Support for Ikea symfonisk

Ikea has just released 2 new speakers in cooperation with Sonos.
https://www.sonos.com/en-gb/symfonisk-by-sonos-and-ikea

I have just picked up the square one. Is it possible to add support for this in the plugin?

Hmmm
When I first added it, I got a lot of errors. That is when I posted the request for it to be supported. But when I now try to enable com again it seams to be working fine.
I have configured it as play3.

Perhaps it just needed some server restarts to work properly?

Lol. I ordered one, cancelled it upon seeing this post, and re-ordered it.

Re: Support for Ikea symfonisk

I'm curious how good the units sound. The Sonos units are pricey, but they do sound pretty good for the money.

I came here to drink milk and kick ass....and I've just finished my milk.

Well sound quality is always very subjective... But as the owner of play1, play3, play5 and a b&w setup I think they sound really good. And I love the practical aspect of replacing 2 CD players in the kids room with these units

Re: Support for Ikea symfonisk

Thanks -- I'm glad to hear that they sound good. Given their US$100 price tag, there's little risk I suppose!

Re: Support for Ikea symfonisk

I am not sure if the error below is related to the new sonos devices. But anyone that know what the cause might be?

Re: Support for Ikea symfonisk

I also purchased a pair of the new IKEA/Sonos bookshelf speakers recently and see the same errors. Even worse, the plugin also seems to cause stability problems with the speakers maintaining a wi-fi connection which stops when I disable it. My Sonos Connect device doesn't seem to have problems but, of course, it's wired ethernet. For me, the Sonos plugin is unusable unless there is some settings that I have not tried.

To those who are considering a purchase, I can recommend them for surrounds or the casual bathroom/kitchen niche speaker for which they are marketed.

To clarify- are the Ikea speakers affecting connectivity of OTHER sonos speakers in your setup? That’s my read, and also unfortunately a deal breaker if so.

(Full disclosure my symfonbork is still sitting in my shop and I have yet to experiment with it)

Re: Support for Ikea symfonisk

No, all of my Ikea/Sonos speakers work fine amongst themselves with the hard-wired Sonos Connect. I'm still debugging the setup but perhaps the wi-fi traffic incurred with the plugin is causing the problems. I'll post more of my findings as I tinker with the plugin configuration and wi-fi settings.
