In April, someone found clues about the new Symfonisk from IKEA and Sonos on the FCC website. According to the description in the information at the time, this would be a hidden speaker that could be displayed like a “painting.” And not long ago,The Verge I also found the product page of Symfonisk “Picture Frame Wi-Fi Speaker” on the IKEA official website. Although the page has now been taken down, the product information has been completely exposed.

Although it is called a “picture frame”, its “replaceable front” does not seem to be used to display your own physical or digital images. It is estimated that the factory It will provide a limited number of options for users to choose from. The speaker itself supports AirPlay 2, and users can easily use it to play music on Apple devices. At the same time, Symfonisk also supports Spotify Connect, multiple devices can also be grouped together and then unified control in the Sonos app.
