Is it really, the bookshelf speaker definitely doesn't sounds as good as the Play 1s

The controller board and speakers are identical. Obviously the chassis is different which could make a difference. The Ikea ones are a good alternative on paper.

i think you've made that up. The play 1 is much wider than the Symsonisk so theres no way the main speaker from the play 1 would fit in it.

well the sonos play 1 has a width of 12 cms and from the below pic you can see the play 1 is all speaker

the Symfonsik is only 10 cms wide as per the ikea website

Symfonisk
so theres no actual way the speak would fit into it?

edit, the tweeter might be the same and the board inside but the speak isnt and thats what makes your sound?

The speaker under the mesh on the Play:1 is smaller than its width. It’s not ‘all speak’. There’s just a big cone on the front underneath the mesh. And a small cone.

I purchased the Symfonisk speaker and made a unboxing and demo video of it,anyone who wants to see it feel free to PM me
Does anyone know if this is Gen1 or Gen2?
Thanks!

That only applies to the Sonos One speaker

It's a play1. There isn't a gen 1 and 2.
Excellent price, heat added

What is wrong with? he said the internals are the same, so what if the speaker is 2cm smaller. Stop being argumentative.

Unless you have another device with airplay 2 I use my Sonos Sound Bar to stream to my Play 1.

Yes, I agree, I’ve listened to them both and the play 1 is much much better.

I have both so don't have a horse in this race, for an extra £20 I would go for a play 1. At £100 Vs £150 it's a bit more of a difficult decision.

Have to second this. The first gen IKEA Sonos speakers are a miss. Interesting designs but the sound is poor. Get yourself a proper Sonos for a few quid more.

Thanks for the tip, nice it has Airplay 2 but with no Bluetooth or voice assistant to control playback I probably won't get it.

What do you mean? Can't you use airplay to stream from your iphone? I'm looking to listen to Spotify (free) with this speaker. Can someone confirm if they are good for that?

I have a Sonos One Gen 2 and I’m doing it right this second from my iPhone. Perhaps I am misunderstanding?

Yes you can use it with Spotify but you can no longer stream music that is held on your iDevice to the speaker

No, it’s because the Sonos One SL is the direct replacement for the Play:1 which is being retired (I believe)

Yes you can use Spotify connect so Spotify will work. But this sonos speaker does not support airplay.

Edit : I’m not actually sure Spotify free supports Spotify connect (only premium accounts do maybe?) so if that’s the case it won’t work for you. You’ll need one of their airplay speakers (pretty much any of the others).
