Serious hardware issuesPeter C.Please do not purchase this product. I purchased two Symfonisk picture frames to work in a surround setup with a Sonos arc. This set up worked well for the first few months but over the past 2 months (and coincidentally just outside the 180 days), the Symfonisk picture frame speaker that was setup to be the rear right speaker simply cannot keep a stable connection to the internet. The frame constantly drops from my system and even if it reconnects after a power cycling, the frame will drop off eventually (anywhere between 30 seconds to an hour). I know this isn’t an issue with my system since I own at least 20 Sonos products and this is the only one that is having these issues. Furthermore, I called IKEA customer service to discuss about options and was basically rudely told that I’m out of luck as the product was 2 months past the 180 day exchange/warranty. Do not waste your time and money on this clearly faulty product or with IKEA’s atrocious customer service.
Didn't want to stay connectedGINA W.The sound is great. The hanging picture concept is great. It's just hit or miss on if it wants to stay connected to play the music. Very disappointed.
Love it. Great sound. Great lookHang P.Set up easy, sounds great. Love that it’s Sonos and I can control from app. Don’t hesitate. Buy it. We’re waiting to see the styles for the Dino’s lamps. Hoping to add that to our system.
Extremely happy with purchase. LooksMariaExtremely happy with purchase. Looks great on the wall and sounds better than brand name 2K speakers
Needs better softwareAlvin D.The speaker has amazing sound quality, the wall frame concept is good. The only thing thats trash is connecting via wifi, it constantly needs to fix connection to internet on the app you have to go through so many mental gymnastics to play the darn thing, if you dont have a open network with no password it will give you problems everytime you want to play music. The company needs to fix the software to have easy connection via wifi without all the problems.
great buy amazing sounderic w.I own several Sonos speakers form the Sonos One to the Sonos Fives. I was a little skeptical about The Ikea/Sonos partnership and quality of the sound and speakers. This Ikea Symfonisk Picture Frame speaker threw me for a surprise. Not only do they sound as good a Sonos One but they add a nice height presence when hung on a wall. Now my living room is filled with sound. Setup was quick and easy and you can even pair 2 of these speakers as a stereo pair which I did. I also ordered a 2nd pair of speakers to add to other walls. You can daisy chain these speakers which I find will make a great option and plan on doing in the future. They are worth every penny.
Medium Volume; Couldn't use from Windows 11 PCWILLIAM S.I spent 2 days trying to get this to work with Windows 11 PC using help and searches. No success. Using from my phone, the highest volume was barely OK for one room.
Cool speakerKaseySpeaker sounds great. Connecting is effortless. Nice addition to my home.
Great SurroundKRISTAI used 2 of these for rear surround speakers and they are absolutely amazing. They sound great, look nice in the space, easy to install, and very easy to set up on the Sonos App.
Sadly doesn’t workAdamReally love the idea of this & was relatively simple to set up but once it was going we found it’s not going to work for our purposes. We wanted to use it primarily for our tv/movie sound & constantly had to restart the speaker because it would continuously drop out/stop playing. After reading multiple other reviews stating the same issue we’re unfortunately going to have to return it. 2 stars because the sound was good when it does work.
Great Wall SpeakerMICHAELGreat wall speaker from Sonos. The sound quality is comparable if not better than my Sonos Play 1’s. Easy to set up Wi-Fi. However, I wish it had Bluetooth features. Great buy at $169.00.
Amazing sound.KOKHVITBeautiful speaker and anazing sound.
Blends inDouglasMost people can’t find it living room.
Wanted a Bluetooth speaker forSarahWanted a Bluetooth speaker for our condo guests to use. You have to download an app first. Not multi-user friendly for us. Sound is great just not useful for what we bought it for.
Very good sound for the price.RALPH R.For the price, I haven't seen/heard anything that can compete. Are there better sounding speakers? Of course, but they have prices that don't sound so good. I bought one of these and a pair of the bookshelf units. I took them home, set them up, and I have since purchased a second picture frame and another bookshelf unit for the garage. I think there will be SYMFONISK units in every room by the end of summer.
If you have an iPhone, you can "tune" the speaker to the room. The difference is small, but definitely better.
Then Ikea announced the new panels. I missed "Starry Night" and "Mona Lisa" but have snagged a Giraffe and will have the Jaguar when it's back in stock. I already had several of the others, and it's fun to change them out.
I've seen a few folks that say the setup is difficult but I did not find that to be the case. I followed the instructions from the app on my phone and it all worked.
TLDR; Just buy it.
Terrific speakerSusanThe sound quality is amazing!!!
I love itZozanI love it
Not easily usable with SonosJosh H.I bought and then attempted to use with my existing soundbar/sub. After connected, when I change the volume on the TV the picture frame remains unchanged. I contacted Sonos and they said I would have to manually change at speaker or from my phone. Who is going to do that everytime you change the TV volume? I live 4 hrs from the store, this thing is going in the trash.
Awesome!AshleyGreat product! Unbelievable sound quality, looks really good, easy to mount. Very satisfied!
