The quality of something is not just one part; the sum of all parts should go into the final equation and in the case of the Bowers & Wilkins Panorama 2 sound bar, this is certainly true.
From the ease of connectivity - simply plug it in via one of the three HDMI inputs and one HDMI output - to the good looks, and of course the quality of sound, the Panorama has it all and thus deserves this award.
Innovation is also involved and the clever proximity sensor which fades to black, blending in with the unit's fascia, comes to life when you wave you hand, giving instant access to the Panorama 2's control menus.
And of course, the company that puts the speakers into Abbey Road Studios and Skywalker Sound is bound to understand sound quality, and this shines through in the immersive, high-quality sound the Panorama 2 delivers.
