Without much ado, IKEA and Sonos have released a second-generation version of their Symfonisk bookshelf speaker. First noticed by the Dutch publication Tweakers (via The Verge), the new model has a faster processor, more memory and consumes less power when on standby. It also comes with a longer power cord.
However, when we look at the new model alongside its first-generation counterpart, the most visible change is an updated button layout where the volume controls are displayed side by side instead of being separated by the play/pause button as was the case before. .
Sonos updates its speakers in this way from time to time to make them more future-proof. In 2019, for example, it revamped the Sonos One to add Bluetooth LE, a newer processor, and more memory. More recently, it modified the Sonos One SL to add a more efficient wireless radio. If you live in the Netherlands, you can pick up the second-generation Symfonisk bookshelf for €99. We’ve contacted IKEA to find out when the retailer plans to release the speaker in the US.
