The high-end Bowers & Wilkins Panorama 2 soundbar delivers powerful audio to space-challenged TV and movie enthusiasts, but it also has a few significant flaws.

Extremely expensive. Chesty midrange sound is a little unnatural. No wireless streaming. Poor remote. Uninformative display

Sony HT-CT260. And it's quite a bit wider and deeper, too, by at least several inches. The mirror black, stainless steel skin and black steel mesh grille exude class and sophistication; no one is going to look at this thing and think "cheap."
