Bedroom setup

Hey everyone - I’m trying to see if I can setup some sort of “hacky” solution to get multi-speaker support in my bedroom.

I currently use a Roku on my bedroom TV, and use the line-out to a Play:5 (1st gen) for my sound.  It’s great, no complaints at all, but we’re looking to upgrade our bedside lighting and have been really drawn to the Ikea symfonisk speaker-lamps.

What can I do to have them work in conjunction with the Play:5, which uses line-in for it’s signal from the TV?

I’m well aware that surround isn’t supported, and that this would only be a stereo type setup if I could get it working at all.

Also, no room to install a playbar, or a beam in this scenario - so if that’s your suggestion, I appreciate it but its not viable.


Thanks in advance!

Just set up the pair of lamps as another “room” and then group them with the room that is your PLAY:5. You’ll get the full stereo signal.
