MODEL D

A FLAGSHIP MASTERPIECE

This flagship masterpiece is designed for the discriminating audio aficionado. Combining state-of-the-art innovations in sound reproduction with finely-crafted aesthetics, the Model D is the first—and best—system of its kind.

FULL RANGE DIPOLE

The Model D is a full range floor-standing dipole speaker which emits sound from both front and back. Unrestricted by the vibrations of conventional cabinets, it interacts with the room like a Steinway & Sons grand piano does, resulting in extremely open and life-like musicality, with no resonance and no coloration.

“No one knows good music like Steinway & Sons, the renowned maker of high-end pianos,” the review states. “And no one knows good sound like Peter Lyngdorf, the veteran Danish audio equipment maker. Combine the two into Steinway Lyngdorf and it’s an audiophile’s dream.”

Robb Report Singapore

“If there was ever a two-channel system that could deliver the audiophile goods in a package that might excite music lovers who’d never go near conventional high-end gear, it’s this one. Easy to use and exciting to listen to, it’s good enough to make Steinway synonymous with ‘music.’ Whether you’re approaching it as a Steinway or as a hi-fi, the Steinway & Sons Model D Music System is the real deal.”

“I could almost smell the brass of the high-hat. After that, we listened to assorted symphonies, Peter Gabriel and New Order. It was an almost schizophrenic experience – I heard background voices, breaths and sounds that I’d never perceived before on other speakers…”

FINISHING TOUCHES

For the most formal presentation, the Model D is available in an iconic black lacquer. Using time-honored techniques, trained craftsmen ensure that the finish of each component attains the highest standard of quality. And to complement any personal style, it’s also available in a wide selection of exquisite custom wood and high-gloss color lacquers.

BUILT BETTER

With more than 170 hours of precision machining behind each speaker, the Model D speaker is a rugged powerhouse of strength and performance. The baffle is milled from solid blocks of aluminum to offer complete stability to the drive units. The result is perfect audio reproduction and completely stabilized synchronicity between signal and sound.

HEAD UNIT

The optional head unit stereo processor stands just over three feet in height, and is a testament to both craftsmanship and control. The distinctive volume wheel, for example, is crafted from 1 kg of gold-plated brass and mounted on precision-machined Swiss bearings.

Weighing 4kg, the integrated CD player’s rigid construction is combined with a 6mm thick loader mechanism and a solid aluminum disc tray, resulting in an utterly reliable and extremely stable unit. The CD drive also features exceptional vibration decoupling to ensure optimal optical reading. It is perfect for all kinds of music, and rockets ahead on powerful bass with impeccable weight and impact.

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.

ROOMPERFECT™

The Steinway & Sons Model D is equipped with RoomPerfect™, the most innovative room adaptation technology available. Rather than adapting the room to the sound system with expensive acoustic treatments, Steinway Lyngdorf’s RoomPerfect™ adapts the sound system to the room.

  • Our years of research have developed a three-dimensional measuring technique and unique target response calculation to analyze and optimize sound performance for a specific room.
  • This technique ensures that the audio system produces pure sound throughout the room, regardless of furniture, room size, loudspeaker location, or listening position.
  • RoomPerfect™ reaches beyond its physical footprint to “see” the listening environment and customize sound performance for each specific room.

 

FULLY DIGITAL SYSTEMS

The Model D is fully digital, meaning it is immune to analog sound degradation, because all signal processing is handled 100% in the digital domain. Unlike analog, which reproduces the sound and inevitably adds its own flavor, fully digital means live sound is replayed completely intact, delivering the sensation of live performance with incredible sound quality.

 

INTEGRATED SYSTEM APPROACH

As with all Steinway & Sons systems, the Model D is greater than the sum of its parts. The Model D works with all other series components to create custom sound systems. Pair it with the iconic head unit, the more discreet SP-1 stereo processor, or with the Model P200 surround sound processor. Steinway Lyngdorf’s integrated system approach delivers solutions for any room and for any need.
