Bowers and Wilkins Panorama 3 soundbar underneath a TV on a stylish AV table

The price of the superb, award-winning Bowers & Wilkins Panorama 3 has crashed to just £399 on Amazon for Black Friday

This Black Friday, Amazon has served up an exceptional deal on the Bowers & Wilkins Panorama 3 soundbar. The price has dropped down to £399 from its recent £499. This is the cheapest that this four-star, Expert Reviews award-winning soundbar has ever been on Amazon – and, in fact, when we first reviewed it in 2022, it retailed for over twice the price at £899.

The Panorama is a 3.1.2-channel soundbar which crams 13 speaker drivers into its sleek body, and it’s powered by a total of 400W Class D amplification. It’s designed as a standalone soundbar, so you don’t have to accommodate a wireless or wired subwoofer in your living room – the subwoofer is integrated directly into the soundbar itself.

This model is the first from Bowers & Wilkins to support Dolby Atmos, the Panorama 3 provides immersive spatial audio with height effects. It also features AirPlay 2 compatibility, making streaming from Apple devices easy, and supports a range of codecs, including high-resolution aptX Adaptive, in addition to SBC and AAC​​.

The soundbar’s design is both sleek and functional, and the integrated subwoofer means that it’s far less obtrusive than multi-box rivals. It includes a wall bracket for mounting, setting it apart from competitors like the Bose Smart Soundbar 900 or Sonos Arc, which do not include this accessory​​. However, it lacks a remote control, instead offering capacitive touch buttons on a hidden panel for basic actions such as volume control and playing or pausing audio. The soundbar can be operated via voice controls or a TV remote via eARC, and the B&W Music app provides integrated access to various streaming services​​.

Connectivity options on the Panorama 3 are minimalist, with a single HDMI eARC socket, Ethernet, and optical ports. It omits fancy features such as room calibration technology or EQ presets in favour of simple bass and treble adjustments​​, and despite the simplicity of this approach, the Panorama 3 provides genuinely impressive audio performance with well-defined stereo separation and robust sound quality for both movies and music​​.

In summary, the Bowers & Wilkins Panorama 3 is excellent value at its £399 Black Friday price. It’s well-suited for those seeking a premium soundbar with Atmos support and room-filling sound in an attractive, single-box package.
