New Steinway Lyngdorf 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.

Unique features

Space-saving and room-friendly design


The shallow speaker design and sound tuning optimized for wall placement make the Model A the first choice when the room shape or interior design demands a space-saving setup. The distinctive design with black piano finish, black strings and matte gold details resembles the famous Steinway & Sons pianos and can be customized in other lacquers and finishes on request and special order.


Extraordinary Air Motion Transformer tweeter


The Model A uses the company’s own Air Motion Transformer tweeter with an ultra-thin, folded Kapton diaphragm between extremely powerful neodymium magnets, achieving a completely clear, high resolution, distortion-free performance even during the loudest crescendos. The tweeter is embedded in a solid, gold-plated base and complemented by lacquered side panels and acoustically transparent strings, giving the speaker its unmistakable Steinway & Sons appearance.

Two large and powerful woofers


Two large 12” woofers on the front are unusual for a speaker of this size, providing the foundation for the Model A’s out- standing bass performance. The two woofer cones combined add up to a very large sound-radiating surface, capable of reproducing a deep bass even below 25 Hz. Large vented magnets with copper rings and four-layer voice coils provide low distortion, low compression, and high power handling. The shallow cabinet allows speaker placement against the wall, which together with RoomPerfect™ leads to a stunningly powerful, fast, and tight bass performance.
