Ikea Symfonisk speakers review: Amazing Sonos sound, no assembly required

Can’t afford Sonos? Try Alexa Multi-Room Audio instead!

Let’s call a spade a spade. Sonos speakers can be very expensive, especially when it comes to multi-room setup. With Sonos One speakers priced at $ 200 and Play:1 costing $ 150, it would be a fair assessment in saying that a multi-room setup is too rich for most people’s blood.
