Engadget Review

The IKEA SYMFONISK bookshelf speakers may look blocky but it has a versatile design that fits both horizontally and vertically in most bookcases. With the help of optional hardware, it can even be used as a floating shelf. On its own, it doesn’t sound as good as other Sonos speakers, but if you use it as an additional speaker in an existing multi-room audio setup, it works really well. It’s also the cheapest Sonos speaker by far at only $99 each.
