British audio brand Bowers & Wilkins has released the Panorama 3. This speaker should provide a stylish all-in-one audio solution for movies, TV, games and music. In their own words, it is the company’s first audio device with Dolby Atmos drivers (50 mm), which is also accompanied by a Dolby Atmos decoder and processor.
Dual Atmos drivers complement the Panorama 3’s forward-facing driver unit setup, and they use a classic left, center and right (LCR) configuration, each with 50mm mid-range woofers paired with completely separate 19mm titanium dome tweeters. Finally, two 100mm woofers are installed in a large bass volume, which the manufacturer claims provides deep, extended bass – eliminating the need for an external subwoofer.
With a maximum power of 400 watts, the amplifier does not have to be only powerful, because of its size is 121 x 14 x 6.5 cm, it should not block your vision if it is placed in front of the TV. It can also be attached to the wall with the included bracket. Thanks to the eArc HDMI connection, the device can provide audio from the TV and other connected sources.For older TVs, there is an optical digital input.
The speaker must also excel in the field of music. It features AirPlay 2 and aptX Adaptive Bluetooth, allowing iOS and Android users to easily stream their favorite music. In addition, Spotify Connect is supported to enable convenient operation. In the Bowers & Wilkins Music app, listeners can access a variety of streaming services, including Deezer, Last.fm, Qobuz, Soundcloud, TIDAL, and TuneIn. The manufacturer said the list of available services will be further expanded this year.
Furthermore, the Panorama 3 has its keys hidden “until it lights up”, so it can be operated without a phone. It also has Amazon Alexa, for voice control while playing music. The amplifier is available immediately: it can be found on the Bowers & Wilkins website, among other things, at a price of 1,000 euros.
