Steinway & Sons


Steinway Lyngdorf commits to a new level of support for the Digital Cinema Initiative (DCI) with a collection of speakers designed for the ultimate Hollywood cinema and large format screening rooms. The X speakers are made specifically for both private and commercial projects that demand the highest possible performance. Designed for dedicated in-wall use, the X speakers are based on the already high-performing In-Wall Series but offer a more powerful level of performance.

The Xtreme versions

The Steinway & Sons X-261 speaker is the extreme version of the successful IW-26V speaker, redesigned and utilizing the more powerful air motion transformer (AMT) from the flagship Model D speaker. This gives the speaker an additional 4dB more peak output, for a total of 120dB with 93.5 dB sensitivity. For even greater output, the X-262 operates without a filter in an active crossover bi-amped version, which adds another 2dB of peak output for a total of 122 dB. Both speakers are optimal as surround speakers in larger rooms.
