L-Acoustics Creations, a division of L-Acoustics, will unveil Island Prestige – a sound and space solution for luxury residential and architectural installations – at ISE 2020.
Island Prestige is designed for open plan living spaces, unusually shaped media rooms, or as an alternative to in-wall speaker installation. It is a modular solution that’s easy to assemble and can operate as a stand-alone personal auditorium with its own Bubble Deck controls, or be integrated with projector, screen, lighting, blinds, and other home technologies.
The pro sound and space solution features 13 front speakers, five rear speakers, and two subwoofers. Overhead speakers can also be added.
The system can reproduce L-Acoustics Creations’ proprietary BluSpace1 standard, matching human hearing spatial resolution and providing live concert dynamics at all audible frequencies. In total, 20,000W of power creates ample headroom for distortion-free sound at high SPL, making Island Prestige suitable for all media playback needs, including conventional stereo, Dolby Atmos cinema, Bubbles2 music and sound art content in Immersive Hyperreal Sound3.
The Bubble Deck is a device designed to host and display Bubbles recordings certified in the BluSpace standard. It provides an intuitive control of essential player functions, such as volume, pause and skip. Island Prestige can also be rotated 360° in either direction to suit multiple-use scenarios.
All audio and control components are discreetly housed within the panelling of the Island Prestige. Two high-gloss lacquer exterior wood veneer are available, whilst the ergonomically designed seating area includes adjustable lounge elements and backrests. As an additional benefit, the seating can be removed entirely to create additional space, if required.
“Island is unprecedented,” explained Christian Heil, president and founder of L-Acoustics. “This is not just another loudspeaker. We have designed innovative lifestyle packages that enable the specification of a remarkable media environment, inviting listeners inside the music. They can share the hyperreal panorama of an orchestra conductor, a musician on stage with a band, a concert pianist at the keyboard, or the fast-paced action of a film. Reclining in the sumptuous comfort afforded by Island Prestige, users simply close their eyes and they are right there, fully immersed, and as close to an authentic experience as they can possibly be.”
