In celebration of the company’s 15th anniversary this year, Steinway Lyngdorf announces that it is working on 8K-ready HDMI 2.1 HDMI board updates for processors to launch a new generation of home cinema, music, and gaming.

Continuing Steinway Lyngdorf’s technology approach to the AV market, the company will be using INVECAS chips in the new solutions. Following the 2017 acquisition of Lattice Semiconductor Corporation’s HDMI design team and Simplay Labs’ subsidiary, which oversees standards compliance and interoperability testing solutions, INVECAS announced the world’s first HDMI® 2.1 with HDCP 2.3 chip & IP solutions.

“Steinway Lyngdorf and INVECAS, Inc. are collaborating in bringing the most advanced HDMI 2.1 home theater solutions to the market. INVECAS is the leading provider of advanced HDMI 2.1 Silicon solutions for delivering the very latest HDMI 2.1 specification features to market,” said Chandlee Harrell, Senior Director at INVECAS.

“Staying at the forefront of cutting-edge technology is a founding mission for both Steinway Lyngdorf and Lyngdorf Audio,” said Thomas Birkelund, CEO of Steinway Lyngdorf. “Our partnership with INVECAS represents just that, another step forward in providing our clients and partners with the very latest technologies for innovative video/audio experiences.”

Key features of HDMI 2.1 include:

  • 8K 50/60Hz and 4K 100/120Hz as outlined in the HDMI 2.1 specification
  • Enhanced Audio Return Channel (eARC)
  • Support for Auto Low Latency Mode (ALLM) and Variable Refresh Rate (VRR) modes
  • Support for static and dynamic HDR allowing for extended dynamic range and wide color gamut support
  • HDCP 2.3 premium content protection

The updates will come to both Steinway & Sons and Lyngdorf Audio branded products in 2021 starting with the Steinway & Sons P300 and Lyngdorf Audio MP-60 processors.

Don't buy the European version

The Sony NW-WM1ZM2 is a fantastic piece of craftsmanship. But avoid the version for the European market.

The best buy in its class

Pro-Ject Debut Pro marks the company's 30th anniversary with style and finesse.

Classics

The little brown NAD amplifier caused a sensation. No one had heard such great sound from a small amplifier that cost so little.

Prefers good recordings

Although the Elipson P1 is the company's first preamplifier, it is pleasantly free of bugs. If you're looking for an amplifier set at the upper end of the premium class, the answer may well be French.

Grows with the tasks

Elipson's power amplifier works treacherously small. But it's really a heavyweight that gets the best out of your best recordings.

Award-winning RIAA in a new version

Vertere's turntable amplifier has arrived in an updated version, called Phono-1 MKII L
