”The Wedge has a balanced, cohesive sound that cannot be ignored – and that makes it a class-leader in its category.” ‘What Hi-Fi’ – 5 Star review. Tested at £899.

Room-filling sound

With its unique, 120-degree elliptical wedge shape, this Formation speaker gets the perfect angle on room-filling sound. The wide imaging front baffle means that you get a broader, more immersive sound – wherever you happen to sit in the room. Thanks to the built-in, stereo speakers, the soundstage is accurately recreated, sounding just as the artists intended.

Built-in sub for powerful bass
Complementing the spacious sound is powerful bass delivery. Using a dedicated, 6 inch sub, with its own 80 watt amp, bass sounds deep and tight. For a relatively compact speaker, the Formation Wedge certainly packs a punch.

Pump up the volume with optional Formation Bass
Impressive as this wireless speaker is, adding the Formation Bass takes the sound to the next level. Ideal for larger rooms, party-level volumes and simply when you need to feel the sound, the Formation Bass extends the bass right down to a window-rattling 20Hz. Because the speakers are developed together, the tonality remains consistent between them, giving a seamless sound from top to bottom.

Stunning style
Form follows function with the Wedge, meaning the elliptical wedge-shape doesn’t just help the sound, it also helps create a stunning style. Whereas many speakers look ugly at the back, this fan-shaped beauty uses a sleek, wood effect panel for a luxury aesthetic.

Formation sound all around your home
The Bowers & Wilkins Formation system offers high-end sound quality with effortless, multi-room versatility. It uses a patented, robust mesh network for perfect speaker synchronisation all around your home. Set-up is quick and easy and Formation is compatible with all popular streaming systems, including Bluetooth, AirPlay, Roon and Spotify. For the best possible sound, Formation is also compatible with 24 bit/96kHz Hi-Res music files.

High-resolution sound
With the ability to stream up to 24 bit/96kHz, the Formation is capable of streaming at twice the fidelity of its leading competitor. This gives the sound purer harmonics for a more life-like sound. It also means you get to hear your Hi-Res music files to their full potential.

Robust, Formation Wireless Technology
Developed to run independently from your home wi-fi, Formation Wireless Technology delivers an unbeatably stable connection. The more Formation units you add, the stronger the mesh becomes, meaning you can stretch to the furthest parts or your home where wi-fi may be patchy. The mesh also helps deliver perfect synchronisation between all the Formation speakers in your home.

Easy to set up
Simply download the Bowers & Wilkins Home app from the Apple or Google stores and you’re ready to go. Set-up is fast and intuitive, with each additional speaker clearly identified on the app.

Wide-ranging compatibility
Whichever way you choose to stream your music, the Formation is likely to be compatible. With built-in wi-fi and Bluetooth, you can stream from a huge range of sources. Formation is also compatible with the most popular streaming systems and services, including Apple AirPlay 2, Spotify Connect (Premium account required) and the multi-room system, Roon.

Enjoy a wireless speaker that puts sound first, with the Bowers & Wilkins Formation Wedge.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic service! I bought this a few months ago and it was excellent. It soon broke down, but Richer Sounds replaced it straightaway with a new one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great styling and amazing sound I purchased this speaker to inject some life into my sound system. I wanted an easy to connect speaker that I could play from my iPhone and that would sound great and that's exactly what I got although tone honest it sounds much better than I could have imagined. Its not cheap but you get what you pay for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing all round Bought the B and W wedge......wow. Great service and a great speaker.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant sound I purchased the wedge without actually hearing what it sounded like. I read the reviews on it and they sounded very good. As you would expect from Bowers and Wilkins it didn't let me down. Sound quality is fantastic no matter what genre of music I listen too. Definitely recommend. The only thing I would avoid is the bowers and wilkins wall bracket. I found it to be very limiting and ended up taking it down off the wall.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous Bluetooth speaker Love it and the family love it too. Top quality sound from such a compact speaker... and I’m pretty fussy. Sounded better to me than the Naim Gen 2 cube.
