Steinway Lyngdorf Model C System
The Model C offers a more intimate—but no less awe-inspiring—sound experience than the Model D. The formula is simple: take the legendary Model D with its floor-standing dipole speakers, then scale down the footprint and add best-in-breed boundary woofers. The result is an attention-grabbing statement system that sets a new standard for full-bodied bass reproduction.
The Model C’s compact, floor-standing dipole design emits equal, natural sound from both sides of the cabinet—forward and backward. Thus it produces sound that interacts with the room much like a live musical instrument, creating audio that can’t be compared and a statement that can’t be ignored.
The Model C series is a commanding visual presence in any room. Model C speakers and boundary woofers are available in an exquisite range of classic and custom finishes, including the same signature black lacquer finish found on Steinway & Sons pianos. Wood finishes and high-gloss colored lacquers are options to fit any room décor. All finish selections are offered with a choice of gold or chrome accents.
A freestanding addition to the Model C speaker, the proprietary boundary woofer concept was developed to manage bass tones and play with the environment, not against it. With the use of boundary woofers, direct sound and reflections from the environment arrive at the listening point at exactly the same time, thus improving sound attack and timing. This makes the Model C series an ideal choice for those who seek the live dipole sound but demand a deeper base for home cinema and bass-heavy music genres.
The Model C’s optional head unit stereo processor may well become one of the most arresting and statement-making pieces in your room. Standing just over three feet in height, the head unit is a testament to both craftsmanship and control. It is manufactured to exacting standards; the built-in CD drive, for example, eliminates vibration through a decoupling process that ensures optimal optic reading of the music on the disc.
