Bowers & Wilkins makes incredible-sounding speakers. Fact. And while its original Panorama soundbar is no exception, the home theater package was missing key connectivity in the way of HDMI inputs. The new Panorama 2 packs three-HDMI inputs, finally, and more importantly, 175 earth-shaking watts, into a gorgeous six-speaker array.

The Panorama 2 costs $2200, and doesn't even come with a a subwoofer. Is that too expensive? Probably. Do we care? Absolutely not. We'll resort to crime or trade our afterlife to Mephistopheles just to have this underneath our TV. [Bowers & Wilkins]

I don't care how amazing it sounds; a sound bar cannot touch a properly calibrated 7.1 home theater. Not possible. I imagine this device would be ideal in spaces where that is impractical, but I'd rather invest that $2200 in something a little bit cooler, like a pair of Legacy Whispers.
