Summary: This unit has great sound but not outstanding lower bass. You need to hook up a sub woofer. Here is the issue. Opened the box and all I got was a two page 1st. grade drawing of installation NO INSTRUCTIONS WHATSOEVER. OK........no big deal it was a simple set up. Remote looks like an oval bug. Totally not intuitive unless your understand British symbols. Nothing of on screen information and it is hooked up to HDMI correctly. Get on Bowers and Wilkens website.
Pricey so be patient when you buy and try to get the best price

Summary: Sounbar is excellent but I wish I could get more volume out of it. It's loud but when my wife is gone I like to feel the sound and if it would pack a little more punch I would have given this soundbar a 5
Summary: I am both surprised and pleased by the quality of the sound that comes from this B&W product. B&W has always had a top drawer reputation, but could they really make a sound bar that has ooomph as well as the ability to project sound for surround sound-like perception? Answer is clearly yes. I added a sub-woofer to my system, but the amount of bass that comes out of the box itself is quite satisfying. This is clearly another case of you get what you pay for.
No frills, reliable sound from a well-respected company...

Summary: To begin, I am a bit of an audiophile, ranging from the Mark Levinson sound system in my car -- probably one of the best audio systems I've heard, aside from home high end electrostatic MartinLogan electrostatic speakers and B&W's flagship speakers. Having just got the chance to demo this Panorama system in an A/V store nearby, this is a really solid product. The cabinet (casing) on the unit is rock solid, it really is well crafted.
Summary: Just got B&W Panorama, it makes you feel as if you are actually there, I mean imagine you are actually sitting in stadium and watching soccer, how would that sound? This is more real than too much separation of sound that you get from separate 5 or seven speakers, frankly speaking I was not sure to buy these because of “NO” HDMI or not too much separation of sound that you get from set of separate speakers, but now I realize this amazingly fill up your room with sound...
Pros: Best Sound, cant belive its just one sound bar
Summary: 2 Jahre bin ich um die B&W herum geschlichen. Immer schwankend zwischen bestellen und "aaaach, viel zu teuer"... Als ich sah, dass sie an ein paar Tagen als Angebot von 1999,- auf 1399,- herunter gesetzt wurde, musste ich einfach zuschlagen. Mein Freund, der kein Fan von meiner "...was teuer ist, muss auch gut sein..."-Mentalität ist, überredete mich, gleichzeitig eine günstige Soundbar von Yamaha (YAS 101 7.1 Front Surround System) zu bestellen. Sollte er ruhig: ..
Summary: Hatte bisher die Geräte Yamaha YSP 5100; Canton DM 8; Yamaha YAS 101; und die aktuellen: Yamaha YSP 1400 und Canton DM 50. Keine der vorgenannten Geräte hat im Surround-Sound überzeugt und so stellte sich die Frage ob es überhaupt eine Soundbar (Sounddeck) gibt die hier annähernd eine Alternative zu klassischen Anlagen darstellt. Also die derzeit teuerste geordert - Lieferung via Amazon - wie immer - vorbildlich.
