IKEA and Sonos will update their common line of Symphonic speakers and add a new format, As previously explained, based on the approval applications found on the FCC (Federal Communications Commission) site, and in view of a very light plague on Instagram, the two brands have new Symphonic products in preparation.
From what we have learned, the “bookshelf speakers” will remain at € 100 in the catalog as we know it today. Perhaps there will be small technical changes, but in any case their design should not evolve specifically.
On the other hand, a new range of lamps with an integrated speaker is planned, and there would be different shapes. The small price reduction confirms the idea of a renewal of the range.
Finally, IKEA and Sonos have plans to launch a brand new Symphonic product that would take the form of a frame or panel, at least a design that is proposed to hang on the wall. This goes in the direction of an integration of a sound system with an element of decoration, as Symphonic lamps already do. One of the FCC documents – indicating where the product name will take place – suggests through a diagram a product with a square or rectangular design that fits this idea of a wall object.
Who says panel or frame, lets hope that different colors are offered, even different materials or patterns? We’ve seen this with today’s speakers for which IKEA has added a choice of red and blue colored trim to change the automatically offered gray and white.
The announcement of these products should not be delayed, it remains to be seen when they will be sold. However, no one should be expected for a few weeks or even a few months.
The edge has also received information confirming that related to the speaker of the bookshelf and the lamp. Then the site invites a brand new speaker to hang on the wall – like a painting – (codenamed “Titan”) with an illustration on the front.
Also note this discussion Reddit, dates from a month ago and where the sound panel was announced. For the lamp, the employee explains that we can change the shade through a more modular design. And finally, a support will be provided for the bookshelf speaker to install it on the ground.
