Although both devices are priced within the same affordable range that is commonly found in Ikea products, they pack the high quality of any other Sonos speaker.

The lamp and the bookshelf have about the same audio quality as the Sonos Play One speaker, according to Engadget.

They are both full of two digital amplifiers, a tweeter and a mid-woofer on the inside.

Unlike other connected speakers, the Symfonisk line is intended to fit in with your other decor so that users can & # 39; furnish with sound & # 39 ;.

& # 39; We knew from the outset that we wanted to challenge traditional high-tech aesthetics & # 39 ;, said Iina Vuorivirta, one of SYMFONISK lamp-speaker designers at IKEA in Sweden, & # 39; in a statement.

& # 39; The lamp-speaker comes in part from the idea of ​​the fireplace – a single piece that spreads both warm light and sound. & # 39;

Both the lamp and the bookshelf are available in black or white.

The bookshelf can be used in various ways. It can be used as a bookend, placed on either side of a stack of books or mounted on the wall so that users can place items on top.

Once connected to Wi-Fi, users can operate a speaker with the Sonos app.

Although they don't have a built-in voice assistant, users can control them with Siri, because the speakers both support AirPlay 2.

However, Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant users are still unlucky.

Both devices can be connected to an existing Sonos audio installation, such as the Playbase, Playbar or Sonos Beam.

It is also not the first time that Ikea has entered the connected furniture market.

Previously, the Swedish household goods company released wireless charging blocks, as well as furniture equipped with wireless charging.
