Steinway Lyngdorf Model S Soundbar: The world’s most extreme soundbar

We have already written about the Model S Soundbar from Steinway Lyngdorf, which is among the latest speakers from the well-known high-end manufacturer. We mostly associate the manufacturer with towering loudspeakers in piano lacquer, but now they have created a soundboard. With a width of 189 centimeters, it is made to match the really large TV screens, and corresponds perfectly to the width of an 85″ TV such as the Samsung TQ85QN900D.

The Model S Soundbar is designed to fit in where there is no space for a traditional system with separate speakers. The speaker elements correspond to those that can be found in separate Steinway speakers such as the Model S-15, but here there are three of them gathered in a solid soundbar, including built-in subwoofers.

The Steinway speakers use, among other things, advanced AMT foil tweeters, which are known for providing a very fine-grained treble reproduction, in addition to powerful subwoofers and with advanced room correction (RoomPerfect). Depending on the configuration you choose, it can also be complemented with matching rear speakers. But it costs so much it stings!

It is part of history that the Model S Soundbar does not have its own amplifier or surround processor built into the speaker itself. It should instead be connected to separate Steinway & Sons components, such as the surround processor P100 and the power amplifiers A1 and A2. This gives it access to advanced RoomPerfect room correction, and up to 1600 watts of output power!

The generous size and width of the cabinet not only ensures that the powerful bass elements have enough room to play, but also achieves a wider soundstage with good separation between the center and front channels. Who knows, maybe this soundbar can also provide full-fledged stereo sound for music?

The Model S Soundbar has three two-way speakers for the front and center channels, while two built-in 10″ subwoofers ensure good bass reproduction. (Illustration: Steinway Lyngdorf)

Among the world’s largest and most expensive soundboards

This is quite possibly one of the biggest, most powerful and most exclusive soundbars you can buy today. But how much do you have to pay for the guild?

Well, the soundbar costs 17,000 dollars or close to 180,000 kroner plus VAT, but it doesn’t stop there. From here you also have to add the Steinway processor and power amplifier, which also cost significant six-figure sums.

This tells us that the Steinway sound bar is probably the world’s most expensive of its kind, when everything is added up. However, an original and new Steinway grand piano alone costs around two million.

The Model S Soundbar is available now and can be supplied in black or white, as well as more exclusive finishes such as Steinway high-gloss piano lacquer to order. If it lives up to expectations and the juicy price tag, we look forward to checking it out in a future test.

PSST! The largest and most expensive soundbar we have tested so far is the Beosound Theater from Bang & Olufsen, and it costs around NOK 100,000, plus any TV and base you choose to mount it with.

With the Steinway & Sons Model S Soundbar, we are redefining what is possible from the sound performance of a soundbar. It’s a unique speaker for wall or furniture placement, with or without a TV, that takes the intensity and energy of music and movie soundtracks seriously. With its immaculate finish and the characteristic Steinway & Sons details, it is designed like no other soundbar, says Roland Hoffmann, Product Marketing Director at Steinway Lyngdorf.
