Engadget Review

The IKEA SYMFONISK lamp functions as both a light source and a Sonos-powered speaker. The sound quality is comparable with Sonos’s own Play:1. On the downside, you’ll need to get a smart bulb in order to dim the lights and control them remotely, and there’s no smart assistant on board. But overall, the lamp’s stylish design, affordable price point and stellar audio, makes this the better of the two debut SYMFONISK devices.

First off, I actually like the design. It's a little on the ugly side but overall...read more
