The B&W Wireless Formation Speakers eg Soundbar, subwoofer and rear speakers doesn’t even do high definition soundtracks eg Master Audio and Dolby True HD - why would anyone buy that? No HDMI input to I think. Mind you B&W have always be slow when it comes to soundbar technology.Charging a few thousand pounds for a wireless speaker system and then expecting the customer to still fork out a few hundred pounds annually for Roon to be able to operate it fully is just folly of the highest order. I love B&W speakers but this is outrageous.
Naim, Denon, Sonos etc supply great apps, so if B&W want to play in this game they better pull finger.
Which speakers do you have at present? B&W could easily start producing stylish speakers again to be honest there is not much wrong with them at present and a lot of customers prefer big boxes because they should produce better sound. They still review great, they have loads of new subs which look great! We are just pointing out slight niggles we have about them. B&W brand is still very strong nothing has gone down hill.So I will preface this by saying I would consider myself a somewhat audio novice. That being said, I have always been a fan of B&W speakers; I have had different models throughout the past 15 years or so (nothing on the high end of their offerings). With all of the changes going on, I am wondering if people here could make some recommendation on alternative options in the same quality range of B&W? Thank you in advance.
