Spatial and Steinway Lyngdorf Announce Native Spatial Audio for Deeper, Immersive Sound Experiences

Next generation of high-quality and home audio systems to provide a native immersive experience with the digital integration of Spatial’s real-time immersive audio engine and Steinway Lyngdorf’s unsurpassed processor audio experience

INDIANAPOLIS (CEDIA EXPO) – August 31, 2021

Spatial, the immersive audio experience company that is reinventing sound and Steinway Lyngdorf, the legendary music and audio technology leader, are announcing a powerful native digital integration of Spatial’s real-time immersive audio engine and Steinway Lyngdorf’s unsurpassed processor audio experience. The integration will provide audiophiles and home-theater system owners with deeper, immersive sound that will not only amplify it at its truest fidelity, but will also transport listeners to another place, moment or time.  

“We’ve been working closely with the Steinway Lyngdorf team to break traditional immersive design and installation constraints,” said Calin Pacurariu, Spatial Co-Founder and CEO. “Our clients, modern architects and space designers, demand flexible layouts for interior and exterior spaces across estates. Spatial’s native integration with Steinway Lyngdorf enables designs that otherwise wouldn’t be possible.”

“Spatial’s deep real-time immersion combined with Steinway Lyngdorf’s unparalleled processing performance brings a unique approach to sound in the smart home industry,” said Thomas Birkelund, Steinway Lyngdorf CEO. “Combining our technical expertise and strengths provides our respective customers a first-of-its-kind product that delivers an unmatched audio experience.”

Crafting Next-Gen Sound Experiences

Spatial Reality engine is built on an object-driven platform that operates on modern Mac and Linux systems. The deployments are free of rigid requirements like speaker location, or the size and shape of a space. Designers using Spatial can connect and assign a variety of audio outputs and inputs to create believable soundscapes in real-time. These soundscapes can scale and adapt to each location with natural physics and complex object behaviors that allow for 24:7 dynamic experiences. Spatial Reality runs on a dedicated Mac that is connected digitally via AES67 to Lyngdorf’s MP-60 2.1 surround sound processor or Steinway & Sons P300 2.1 ultimate performance processor.

The Spatial integration with Steinway Lyngdorf allows for a seamless expansion of the soundfield for native processor immersive formats including Dolby Atmos, DTS:X and more. Spatial’s flexible layout allows for additional channels in non-traditional locations to fully envelop the space. The approach is particularly well suited for modern indoor and outdoor theater environments.

With the pure digital integration, Spatial’s expanded soundfield and real-time soundscapes stay in their native form, assuring the highest quality and performance. Native Steinway Lyngdorf technology including RoomPerfect and Boundary Woofers are maintained thanks to the fully digital system architecture.

Early customers include estates with non-traditional theater layouts, where traditional speaker locations were not possible due to glass panels and non-rectangular room designs, creating constraining factors for architects and designers. In one recent project, Spatial’s solution, coupled with Lyngdorf’s MP-60, created an expanded soundfield from 27 James Loudspeakers arranged in a discrete manner, which delivered uncompromising aesthetics and audio performance.

“When I first heard the Spatial integration with the Lyngdorf Audio processor I was blown away,” said Claus Glaesner, CEO of Home Theater Professionals. “I can’t wait for people to experience the rich depth of immersion that’s possible with Spatial and Steinway Lyngdorf.”

“It’s been a pleasure working with the deep audio experts at Steinway Lyngdorf as we developed the native real-time integration of Spatial Reality via AES67 to Steinway Lyngdorf’s processors,” added Michael Plitkins, Spatial Co-Founder and Co-der.“The standards-based approach allowed us to natively enhance traditional immersive audio formats with Spatial’s computational auditory approach in non-traditional spaces while reducing complexity in system design.”
