The Bowers & Wilkins Home app is required to connect your Formation Wedge to your home network and to establish connection with other Formation products in your home. The Bowers & Wilkins Home app also provides some control and configuration functions during use. Before you begin your Formation Wedge installation please download and install the Bowers & Wilkins Home app on your iOS or Android device. The Bowers & Wilkins Home app requires iOS V11.4 or later, or Android V8.1 or later. Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi services must be enabled on your iOS or Android device. You will also need to know your Wi-Fi network password.

Note: Location Services must be enabled on Android devices during the Formation setup process. This is because Formation products use a low power form of Bluetooth (BT-LE) for service communication which on Android devices is only switched on when Location Services are enabled. Bowers & Wilkins do not use any location services data for marketing purposes.

WHAT SETS FORMATION APART?

Most multiroom audio systems start with one major disadvantage: the home Wi-Fi network. Convenient though it may seem, just consider all the devices fighting for a share of its bandwidth, from computer and tablets to TVs, lighting, security and heating systems and even smart voice control units. That’s why Formation is different: it sets up a dedicated Formation®Wireless Technology ‘mesh’ network, completely separate from existing Wi-Fi systems, and using intelligent channel-switching to maintain an ideal connection despite any outside interference. All of that just happens automatically when you start plugging in Formation products, allowing high-resolution sound, with speakers perfectly synchronised for a true whole-house hi-fi experience.

WHY COMPROMISE?

Having your music available to you in any room of your house shouldn’t mean trading sound quality for convenience. That’s why the ability to play 96kHz/24-bit high-resolution audio – way beyond CD quality – was a prime design requirement for Formation® Suite. Thanks to fast, high-capacity Formation® Wireless Technology and the use of optimised Bowers & Wilkins drive units with dedicated amplification, Formation is able to deliver audiophile sound quality without wires. This means you can enjoy every nuance of high-resolution sound and all the dynamics and excitement of your favourite music, without the need to settle for lower sound quality when you’re away from your main audio system. Formation delivers all of the music that matters to you, everywhere – wirelessly.

*Formation products create a mesh network. Each product in this network dynamically chooses the optimal path to route audio-data between products, in order to ensure a robust streaming experience. We have therefore certified Formation products for High Network Availability (HiNA) and conform to the appropriate power requirements set out in the ERP directive.
