Steinway to debut its $150,000 stereo

Launch will be in Singapore.

Steinway Lyngdorf

We got word of a somewhat mysterious stereo by piano legend Steinway a few months ago, but little was known about it at the time. Now we hear that the system, made in partnership with Denmark-based Lyngdorf Audio, is about to debut in Singapore.

The so-called Model D is a half-ton behemoth that supposedly has the ability to "replicate the exact tone of one of Steinway's beloved Model D grand pianos," BornRich says. True to its roots, the receiver and speakers are finished in piano-black lacquer.

As mentioned earlier, only 100 of the systems will be manufactured at present. But, at a price of $150,000 each, they probably won't have to worry too much about back orders.
