B&W Panorama 2 soundbar
We weren't entirely convinced by the original version of B&W's Panorama soundbar, awarding it an average three stars. Here we have the Mk2 version, with a number of significant improvements, not least the addition (at last!) of HDMI inputs.
There's no faulting the design and build of the Panorama 2 – it's an exceptionally classy looking piece of kit. But it's not cheap at £1650, and this is a market sector that's become incredibly competitive of late.

Here we take a first look at the new model, and in our September 2013 issue of the magazine (on sale August 6th), we test the Panorama 2 against its key rivals, including the Canton DM 90.2, Libratone Lounge, Sonos Playbar & Sub and Yamaha YSP-4300. It promises to be quite a fight.
