IKEA and Sonos formed a relationship a few years ago that culminated in the Symfonisk bookshelf speakers. For those unfamiliar, they are Sonos speakers with an IKEA design to assist them mix in with one’s living room or bedroom and not look out of place.
The speakers have been around for a while, but it appears that both firms felt it was time for an update, according to Dutch website Tweakers. This has resulted in the release of a new version of the Symfonisk speakers, which features a slightly revised design as well as an upgraded processor, additional memory, improved power efficiency, and a longer power connection to provide consumers more placement options.
If you want to create a stereo effect, you can link it with older Symfonisk speakers. The rest of the speaker’s hardware will remain same, which means it will continue to use 2.4GHz and 5GHz WiFi for wireless connectivity and streaming, as well as support for Apple’s AirPlay 2.
For the time being, it appears to be exclusively accessible in the Netherlands, where it costs 100 euros per unit. There’s no indication on when it’ll be available in other areas, but given that current versions are sold in many countries, we don’t see why this would be any different.
