In the beginning of the year, we announced the second HDMI 2.1 roll-out for our remaining processor program, Lyngdorf MP-40, Steinway & Sons P100 and Steinway & Sons Head Unit to start second half of 2021.

Since then, we have seen dramatic shortages of components, a situation we have done our utmost to manage the best way to avoid long lead times in our processor program. However, this means we have to postpone the second roll-out of the processors until 2022. A specific time cannot yet be stated, as the schedule is dependent on the component situation at that time.

Once launched, we will of course offer an upgrade program similar to the program we offered when we launched the first roll-out for Lyngdorf MP-60 and Steinway & Sons P300 processors.

Martin Dew from Home Theater Forum has visited our UK partner, Gecko Home Cinema, where he has compared a Steinway Lyngdorf system with a Lyngdorf Audio system. The goal was not necessarily to identify the finest home theater, but to pinpoint the audio characteristics.

Below, you can read his final thoughts, and at the bottom of the page you can find a link to the whole comparison.

“Okay, if money were no object, I would order a Steinway integrated system in a shot. Done. That was easy. It is ultra-cool to have that name embossed on the same multi-stage gloss lacquer used for the company’s legendary pianos. In terms of performance, you just get the feeling with the Steinway gear that there is nothing standing between you and the source…and I mean nothing. If that gives them a slight edge over Lyngdorf, then so be it, but both systems are rock solid and phenomenal in execution.

 

I will not pretend that there is anything attractive about the price of these systems, but we all need tech we can dream about. It may be that the wizardry found in the RoomPerfect calibration system will trickle down into more affordable components one day. In the meantime, Lyngdorf Audio is making some of the magic available to less well-heeled clients in the form of the MP- processors and SDA- amps. If you are planning to spend $10k on a projector, for example, then you should definitely be thinking about Lyngdorf for your electronics.

 

Finally, I so appreciate what Steinway Lyngdorf is doing for the audio community. Their products have nothing short of made me re-evaluate what it is I love about music and movies. And that’s saying something.”

P100 HDMI 2.1

Following the release of HDMI 2.1 for its flagship models, Lyngdorf MP-60 2.1 and Steinway & Sons P300 2.1 (availability February 2021), Steinway Lyngdorf is now moving on to HDMI 2.1 for the remaining processors. The second HDMI 2.1 roll-out includes the following models: Lyngdorf MP-40, Steinway & Sons P100, and Steinway & Sons Head Unit.

Steinway Lyngdorf announces that the work will begin on the 8K-ready HDMI 2.1 board updates for release during the second half of 2021.

Continuing Steinway Lyngdorf’s technology approach to the AV market, the company will still use INVECAS (meanwhile acquired by Analog Device) chips in the new solutions. Following the 2017 acquisition of Lattice Semiconductor Corporation’s HDMI design team and Simplay Labs’ subsidiary, which oversees standards compliance and interoperability testing solutions, INVECAS announced the world’s first HDMI® 2.1 with HDCP 2.3 chip & IP solutions.

Key features of HDMI 2.1 include:

  • 8K 50/60Hz, 40 Gbps and 4K 100/120Hz, 18 Gpbs as outlined in the HDMI 2.1 specification
  • Enhanced Audio Return Channel (eARC)
  • Support for Auto Low Latency Mode (ALLM) and Variable Refresh Rate (VRR) modes
  • Support for static and dynamic HDR allowing for extended dynamic range and wide color gamut support
  • HDCP 2.3 premium content protection

The processor 2.1 upgrade program offered to current owners will be similar to the upgrade program that is offered for Lyngdorf MP-60 and Steinway & Sons P300.
