Steinway & Sons Model A Room-Friendly Loudspeaker Launched
Steinway Lyngdorf announces the new Steinway & Sons Model A loudspeaker, designed to be placed against a wall.
The Steinway & Sons Model A loudspeaker looks as elegant as one would expect from the combination of Steinway and Lyngdorf. However, where the Model D will undoubtedly dominate any room, given both its dimensions and requirement for space around its dipole design, the slender Model A should prove to be more room-friendly for less expansive environments. Indeed, Steinway Lyngdorf mentions apartments, penthouses, and even yachts!
With a cabinet measuring just 270 mm deep, the Model A is still brimming with the latest tech. Here you will find Steinway Lyngdorf’s signature Kapton foil Air Motion Transformer tweeter and a dedicated 165mm anodized aluminium cone midrange driver partnered with a pair of 30cm woofers.
We are informed that this team of drivers is good for 25Hz-22kHz (-3 dB) from the closed cabinet enclosure constructed from aluminium and MDF with a steel base. That build has the Steinway & Sons Model A tipping the scales at 76kg.
Naturally, the speaker sports black piano finish side panels (white and custom colours can be requested) with black strings and matte gold accents. As the Model A only stands at 1150mm tall, we were told to also note the matte gold embellishment on the top of the speaker.
The Model A loudspeaker is designed and assembled by hand in Denmark. Ensuring it sounds as it should by connecting them to a Steinway Lyngdorf stereo processor and a digital amplifier, the system also incorporates Steinway Lyngdorf’s RoomPerfect technology.
RoomPerfect acoustically calibrates the speaker to the room acoustics, always ensuring the very best sound experience for every customer in any room.
The Steinway & Sons Model A will be available in Q2 2022, with pricing in the region of €22,000 plus tax (depending on the country) for the speakers.
However, as the company has an integrated system approach, we were told in the briefing that they would have to consider the associated electronics before giving a total cost. To this end, they suggest the Steinway & Sons A1 or A2 digital power amplifiers as an integral part of the system, with the Steinway & Sons stereo or surround processors performing the active crossover in the digital domain.
