Launched in 2020, the Archipel range includes a mix of desktop, lounge, media room and home cinema systems.

Inside CI visited L-Acoustics London showroom, shortly after their launch in 2020, and experienced all in a variety of settings. The sheer power and presence of the sound we experienced was remarkable. The larger models combine startling dynamics with grin-inducing musicality and liveliness.

“Consumer focus has shifted to the home, and to high end home audio as artists create a growing library of live streaming content,” explains Guillaume Le Nost, Managing Director, Creative Technologies, L-Acoustics.

“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.”

Prices start from €7,550 (Fiji), €14,050 (Hawaii), €23,400 (Tahiti) and €39,300 (Tonga).
