Steinway Lyngdorf Unveils New S-Series

Steinway Lyngdorf, the company that captivated the global audio world with an unprecedented collaboration with Steinway & Sons, announces the launch of the S – Series, a stunning new addition to its distinctive range of superior quality sound systems. Delivering remarkable sound from uniquely compact speaker units, the S - Series is designed especially for smaller-scale private residences, hospitality establishments, and private yachts, where space is a premium but exceptional audio experiences are not to be compromised. 

The new S - Series masterfully combines refined craftsmanship with unparalleled technical innovation to deliver outstanding performance and design to discerning consumers, architects, and designers. Its remarkable performance is due in part to an innovative patent-pending AER (Ambience Enhancing Radiation) dipole tweeter design. The result is a dispersion of the highest frequencies which achieves an enveloping and ambient sound, providing listeners in even very small rooms with the feeling of being in a very large space. No other audio system offers this technology. 

Additionally, the S - Series leverages Steinway Lyngdorf’s proprietary RoomPerfect™ technology, which is the first fully three-dimensional room correction technology that digitally maps the sound field of any room to deliver the most accurate, superior quality sound. The Steinway Lyngdorf Digital Link used in combination with fully digital amplifiers also ensures the audio signal remains entirely digital guaranteeing superior highdefinition audio throughout the system. This powerful combination is unprecedented in a speaker system of this size. 

The sleek S - Series can serve as a primary home audio system or complement existing Steinway Lyngdorf components, reproducing grand pianos and full orchestras as effortlessly as it does rock bands and action movies, creating concert-like sound quality in any space. The series consists of the S-15, a slim mid-high speaker and the S-210, an onfloor boundary woofer, which provides tonally accurate and highly musical bass with virtually no cabinet vibrations. The matching set can be installed in stereo, when combined with the newly launched fully digital SP-1 Stereo Processor, or with the P1 Surround Sound Processor for the ultimate cinematic experience. In either configuration, one has the choice of fully digital amplifiers, the A1 (2 channel) or the soon to be launched A2 (4 channel). 

“The S - Series is an outstanding addition to the Steinway Lyngdorf portfolio,” said Peter Lyngdorf, Founder, Steinway Lyngdorf. “When designing the S – Series, it was imperative that we retained the hallmarks of Steinway Lyngdorf, including state-of-the-art acoustical technologies, and the finest craftsmanship and design. We stayed true to our values of providing only the very best, while pushing the innovation envelope to deliver the same quality in a much more compact unit.” 

While pioneering technology sets apart the S - Series, its design is equally outstanding. Luxurious silk- rapped strings encase the sides of the sleek matte black or satin silver aluminum speaker cabinets. The speakers can be wall-mounted, placed discreetly in-wall, or elegantly featured on bookshelves and cabinets to make a compelling design statement in any home or yacht. 

The S - Series launch follows the success of Steinway Lyngdorf’s flagship Model D speakers, which marked the first collaboration between Steinway & Sons, the maker of the world’s finest pianos, and Peter Lyngdorf, a pioneer in audio technology. Through offering products of highest quality and intrinsic value, Steinway Lyngdorf stays true to its mission of making exceptional music and home theater systems for homeowners across the globe. 

"At Steinway & Sons, we value the reputation for excellence and quality that we have earned through handcrafting the world's finest pianos for more than 150 years,” said Thomas Kurrer, President of Steinway & Sons. “Peter Lyngdorf's uncompromising commitment to excellence in sound reproduction has resulted in a truly remarkable range of sound systems, making for a perfect collaboration in every respect." 

The S - Series system pricing starts at $22,100, including an SP-1 stereo processor, A1 amplifiers, dual boundary woofers and two mid-high speakers.
