Nice explanation. I assume the Lyngdorf MP-50 doesn't have the same bass steering he is referring to?This gives some useful insights into how Steinway Lyngdorf approach the design of their systems.
They are the only systems I know of that add zero distortion to the signal. This is critical for high end music reproduction but also means you can play these systems are much higher volume levels than other systems without harshness or fatigue.
At high end shows people often complain about the volume level other systems are being played at. This isn't a request that Steinway get when the systems are playing far louder.........because there is no noise, distortion or lack of resolution.
We also got engrossed in listening to music and watching movies. The only downside to the systems at Rob's place is you lose yourself in listening to and watching stuff and time flies by.No, we didnt bother but I know how it will measure. I'll try and get the measurment from Cory now...
Is this a average of left and right?Hi Gents, do excuse the first images, screen grabbed and sent off without thinking it may end up under the eyes of you geeks. Take a look at these new images. The overall idea was to identify what was happening below 20Hz. My personal taste with my home theatre is to feel low bass more than hear it.
The Steinway nails it in all areas 20hz - 20khz, offering up a sound stage that is full of detail and clarity. Our ultra low bass conclusion was due to the openness of the room, the sub 20hz SPL falls away due to the lack of an enclosed room to help the pressure/gain build up. For Steve was ideal due to his ears throwing a wobbly if introduced to anything too low.
That said, a closed room would introduce other challenges so it's a trade off. Considering 95% of most movies have little or nothing below 20Hz, most people would not really miss it.View attachment 1215735View attachment 1215736
