Model P200 Surround Sound Processor Launches

Press release October 27, 2015

Steinway Lyngdorf, maker of the finest sound systems in the world in partnership with Steinway & Sons, is proud to announce shipping of its latest product, the pioneering Model P200 surround sound processor.

Model P200

The Model P200 is equipped with the advanced technologies for which Steinway Lyngdorf is known, including RoomPerfect™ and fully digital signal processing. Capable of handling up to 256 output channels, the Model P200 offers full support of 3D surround formats Dolby Atmos®, DTS:X, and AURO-3D®. It also has advanced HDMI switching and supports 4K and 3D video and HDCP 2.2. With these features, the Model P200 delivers digital high-definition surround sound experiences that the world has never heard.

The Model P200 will begin shipping worldwide at the end of October.

Immersive Surround Sound

Immersive surround sound installation is set to become a defining market trend in coming years. With Dolby Atmos®, DTS:X, and AURO-3D®, filmmakers can now add height and top layer elements to a soundtrack for the most realistic cinema-sound listening experience ever created.

The Steinway & Sons Model P200 will work with these technologies in a remarkably versatile approach that allows for unlimited creativity in installations. The Model P200 offers full support of every audio format on the market, including immersive surround sound formats. And there’s no need to pick sides; at the touch of a button, you can switch between speakers placed at the positions recommended for any specific format, or have your speakers be optimized for one and let the Model P200 intelligently optimize the audio for the other formats.

RoomPerfect™ Room Correction

Like its award-winning predecessor the Model P1, the Model P200 surround sound processor is equipped with RoomPerfect™, the world’s most sophisticated technology for adapting the sound system to the environment.

With RoomPerfect™ you are guaranteed market-leading sound without compromise to performance or interior design. The Model P200 delivers a perfect surround sound experience equally well to living rooms, media rooms, and home theaters, with virtually no need to design the room acoustics around the sound system.

Advanced HDMI Switching

The Model P200 features advanced HDMI switching capabilities and can handle up to five separate 4K video streams simultaneously, allowing routing from any HDMI input to any output with unique On Screen Display for each stream. It can also show four inputs on one screen (tiling), or split one input to be shown on four screens as one coherent video-wall. 

Fully Digital

The Model P200 is 100% digital without sound-deteriorating digital-to-analog conversions. Unlike analog, which inevitably adds its own flavor, the fully digital Model P200 processor ensures sound is replayed completely intact, delivering the purest sound possible.

Fully digital processing in combination with fully digital amplifiers by Steinway Lyngdorf keeps the audio stream entirely in the digital domain, while maintaining full resolution of the original signal. This means nothing gets between you and your sound.

DCI-Compliant Digital AES/EBU Input

For movie aficionados, the Model P200 offers an optional upgrade with a 16-channel DCI-compliant digital AES/EBU input for integration with digital cinema servers.

HDBaseT™

Increased flexibility is easily achieved through HDBaseT™, a feature set that converges uncompressed full HD digital video, audio, and 100BaseT Ethernet through a single LAN cable, allowing you to run the signals up to 100m/300ft.

Energy Efficient

You don’t have to sacrifice efficiency - or the environment - for quality. The Model P200 uses significantly less power and generates less heat than a traditional analog setup. Energy-efficient design automatically turns off unused amplifiers when in stereo mode, and it draws less than .5 W in stand-by.

Control Options

Multiple control options including RS232, remote web interface, IP-control, and ihiji offer total control and assurance.

 

Full System Approach

The Model P200 can only be used with amplifiers and speakers from Steinway Lyngdorf. The legacy of absolute perfection that comes with the Steinway & Sons partnership cannot be attained with a mix of “off the shelf” products from different manufacturers. No chain is stronger than the weakest link, and the full system approach ensures high efficiency in every aspect.
