Bowers & Wilkins Panorama3 review

 

The Bowers & Wilkins Panorama 3 finally fills in what has been, relatively speaking, a Bowers & Wilkins blind spot. Where wireless speakers, headphones and, of course, traditional loudspeakers are concerned, the company's reputation is basically...

Full-blooded, confident and absorbing movie sound Dextrous and convincing with music Ample control options

Doesn’t quite scale the Dolby Atmos heights No wireless surround option No HDMI passthrough

The Bowers & Wilkins Panorama 3 has much more than most soundbars to recommend it, but you'll need to temper your Dolby Atmos expectations slightly. It delivers all the scale and punch you could want from a one-box soundbar, and is the best bar for...

Bowers & Wilkins Panorama 3 review

 

The Bowers & Wilkins Panorama 3 is a big, fairly expensive Dolby Atmos soundbar that the company has designed to beat the Sonos Arc on at its own game. To help Bowers & Wilkins achieve its aims, the new soundbar has a lot of speaker drivers, a lot of...

Full-scale, precise and engrossing sound with movies Genuinely adept with music Nice selection of control options

Dolby Atmos could be more effective Waiting for multi-room capability Fierce competition

The Panorama 3 is the best soundbar Bowers & Wilkins has made so far, and by extension among the best soundbars you can buy.

B&W Panorama 3 review

 

The Panorama 3, the first Dolby Atmos soundbar from historic audio brand Bowers & Wilkins, confidently strives to simplify immersive home cinema, providing no settings, room calibration or sound modes to tweak beyond a basic two-band EQ and, of course,...

Sleek low profile design Weighty bottom end Self-contained

Voices lack clarity Not a particularly expansive soundstage Tonally inconsistent

The Panorama 3 has a room-filling sound with an impressive low end, but overall it’s a touch uneven, with dialogue that lacks clarity and sparkle

Bowers & Wilkins Panorama 3 review: Raising the bar

 

This single-unit, Dolby Atmos-ready soundbar from B&W promises much. Can it deliver? We've been testing to find out.

Room-filling delivery ; Attractive design and great build quality ; High-quality speakers ; Equally adept with movies and music

No DTS:X support ; Only one HDMI connection ; No expansion options

As a single-unit solution, the Bowers & Wilkins Panorama 3 is adept at delivering a soundstage with scale, solid bass and a good degree of immersion. It handles Dolby Atmos with skill and is also very capable with music. Its delivery is understandably...

Bowers & Wilkins Panorama 3 review: A standout standalone Atmos soundbar

 

An attractive design and impressive sound quality help make the Bowers & Wilkins Panorama 3 one of the best standalone soundbars on market

Premium design and build quality ; Room-filling sound ; Built-in Alexa

Only one HDMI port ; Height effects could be more pronounced ; Currently no multi-room support

The B&W Panorama 3 is an impressive all-in-one soundbar that will appeal to those seeking a premium Atmos option that sounds good across various content types without requiring user adjustment. Movies, music and TV shows all get a big boost in audio...

Bowers & Wilkins Panorama 3 review: wonderfully wide but needs more height

 

A super soundbar with an excellently wide soundstage - but scaling the heights of Dolby Atmos needs more

Impressive bass presence ; Wide, distinct and confident sound ; Does good work with music

Not as Dolby Atmos-y as we’d hoped ; No multi-room functionality (yet) ; Very capable rivals (meaning Sonos Arc)

Wide-screen sound for sure, tall-screen sound only somewhat.

Bowers & Wilkins Panorama 3 review: Home theater power bar

 

Capable of blisteringly loud and precise sound, the Panorama 3 is missing many features found on Dolby Atmos soundbars at the same price.

Exceptionally powerful Elegant design Amazon Alexa built-in Hi-res audio compatibility Strong low-end bass Stirring performances for movies

Not expandable No HDMI inputs No room correction No height channel adjustments

“The Panorama 3 is a visceral performer with a few missing features.”

Bowers & Wilkins Panorama 3 Review

 

The Bowers & Wilkins Panorama 3 is a 2022 release, and it's the first Dolby Atmos soundbar available from the manufacturer. It's a standalone bar with thirteen i...

Built-in Alexa support. Bass and treble adjustments. Gets loud.

Soundstage isn't very wide. Disappointing Atmos performance. No dialogue enhancement mode. Lacks low-bass.

The Bowers & Wilkins Panorama 3 is fair for mixed usage. It's a premium-looking standalone bar that offers Dolby Atmos support, but unfortunately, it doesn't sound as good as it looks. Its default sound is dark and muddy due to its recessed treble and...

Bowers & Wilkins Panorama 3

 

B&W's first Dolby Atmos soundbar packs in a bevy of high-end features, but you can't boost its iffy bass with a subwoofer.

Wide but low-profile design ; AirPlay 2 and Bluetooth with atpX Adaptive support ; Built-in Alexa ; Dynamic, exciting sound

Built-in woofers supply adequate but not deep bass ; Can’t be upgraded with a subwoofer or surround speakers ; Bare minimum of audio adjustments ; No DTS decoder

The all-in-one Bowers & Wilkins Panorama 3 is simple to use and packs high-end features, but at $1,000, its inability to be upgraded is a tough pill to swallow.

Bowers and Wilkins Panorama 3 review: Competitive soundbar with Dolby Atmos

 

Bowers and Wilkins is synonymous with studio-grade loudspeakers and audio systems used by industry professionals, including the sound engineers behind Marvel's Avengers. Most notably, it's the brand of choice within Abbey Road Studios, the home of...

Sleek and minimal design Dolby Atmos spatial audio Capacitive touch screen controls 13 speaker drivers produce a rich sound HDMI eARC future-proofs the soundbar

App pairing process can be quicker 3.1.2 channel benefits smaller rooms than large Volume control can be more intuitive

Overall, the Bowers and Wilkins Panorama 3 is an exceptionally well-designed soundbar, with all the wireless chaps that a cord-cutter would need. At $999, it's the first Dolby Atmos-enabled soundbar from the company and carries an array of speakers...
