The option helps expand your entire home wireless sound system

Swedish home furnishing giant Ikea has teamed up with Sonos to create two new multi-room wireless models, each of which also functions as furniture. One of the two, the $99 Symfonisk WiFi Bookshelf Speaker can be used as a wall shelf. The speaker delivers a powerful audio punch for the price, including some impressive bass depth. It can also be incorporated into existing Sonos systems, making it the least expensive Sonos-compatible speaker available.

Available in black or white, the bookshelf speaker is an unassuming model and doesn’t need to be installed as a shelf. It works just fine on a tabletop and can sit horizontally or vertically. If you choose to mount it on a wall, you need to buy a Symfonisk hook separately. The speaker can also be mounted on Ikea’sKungsfor kitchen rail system or its Fintorp Rail.
The front face of the speaker is covered by cloth grille, a rough tweed that pairs nicely with the eggshell finish of the plastic exterior Beneath the grille, there’s a single 1.25-inch tweeter and a 2.75-inch midrange driver, each powered by its own Class-D digital amplifier. The speaker supports voice control through Alexa and Google Assistant, but not it’s own like the Sonos One and Sonos Beam.


On tracks with intense sub-bass content, the speaker delivers impressive bass depth. At top volumes, you may run into some distortion, which isn’t surprising from a $100 speaker. At slightly lower volume levels, the bass depth is impressive and clean. A track with less deep bass in the mix will give you a better sense of the speaker’s general sound signature. Drums on tracks that sound overly thunderous on bass-forward speakers, find a slightly boosted depth in this bookshelf speaker but sound natural for the most part.
