A rugged powerhouse of strength and performance
With more than 170 hours of precision machining behind each speaker, the Model D speaker is a rugged powerhouse of strength and performance. The baffle is milled from solid blocks of aluminum to offer complete stability to the drive units. The result is perfect audio reproduction and completely stabilized synchronicity between signal and sound.
The original and first Steinway & Sons loudspeaker
The Model D is not only the company’s largest loudspeaker, but also the most iconic: It laid the foundation for Steinway Lyngdorf, combining the outstanding craftsmanship and musicality of a Steinway & Sons piano with the advanced technologies of Lyngdorf Audio. The promise of reproducing the full sound of a grand piano or the scale of an orchestra lead to a design unparalleled in the world of loudspeakers: A fully open dipole speaker with no sound coloration, four extra-large woofers, an ultra-light Air Motion Transformer tweeter, and an active speaker design with integrated digital amplification.
Ingenious dipole design
The Model D is a dipole design with the tweeter, two midrange drivers and four woofers mounted in an open, extremely rigid aluminum frame, exiting the sound in the room like an instrument would. The extra-large woofers lead to a substantial and rich sound, while the bass energy acoustically cancels out sideways, minimizing the usual sound reflections coming from the room’s sidewalls. An open dipole speaker is also free from the sound colorations audible with conventional speaker cabinets. With a frequency range from 20Hz to 22kHz and a maximum sound level of 117dB, the Model D reproduces any music in any room, genuinely.
