They look and sound like the company's classic wired speakers, such as the 705 S2 and 805 D3.

British audio company Bowers & Wilkins which was acquired by U.S. technology Company EVA Automation has rolled out a Sonos competitor that is 24bit and capable of delivering 96kHz sample-rate streaming.

Analysts are tipping that the Bowers and Wilkins technology will seriously hurt Sonos as it not only delivers superior sound, but all five pieces can work independently or together in a multi-room experience via a mesh networking system co-developed by EVA Automation, the parent company of Bowers & Wilkins.

Bowers & Wilkins calls the Formation Duo, a pair of bookshelf or stand-mount speakers, its "concept auto". On-boarding and device configuration are executed by the Formation smartphone app (iOS/Android) with music streaming itself falling to third-party solutions: Airplay 2, Spotify Connect, aptX HD Bluetooth and Roon Ready, the latter initially the only route for hi-res audio streaming (via its internalised Qobuz and Tidal).

The Formation Wedge has a unique, 120-degree elliptical shape which makes its design really stand out.

The soundbar, logically called the Formation Bar, contains three 25mm tweeters and six 65mm woofers for bass and mid-range sound.

The Formation Audio is based on Bowers & Wilkins' patented Formation Wireless Technology.
