It's better than panorama 2? I currently have that which I find great for movies but not so good with music. Seems to lack the left right stereo sound. Maybe to do with having 1 tweeter in centre. Would you recommend soundstage for music. Also is it better with movies as panorama 2 seems to throw surround sound quite well in my living room with dolby 5.1This opinion is understandable but misguided. I have enjoyed high-end AV for almost 20 years, owning speakers made by Energy (when they were still an independent company), PSB, and Dynaudio, separates by Anthem and Parasound, a number of SVS cylinder and box subwoofers, and even a monster Fathom 113 sub by JL Audio that was nearly the size of a washing machine, but sometimes our circumstances change and we have to make compromises. If we are being honest, if you're shopping for a sound bar, you are making compromises. Most of the time, those compromises have to do with simplicity, decluttering, aesthetics, and the all important wife approval factor. The B & O stage masterfully checks all those boxes and is frankly one of the best and most enjoyable AV purchases I've ever made with exceptional depth, clarity, and above all musicality. It also has impressive low end extension with a healthy SPL down to 20 Hz. It will not shake the walls and rattle the glass like a great cylinder sub, but it definitely sounds like there's a sealed 8 inch sub somewhere in the room. In my opinion, it sounds better and has richer bass than both the B & W panorama 2 with PVD1 subwoofer that I owned for many years and the B & W Formation sound bar and bass that I briefly owned before settling on the stage. Bottom line: if you're in the market for a sound bar and you value clarity, musicality, and a killer aesthetic, you should at least audition the B & O stage.
