD, and LPCM. Its HDMI port is eARC-compatible, offering a one-cable solution that allows multichannel audio to flow from your TV’s built-in apps and other connected devices, such as game consoles, to the soundbar.
Connection is simple: just one HDMI cable is all you need to link your Panorama 3 to your TV and share the sound from any other sources you may have, such as set-top box or game consoles. Once connected, you can use your existing remote to control the Panorama 3’s volume and power functions. The soundbar also includes ‘‘hidden until lit’’ buttons on its top surface for instant control.
The Bowers & Wilkins Music App walks you through the setup process and can handle all your daily interactions with the soundbar and your favorite music services. Specially curated playlists provided by Bowers & Wilkins are also available via the app. Or, for a more hands-off approach, you can ask Alexa―built into the soundbar―to play your favorite tracks.
