Steinway & Sons Announces The New Model C Loudspeaker

January 30, 2024

Press Release

Steinway & Sons has announced the launch of the latest addition to the company’s loudspeaker range, the new version of the floorstanding Steinway & Sons Model C loudspeaker. The Steinway & Sons Model C loudspeaker provides the highest sound quality at the level of the iconic Model D loudspeaker, with enhanced room placement flexibility from separate woofers. The Model C is an open baffle dipole design with a very small footprint, making this loudspeaker ideal when the room shape or interior demands an elegant and space-saving loudspeaker.

The Model C provides outstanding sound purity and resolution, based on an open baffle dipole design which prevents any sound constraints from a speaker enclosure. The renowned Air Motion Transformer tweeter and two magnesium midrange drivers are given free rein to reproduce soundwaves, moving freely and interacting with the room like an instrument would. The tweeter consists of 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.

High flexibility and bass performance from separate woofers

Freeing the Model C loudspeakers from the woofers allows a very elegant and slim design with more flexibility for room placement, while the bass performance improves due to the unique boundary woofer concept. Two accompanying woofers are placed elsewhere in the room near the room corners, ensuring an extraordinary sound reproduction of any music or soundtrack, with tight yet also deep and powerful bass, up to astonishingly high volume levels.

Design and finish on the highest quality level

The elegant Model C design with black lacquered front, bronze-gold frame visible through the open back, black strings and polished gold details resembles the iconic Steinway & Sons pianos. The accompanying boundary woofers are available in different sizes, shapes, and finishes, from in-room to wall-integrated models. Every Model C loudspeaker is assembled and finished by hand in Skive, Denmark. Customized lacquers and finishes are available on request and special order.

Integrated system approach for the ideal amplifier match

Steinway Lyngdorf’s integrated system approach ensures the ideal amplifier match and the best system performance. The Model C has been designed with the Steinway & Sons A1 or A2 digital power amplifiers as an integral part, while the Steinway & Sons stereo or surround processor performs the crossover between all drive-units entirely and losslessly in the digital domain, achieving perfect frequency, gain, and time alignment. RoomPerfectTM adapts the system to the room acoustics and always ensures the best possible sound performance anywhere.
