In 2017, Sonos announced a ground-breaking partnership with Ikea that would integrate full-fledged Sonos speakers into everyday furniture. Today, we found out those speakers will be available starting in August of this year.
When they’re released later this year, the Syfonisk series will encapsulate everything that makes Sonos speakers so great – namely, their sound quality and multi-room functionality – in a number of everyday pieces of furniture, like shelves and cabinets.

For those details, much like your typical shopping experience at Ikea, you’re going to have to wait.

Such is Tesla’s reality distortion field. You can’t really blame...
