MODEL C

INTIMATE AND COMPELLING

The Model C offers a more intimate—but no less awe-inspiring—sound experience than the Model D. The formula is simple: take the legendary Model D with its floor-standing dipole speakers, then scale down the footprint and add best-in-breed boundary woofers. The result is an attention-grabbing statement system that sets a new standard for full-bodied bass reproduction.

DIPOLE SPEAKER

The Model C’s compact, floor-standing dipole design emits equal, natural sound from both sides of the cabinet—forward and backward. Thus it produces sound that interacts with the room much like a live musical instrument, creating audio that can’t be compared and a statement that can’t be ignored. 

“Timing is what it is all about. Conventional systems have no control over timing, but Steinway Lyngdorf’s Model C does. As soon as the first sounds were emitted from the Model C loudspeakers, we forgot entirely about the advanced electronics that made it possible. We could give our full attention to the sound of Dvorák and our friends from Vienna.”

Luister

“…superior craftsmanship, high-end design and cutting edge technology to provide the ultimate aural experience.”

FINISHING TOUCHES

The Model C series is a commanding visual presence in any room. Model C speakers and boundary woofers are available in an exquisite range of classic and custom finishes, including the same signature black lacquer finish found on Steinway & Sons pianos. Wood finishes and high-gloss colored lacquers are options to fit any room décor. All finish selections are offered with a choice of gold or chrome accents.

BOUNDARY WOOFERS

A freestanding addition to the Model C speaker, the proprietary boundary woofer concept was developed to manage bass tones and play with the environment, not against it. With the use of boundary woofers, direct sound and reflections from the environment arrive at the listening point at exactly the same time, thus improving sound attack and timing. This makes the Model C series an ideal choice for those who seek the live dipole sound but demand a deeper base for home cinema and bass-heavy music genres.

 

HEAD UNIT

The Model C’s optional head unit stereo processor may well become one of the most arresting and statement-making pieces in your room. Standing just over three feet in height, the head unit is a testament to both craftsmanship and control. It is manufactured to exacting standards; the built-in CD drive, for example, eliminates vibration through a decoupling process that ensures optimal optic reading of the music on the disc.

ROOMPERFECT™

RoomPerfect™ is the most innovative room adaptation technology available, and it holds 55 patents for audio innovations. The concept is pure genius: rather than adapting the room to the sound system with expensive acoustic treatments, Steinway Lyngdorf’s RoomPerfect™ adapts the sound system to the room through a measuring and assessment technology that optimizes sound performance for a specific room. Put simply, RoomPerfect™ will “see” the listening environment and customize sound performance to suit.

 

FULLY DIGITAL SYSTEM

When clarity is at stake, there is no substitute for a fully digital system. The Model C speaker has a built-in fully digital amplifier to eliminate the problem of sound deterioration resulting from a broken signal path in analog-to-digital conversions. The amplifier drives both the Model C speaker and its accompanying boundary woofers to produce an exquisite listening experience—the purest and most true-to-life you’ve ever heard.

 

INTEGRATED SYSTEM APPROACH

With the Model C, you choose the configuration. Enhance your room with the iconic head unit. Or, for a stunning stereo setup, combine the Model C speakers with the SP-1 stereo processor. Alternatively, the Model C speakers can be used in a surround sound system when matched with the Model P200 surround sound processor. As with any Steinway Lyngdorf system, modularity makes the difference.

DELUXE REMOTE CONTROL

The deluxe Steinway Lyngdorf remote control, for Steinway & Sons stereo and surround sound systems, is a statement-making masterpiece of precision machining. This art-quality remote is elegance you can touch, integrity you can feel. It features a rotating wheel crafted from solid, gold-plated, or chrome-plated brass and mounted on precision-machined Swiss bearings to provide intuitive and total command of your system.
