A few years ago, IKEA and Sonos entered into a partnership that resulted in speakers on Symfonisk’s bookshelves. For those unfamiliar, these are basically speakers made by Sonos, but they feature an IKEA design that’s meant to help integrate them into the living room or bedroom so they don’t seem out of place.
It’s been a few years since the launch of the speakers, but the two companies seem to have decided it was time for an update, as spotted by Dutch website Tweakers. This has resulted in the launch of a new version of the Symfonisk loudspeaker that now appears branded slightly updated, but also comes with an upgraded processor under the hood, more memory, better power efficiency, and a longer power cable that gives users more flexibility in its placement.
It can also be paired with older Symfonisk speakers if you’re looking to create a stereo effect. Otherwise, the rest of the amplifier’s hardware will remain the same, meaning it will continue to use 2.4GHz and 5GHz WiFi for wireless connectivity and streaming, along with AirPlay 2 support for Apple users.
At the moment, it appears to be only available in the Netherlands where they are priced at €100 each. There’s no word on when it might launch in other markets, but since current models are available in different parts of the world, we don’t see why that might be different.
