L-Acoustics Creations Brings Live Arena and Blockbuster Cinema Sound Home
L-Acoustics Creations, a division of L-Acoustics, has added new home cinema systems to its Archipel Sound System range.
The Archipel range from L-Acoustics Creations now includes the Fiji 5.1, Hawaii 5.1, and Tonga 7.1 surround sound versions for home cinema fans which now sit alongside their original 2.1 incarnations. Needless to say, these will be a bit larger and louder than the brand's XO IEMs released last year.
L-Acoustics is the go-to live sound system for sound engineers, live event venues, and touring artists worldwide. The same technology experienced at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, Hammersmith Apollo in London, and world-famous nightclubs Omnia, Jewel, and Hakkasan in Las Vegas can now be enjoyed for live-streamed performances at home.
L-Acoustics Creations launched the Archipel range of systems in 2020 and includes a mix of desktop, lounge, media room, home cinema and versatile indoor-outdoor setups for entertaining. Meanwhile, these sound systems carry the company's DNA and exclusive live sonic signature to give music and film fans that front-row feeling.
The range comprises Fiji (2.1 and 5.1), a compact system perfect for the home office or smaller lounges, and Hawaii (2.1 and 5.1) that suits larger lounges; meanwhile, while Tahiti (2.1) is the signature live speaker system that works equally well with music and film, whether indoors or out. Tonga (2.1 and 7.1) is L-Acoustics Creations' ultimate live music and home cinema listening experience and boasts an enhanced subwoofer. Finally, Ibiza (2.0) is the party sound system trusted and used by the world's biggest DJ's, according to the company.
All systems quote a 20Hz-20kHz frequency range with power going from 4800W to 12000W for the surround sound setups. The DJ-centric Ibiza, however, boasts 24000W.
Guillaume Le Nost, Managing Director, Creative Technologies, L-Acoustics, told StereoNET:
Consumer focus has shifted to the home, and to high-end home audio as artists create a growing library of live streaming content. Consequently, interest in the best home sound systems is surging and L-Acoustics Creations is uniquely placed to fulfil the desire to bring the concert home. We've put three decades of professional audio experience into creating packages that transform musical content into an experience that satisfies the most demanding music lover. In designing Archipel, we wanted a best-of-both-worlds marriage of pro audio and high-end sound.
L-Acoustics' sound systems and technologies can be heard in various Las Vegas entertainment venues, including the Park MGM Hotel Park Theater, where Aerosmith's Deuces Are Wild, and Lady Gaga's Enigma and Jazz & Piano residencies thrilled audiences and critics in 2019-2020.
Established in 1984, L-Acoustics pioneered the line source array with their Wave Sculpting Technology for modern PA systems worldwide.
L-Acoustics Creations Archipel home sound systems can be reserved online now. Prices start from €7,550 (Fiji), €14,050 (Hawaii), €23,400 (Tahiti) and €39,300 (Tonga). Current prices exclude tax and shipping.
