Steinway Lyngdorf wants to help you turn up the volume at your next yacht party.
The Danish audio brand has unveiled the Marine Speaker, a brilliant new addition to its “Steinway & Sons” range. True to its moniker, the freestanding speaker is designed for one very important purpose: to fill yacht, pool and patio spaces with premium sound and look great.
Certainly, the speaker is nice to look at. The brand has cleverly designed the Marine edition as a kind of visual counterpoint to its other Steinway & Sons models. Instead of jet black cabinetry, the outdoor unit is dressed in an airy white lacquer with deluxe gold trim, allowing it to fit in with almost any outdoor yacht deck or patio. of swimming pool. Rounded corners further soften the look, helping the speaker look more like an outdoor design object than stereo equipment.
Of course, sound is everything when it comes to speakers. Steinway has taken steps to ensure that the marine speaker delivers audio quality that will equal the elements. Each unit is equipped with two 8-inch woofers and two 10-inch passive woofers, so your bass will sound the way it needs, even outdoors. A 6.5-inch driver, meanwhile, promises a midrange that’ll cut through ambient sound, and the brand’s signature Air Motion tweeter helps the speaker pick up high frequencies, even at high volumes.
Because the speaker will live under the sun and the stars, Steinway Lyngdorf included an aluminum enclosure and front drive units to protect against salt water and wind. Each unit can also be securely attached to any sun lounger or deck using mounting rings and an optional tubular leg. So you never have to worry about moving your set indoors.
“The yacht segment has been important to us for years, and we have many compelling examples of fitting interior spaces on a luxury yacht,” Steinway Lyngdorf CCO Ankler Haldan said in a statement. “Now, with the Steinway & Sons IP65 rated marine speaker, we are able to deliver the ultimate sound for the outdoor areas of a yacht.”
As you’d expect, marine speakers won’t come cheap. They will start at $53,400 and start shipping in June. Visit the brand’s website for more information.
