Ikea Sonos Symfonisk speaker set for August launch

Much anticipated Trådfri compatible range integrates into your furniture

Ikea Sonos Symfonisk launching in August

Back in June, Sonos and Ikea revealed the first speaker from their 'future home sound' collaboration - the Symfonisk. And now we've got a launch date... August 2019.

We've only see prototypes for now, but the idea of the Symfonisk is that it will fit in and around Ikea furniture, such as being slotted into the Billy bookcase or secured under a Metod kitchen cabinet.

There's no official word yet as to whether the range will boast Alexa or even Google Assistant integrations but we do know that it is designed to play nicely with Ikea's existing smart home kit from the Trådfri range - which includes smart bulbs, plugs and smart blinds too now.

In terms of audio quality - and also pricing - we're told that it will sit below the Sonos One and Play:1; so will be Sonos' most affordable speaker to date.

But it will have all the functionality of a regular Sonos - and will be able to join an existing setup of wireless, multi-room Sonos speakers. It'll be controlled from the Sonos app and if it's being treated as a Sonos speaker in all but name.

Both Ikea and Sonos say this will be a long term partnership, not a one-off product, so we can expect to see a whole range hitting the furniture megastores in the coming years.
