Steinway Lyngdorf’s $228K Model LS Concert Speaker: More Proof of High-End Audio Comeback

Integrators need no further evidence that high-performance audio is gaining steam than to see (and hear) the $228,000 Steinway Lyngdorf Model LS Concert speaker, which debuted at CEDIA Expo 2012.


Steinway Lyngdorf Model LS Concert Speaker

Steinway Lyngdorf showed off its new Model LS Concert series speakers in a demo room at the CEDIA Expo.

The strength of the high-performance audio market continues to grow, as evidenced by the launch of Steinway Lyngdorf Model LS Concert speaker at CEDIA Expo 2012.

The Model LS Concert full stereo set-up starts at $228,000 and includes an SP-1 Processor, Model A1 Amplifiers, and Model LS Boundary Woofers. The speaker uses as an open-baffle dipole line source to provide "the ultimate in audio experiences."

Without conventional cabinets, the Model LS Concert speaker interacts with the room much as a musical instrument would, resulting in open and life-like musicality.

At the same time, the line source construction allows sound to propagate over long distances. In practice, it is almost impossible to detect any change in volume level and audio quality from the front to the rear of the room, says Steinway Lyngdorf.

I didn't get a chance to hear the demo, but initial reviews from consumer publications are overwhelmingly positive.

So in answer to the question of why you should look at selling high-performance audio: the Steinway Lyngdorf Model LS gives you 228,000 good reasons.

This system sounded great in an untreated hotel. I cant even imagine what they would sound like in a real theater. They are definitely on my “10 things im buying when the bank makes an error in my favor” list.

No question and without a doubt, the system absolutely kicked ass. I had goosebumps with the Michael Buble demo each of the three times I listened to it.
