Steinway Lyngdorf, a world leading manufacturer of audio solutions, have recently announced the launch of their new Steinway & Sons Model O Speaker.
First demonstrated at the CEDIA 2018 trade show last month, the Model O Speaker is designed ‘to provide the legendary Steinway & Sons performance in a small package without the need for a separate woofer’, according to Steinway Lyngdorf.
Boasting a small footprint which makes it a perfect alternative to wall mounted speakers, the Model O functions impeccably as a surround speaker or a simple stereo setup. It also includes an array of impressive features and functions to suit many different installation environments.
The tweeter used in the Model O is the uniquely engineered Air Motion Transformer used in all Steinway Lyngdorf speakers. That provides a moving surface four times bigger than a normal dome tweeter and ensures correct and detailed reproduction of all overtones of instruments playing, thanks to resolution and stress-free movements.
Each Model O speaker also includes a specially designed 6” aluminium midrange driver with a large neodymium magnet. Initially designed for Steinway Lyngdorf’s Model S speakers, the driver is extremely efficient yet compact in size making it the ideal solution for maximising performance while minimising cabinet size.
The powerful midrange driver is then paired with an 8” slave unit to provide full-range reproduction and impactful bass. All of those features are packed into the compact speaker which comes in a standard black piano finish but that can also be customised to suit different styles of décor.
