Steinway & Sons Model A

Steinway Lyngdorf announces the launch of the new free-standing Steinway & Sons Model A loudspeaker. The new Model A is a full-range loudspeaker and provides the acclaimed Steinway & Sons sound performance from a loudspeaker specifically designed for room-friendly placement against a wall. This makes the Model A the first choice when the room shape or interior demands a more space-saving setup, from living rooms and media rooms to apartments, penthouses, or yachts, and even dedicated home cinemas without the space for separate woofers.

No compromises have been made in technology: Steinway Lyngdorf’s signature Air Motion Transformer tweeter and a dedicated midrange driver provide outstanding clarity and transparency, while two powerful 12” woofers deliver very deep, yet defined bass even from this shallow speaker cabinet. The speaker design features distinct side panels in black piano finish, black strings, and matte gold accents. Custom colors and polished gold details are available on request and special order. The Model A loudspeaker is designed and assembled by hand in Denmark.

As with every Steinway & Sons loudspeaker, the Model A is part of Steinway Lyngdorf’s Integrated System Approach, ensuring each part of the system—from the Steinway & Sons stereo and surround sound processors to the powerful digital amplifiers and loudspeakers—is designed from the ground up to work perfectly together. Steinway Lyngdorf’s RoomPerfect™ technology is the finishing touch for each integrated system. RoomPerfect™ acoustically calibrates the speaker to the room acoustics, always ensuring the very best sound experience for every customer, in any room.

Anker Haldan, CCO at Steinway Lyngdorf:

“The popularity of our Steinway Lyngdorf floor-standing speaker systems has grown significantly in recent years. During this phase, it became evident to us that there is a demand for expanding our range to offer a system in between Model O and Model B. This has resulted in the complete new Model A speaker system, which we now proudly present. With an expanding global network of distributors and our new UK subsidiary to be fully operational by April 1st 2022, the timing is right to launch the Model A to quality-conscious people seeking the ultimate in music systems.”

Roland Hoffmann, Director of Product Marketing at Steinway Lyngdorf, emphasizes the special purpose of this model:

“Over the years, the Steinway Lyngdorf loudspeaker portfolio has continuously expanded, and ranges from the iconic Model D to the incredibly small yet ingenious Model S. The new Model A is the ideal choice for anyone who wants the acclaimed Steinway & Sons loudspeaker performance but prefers the most living room-friendly placement nearest the wall. While this is often regarded as a less than ideal placement in the room, the Model A surpasses any expectations and provides an extraordinary sound experience.“

The Steinway & Sons Model A will be available in Q2 2022.

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.

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.
