Swedish furniture retailer Ikea has announced that its highly anticipated Symfonisk series of Sonos speakers will be debuted this April.
The speakers, which will be unveiled in a Milan exhibition, promise to integrate the high sound quality and multi-room functionality of Sonos speakers with everyday pieces of furniture, like shelves and cabinets.
When the speakers were first announced, Ikea debuted a number of prototypes, including a few speakers that were built directly into shelves, but said that those weren’t final products.
Roll on April
A video released on the Ikea newsroom teases the new Symfonisk speakers, showing a revolving room with the speakers themselves pixelated.
Although we can’t make out any of the finer details, it looks as though the range could include a wall-mounted speaker and a smaller bookshelf-style speaker – of course, we can’t be sure until we see the speakers in their un-pixelated form.
We also don’t know how much the speakers will cost, but this will hopefully be announced at the unveiling in April – here’s hoping they don’t cost much more than the Lack side table you bought as a student.
