“The Panorama 3 is the best soundbar Bowers & Wilkins has made so far, and by extension among the best soundbars you can buy.” ’Tech Radar’ – Recommended.

Dolby Atmos for room-filling sound

The Panorama 3 is the first Bowers & Wilkins soundbar to feature Dolby Atmos and what a start! Using twin, dedicated glass woven fibre cones, sound is fired upwards for a truly three-dimensional effect. Whether you’re deep within a jungle or in the centre of an intergalactic space battle, you’re immersed by the special effects whizzing all about you.

World-class Bowers & Wilkins speakers
What separates the Panorama 3 from other many other soundbars is the quality of speakers. Widely regarded as one of the finest speaker manufacturer’s in the world, Bowers & Wilkins are found in all the best places; from premium car brands to Abbey Road studios. No surprise, then, that the speakers in the Panorama are some of the best in the business. From the triple, titanium dome tweeters to Bower’s & Wilkins’ iconic woven glass fibre cones, the speaker drivers used all contribute to the astonishing sound quality.

Crystal-clear vocals
For the crispest, clearest vocals, Bowers & Wilkins fit the Panorama 3 with a dedicated centre channel. The two-way, centre channel speaker produces full-range sound that focuses on articulating speech as clearly as possible. This means that, even with a myriad of special effects and music all around you, you’ll still be able to clearly follow the dialogue – no matter how intense the action gets.

Bass – built-in
With twin, 100mm woofer cones built-in, there’s plenty of bass on board. Combined with the mighty 400 watt amplifier, you get all the power and bass depth you need to drive soundtracks along with verve. Compared to your TV’s speakers, or even lesser soundbars, you’ll hear far more of the soundtrack, with a full-bodied sound that’s typical of the Bowers & Wilkins experience.

Easy to set up
Simply download the Bowers & Wilkins app from the Apple or Google stores and you’re ready to go. Set-up is fast and intuitive, with the speaker clearly identified on the app. Connection to your TV is made simple, via the HDMI eARC socket. There’s also an optical input for other sources that may not have and HDMI socket.

Stream your way
Built into the latest Panorama, you’ll find AirPlay 2, Bluetooth aptX Adaptive and direct access to Spotify Connect (Premium account required). This makes it quick and easy to stream music straight from your music device – be it Apple, Android or other Bluetooth enabled music source.

Control your music services under one ‘roof’, with the Bowers & Wilkins Music app
The easiest way to access music on your Panorama is via the Bowers & Wilkins Music app. This brings together a wide range of streaming services, all under central control. It’s currently compatible with Deezer, NTS Radio, Qobuz, SoundCloud, TIDAL and TuneIn, with others being added soon. Search for the artist, album or song you want and you’re offered content from all the services you subscribe to. Over time, the app learns your music tastes, helping it tailor the results to best suit you.

Voice control via Alexa
Built-in Amazon Alexa voice control lets you play your favourite music by simple voice command. Alexa support makes this a speaker the whole family can use – even if they don’t have a smartphone.

Multi-room playback compatible
For added versatility, the Panorama 3 can also be integrated into Bower & Wilkins’ multi-room system. Set-up is quick and easy and the system is compatible with all popular streaming systems, including Bluetooth, AirPlay, Roon and Spotify. For the best possible sound quality, the multi-room system is also compatible with 24 bit/96kHz Hi-Res music files.

Enjoy the thrill of the cinema, at home, with the Bowers & Wilkins Panorama 3.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very very impressive as long as it's not DTS Following up from my LG G2 Review I've owned a few Yamaha sound bars and various subs over the years , I was always happy with them for their performance, build quality and value along with been able to add a separate sub when needed My living arrangements changed and I'm unable to have a separate sub now , the Yamaha soundbar from old sound okay but without a sub it's definitely not as good for sure , also since those older days new sound formats have emerged. Despite the G2 having already an excellent free soundbar and sub (GX ) a demonstration of the B&W wireless speakers from Richard at Cheltenham did sway me in B&W direction. I've read a few reviews and watched a few YouTube channels about the Panarama 3 which are all a bit mixed Again speaking to Karl from KRI Audio visual system installations we decided to let the unit sit on its own rubber feet , which allows the TV to be a little lower to align with my visual field plus the sound bar to make use of its ceiling distance The supplied wall mount wasn't used , it's neat and slots in the back while keeping the bar far enough to allow the up firing speakers to be clear of the TV The sound bar is big and weighty ,it includes everything you'll need along with an EU power Cable if you're planning on using it elsewhere No remotes, you'll need a smart phone and WiFi as once you've set it up everything is done adjustment wise through the app There are on board basic controls for volume which neatly illuminate when your hand nears When I say adjustments! It's treble and bass and that's it on the app, you plug it all in , let it update and it handles the rest. One thing , I've read it doesn't do any DTS and it doesn't, it'll play it as 2 channel pcm which is no where as good sounding as Dolby Any other Dolby format is played well Stereo music sounds really good to me both streamed and via CD , bass is handled nicely as is treble Now Atmos that's where this bar really comes alive , complete different experience and it's phenomenal No sub , no problem at half way it's already room filling loud and those height speakers start pushing sound up and over while the rest handles everything from vocals to a wide range of mids as they bounce around you It really is a different bar when Atmos is played through it Again reading and talking to Richard , B&W have decided this is a one person band built for ease and enjoyment and it is B&W themselves have said the bar is intended to be upgraded firmware wise over time I'm happy this isn't a shallow life product It's Bluetooth enabled so despite not having an external sub there is a possibility I'd imagine if the software allows it , I do hope DTS will be added as the capabilities are all there but more and more media is going down the Dolby road . It's a stunning bar from a British company that makes amazing equipment and I like that If you're a Dolby fan and have mainly Dolby tracks you'll love this , if you've mainly DTS you'll struggle as it'll play them as 2 channel lpcm Play Atmos and you'll be sat there looking for the next reference title to play through it once you're done Richard at Cheltenham highly recommend for the guidance and Karl for his meticulous approach to his work on mounting and set of this sound bar and LG G2 OLED TV

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great service Really good service from Chris and the team with regular updates. I have listened to the Pan 3 for over a week now and I am happy with it. Good for music games and films. I did however chose to turn the base eq up a few notches. Sound is clean and well defined, base presence is sensible, dialogue is clear. Atmos effect could be more pronounced.
