Steinway Lyngdorf News
Steinway Lyngdorf launches the new Model LS Concert at CEDIA Expo 2012. The new speaker combines technologies from two of Steinway Lyngdorf's most popular speakers: the dipole technology from the flagship Model D and the line source technology from the Model LS. Created as an open-baffle dipole line source, the Model LS Concert speaker provides the ultimate in audio experiences.
Without conventional cabinets, the Model LS Concert open-baffle speaker interacts with the room much as a musical instrument would, resulting in extremely open and life-like musicality. At the same time the line source construction allows sound to propagate over long distances. In practice, it is almost impossible to detect any change in volume level and audio quality from the front to the rear of the room.
"The Model LS Concert started out as a sketch in my notebook and was something I dreamt about creating for several years. The idea of combining a dipole speaker with the line source principle would allow me to create not only a truly unique and immensely powerful speaker, but something that aesthetically fills the room with its physical presence." stated Steinway Lyngdorf founder, Peter Lyngdorf.
"I am happy to say that even before the official launch, we have received extremely positive responses from clients and have already installed the first systems, underlining our belief that sound delivered in its purest form is always in demand."
The Model LS Concert is designed so it can be part of a powerful stereo system or a multi-channel system by combining the Model LS Concert speakers with Steinway Lyngdorf's range of sound processors, amplifiers and other speaker collections. As always, every Steinway Lyngdorf system benefits from the combination of proprietary RoomPerfect™ technology and fully digital amplification allowing pure sound to be realized perfectly in acoustically imperfect real-world environments.
The Model LS Concert speaker starts at $86,000 with full stereo set-up beginning at $228,000 which includes an SP-1 Processor, Model A1 Amplifiers, and Model LS Boundary Woofers. The Model LS Concert will be available through Steinway Lyngdorf's network of selected partners worldwide beginning September 10, 2012. Demonstrations are available at CEDIA Expo 2012 in the Denver Room at the Marriott Hotel.
The open-baffle design allows one to see the components that make the Model LS Concert so remarkable: Fifteen 5¼ mid-range drivers consisting of extremely lightweight and stiff aluminum, made more rigid through a special deep anodizing treatment and features a powerful neodymium magnet system. The end result is a midrange driver with a extremely fast time response.
The Model LS Concert also features eight AMT (Air Motion Technology) tweeters. The specially-designed tweeter features an ultra-thin, folded Kapton diaphragm with a large surface area. It combines the advantages of a dome tweeter with those of a ribbon tweeter, resulting in higher power handling and very accurate detail reproduction.
