Steinway Lyngdorf Model P200 Surround Sound Processor

Set to become a defining market trend in coming years, Danish audio company and maker of some of the world's finest music and home cinema systems Steinway Lyngdorf has just released their new Model P200 Surround Sound Processor, which is promising to deliver a high-definition digital surround sound experience that the world has never heard before.

Simply a must-have to arm your home with that cinema listening experience, the Model P200 is equipped to produce fully immersive audio. It supports all of the leading surround sound technologies including Dolby Atmos® and Auro-3D®, as well as DTS:X, which is a leading technology found in both commercial and home theatre systems.

When integrated with the Model P200, these three technologies are capable of delivering a cinema-quality listening experience with fully immersive audio, just as the filmmakers intended you to hear it. Now with the ability of added height and top layer elements contained within a soundtrack, you will be able to hear all of the sweet and subtle elements as they smoothly float between each speaker, which makes each adventure feel even more real. Also part of the Model P200’s magic is Lyngdorf's RoomPerfect technology that calibrates and equalizes the system within its specific environment, which can correct any anomalies in the sound that are introduced by the room itself.

Eminently capable with multiple speaker setups, the Model P200 works in perfect harmony with your other gear, allowing you to have your speakers placed in the one position and, with the flick of a button, you can switch between Dolby Atmos and Auro-3D. This will now optimize a single surround sound system for either format fluidly with minimal effort or reconfiguration.

In addition to state-of-the-art surround processing, the Model P200 is 4K and 3D video ready, HDCP 2.2-compliant, and supports advanced HDMI switching, allowing any HDMI input to be routed to any HDMI output. Like its predecessor, the P1, the P200 is equipped with Steinway Lyngdorf’s RoomPerfect room-correction system and full digital signal processing that keeps the audio stream in the digital domain throughout the audio chain.

Now you get to hear the immersive soundtrack just the way it was intended when it was first mixed. With the Model P200, the system is optimised for each format, every time. And with an energy efficient design, it automatically turns off unused amplifiers when in stereo mode and draws less than 0.5 W in standby mode.

Steinway Lyngdorf say that their approach to sound reproduction is a bit different from the mainstream, as they consider frequency response is secondary. They have found that impulse response, or proper time domain performance, much more important in creating a believable illusion of real, three-dimensional sound. They say once you get the impulse response right, correct frequency response can always be attained.

Steinway Lyngdorf Model P200 Surround Sound Processor (available in matte black) is available now for $49,895 RRP
