Steinway Lyngdorf’s S – Series theater in Savan’t New York Experience Center
Steinway Lyngdorf and Savant worked in cooperation to upgrade the audio system in the dedicated home theater, designed by theater specialist, Theo Kalomirakis, with Steinway Lyngdorf’s newest collection, the S – Series.
The S – Series was installed just in time for the 2012 CE Week in New York City. The contemporary theater is just one part of a nearly 8,000-square-foot showroom, which has been fully automated to showcase how Savant’s systems integrate in a real-world home and commercial environments.
“We are thrilled to be able to showcase and seamlessly integrate Steinway Lyngdorf’s S – Series in the Savant Experience Center, bringing an elegant form factor and exceptional audio quality to movies and music in our home theater,” explained Savant’s executive vice president Jim Carroll.
Inside the contemporary eight-seat theater, three S-15 speakers finished in a discrete matte black create a statement in the front as the only visible speakers in the room. Model LS Series boundary woofers are tucked into the corners and S-16IW surround speakers are discreetly hidden behind acoustically transparent cloth. The design found throughout the space is courtesy of celebrity designer Thom Filicia, known as the host of Dress My Nest on the Style Network.
“It’s been a pleasure to participate in Savant’s SoHo Experience Center from the start, and we were thrilled when they asked us to update their home theater with our newest collection,” stated Peter Lyngdorf, founder of Steinway Lyngdorf. “Our compact speakers in combination with Savant’s stunningly designed showroom, really debunks the misconception that you have to sacrifice style if you want performance. You really can have your cake and eat it, too.”
The S – Series in Savant’s Experience Center is driven by Steinway Lyngdorf’s Model P1 surround sound processor, which processes the audio signal entirely in the digital domain. High-definition audio signals are handled in full resolution, and after RoomPerfect processing, the signal is sent directly to the fully digital amplifiers using Steinway Lyngdorf’s digital link technology.
