  • Steinway approved speakers

    An interesting article. I'd like to see the list of engineers (and their field of expertise) who collaborated to make this happen. Disclaimer: Not implying that these sound good, or that they're worth the money (thank Gawd there's no price listed). I like the anecdote about the audience at the end. For those who may not recognize the name, Lyngdorf has quite a reputation in electronic room corrections.

      Those model Ds resemble full Statements. I bet the Statements are closer to my budget:p

        I had a pair. I personally was unhappy but they told me I could correct problems with 500K in room treatments. The diesels on my Yacht were being rebuilt at the time so I just gave the Speaks to a friend.

            Reproducing the full output of such an instrument usually adds distortion of some kind which accordingly becomes more obvious. In a great piano there simply are no higher harmonics capable of masking system distortion from a hifi system.
            What? So a Steinway piano produces pure sine waves??

              Gee, an ad for $150k speakers contains inaccuracies. Who'd of thunk it? :D

                OPINION: These are "money means nothing to me" bragging rights speakers.
                The higher the price tag the greater the hype:
                More expensive speaker often get named for dead composers ( public domain name recognition )
                I'm guessing that S & Sons get a licensing fee for use of their name.
                Since there are pianos with 97 and 102 keys ( Stuart & Sons "The 102 key model ranges from sub contra C (CCC) to f (f5) above top c on the standard keyboard. This provides nine extra keys in the bass and five in the treble. The 97 key model has four extra keys in the bass and five in the treble." )
                There must be plans for extended range models speakers - at higher cost of course: :rolleyes:
                My old synthesizer models ( from the the early 70's ) had greater FR range than a piano, but I doubt the ultra-rich would buy a speaker called a VCO just because it could reproduce pure sine waves.

                  Reminds me quite a bit of Audio Artistry. Not sure if it's a coincidence.

                    At least they're being open about the bias:

                          Mark - I couldn't resist. What they claim they have in R&D really had me going. For that kind of dough I'd eliminate my Mortgage and buy Bose.

                          Jonasz - Man... I think the whole thing shouts gaudy.

                          Donc is on the right track... lets clone those babies, a new project for JohnyRichards.... how to make a 150k speaker for $300 !!

                            Don't listen to me - I have not sold any $150,000 speakers.

                              I'd say you could make the speakers under 6k including baffle materials.
                              Not sure what you could make for $300 as far as large speakers go.
