What is the SYMFONISK range?
The first products in the SYMFONISK range are a WiFi bookshelf speaker and an all-new table lamp with WiFi speaker.
Will there be more products in this range?
We can’t comment on future plans or roadmap, however the SYMFONISK family is a fully-functioning part of the Sonos system and a part of both companies’ long-term planning.
When will these products become available?
Products resulting from the collaboration between IKEA and Sonos will be launched starting October 2019.
Where can I buy them?
You will be able to buy SYMFONISK directly from IKEA online and at IKEA stores.
Can I buy them directly from Sonos?
No, the SYMFONISK family of speakers is only available from IKEA.
How will a SYMFONISK speaker differ from a regular Sonos speaker?
The SYMFONISK range are full members of the Sonos family, controlled using the Sonos app, directly from select partner apps like Spotify and Deezer, and also AirPlay 2. The table lamp speaker has the same sound profile as Play:1 and Sonos One, and the bookshelf speaker delivers a lot of value – it will sound great for the many people.
Will SYMFONISK be voice-enabled?
The SYMFONISK speakers do not have integrated microphones and are therefore not voice-enabled directly. Because SYMFONISK is a part of the Sonos system, you will of course be able to control this speaker using other voice enabled products such as a Sonos One, Sonos Beam or other Alexa (and soon Google Assistant) enabled products.
Will a SYMFONISK speaker and a regular Sonos speaker be able to connect with each other?
Absolutely. All SYMFONISK and Sonos speakers will work perfectly together as part of the Sonos sound system – and can be controlled using the Sonos app.
You can even pair-up either speaker in the SYMFONISK range to use as rears in a home theatre setup.
What is the integration with light and when will it be available?
While the collaboration between Sonos and IKEA aims to bring light and sound together, at this point we can’t comment on the scope or the timeline of this integration.
Why doesn't it have Bluetooth?
Rather than operating as a single speaker (tethered to your phone) the Sonos system works over your home’s wireless network to deliver uninterrupted, high-quality streaming music all around the home. You, and anyone connected to your home WiFi network, can control one speaker or many all around the home, using the Sonos app, which gives you access to major streaming services, podcasts, audiobooks, radio and much more.
Can the SYMFONISK speakers be paired to create a stereo pair?
Yes, any two of the same speaker type can be paired to create a stereo pair. They can also be used as rears for a 5.0/5.1 home theatre system.
Will SYMFONISK products receive all Sonos updates and features?
Yes, SYMFONISK products will receive Sonos updates and new features for years to come, unless the feature is tied to specific hardware not included in SYMFONISK (i.e. voice).
