L-Acoustics Creations has partnered with premium display company C SEED, to produce Maunakea (pronounced MO-na-KEY-uh), a luxury sound and vision system for residential and superyacht environments.

The Maunakea system combines a C SEED M1 165-inch 4k MicroLED TV display with the L-Acoustics Creations' Island Prestige sound lounge.

A self-contained personal auditorium, Island Prestige sound lounger places its occupants at the epicenter of the concert, film, or gaming action via 13 professional audio frontal speakers, five rear speakers, and two substantial subwoofers. Optional overhead speakers provide for 3D audio immersive experience.

The M1 TV’s unfolding screen stretches to nearly 14 feet. Brightness is rated at 1,000 nits. In addition to HDR Plus (High Dynamic Range), C SEED´s Adaptive Gap Calibration Technology renders borders between the display panels totally invisible.

The unfolding screen also rotates 180 degrees in each direction to provide the perfect viewing angle. When no longer needed, the screen refolds with a simple button press, disappearing into the floor.

“Separately, Island Prestige and M1 each represent superb and inimitable technological achievements in their respective markets. But together? There is simply no more visually and sonically incredible way to experience a film or a live streamed concert event at home,” says C SEED Founder and Managing Partner Alexander Swatek. “Maunakea is the latest evolution and true zenith of home entertainment, rivaling the experience of the movie industry’s top screening rooms.”

L-Acoustics Founder Dr. Christian Heil describes the partnership as a much needed departure from the conventional, rectangular dedicated dark cinema room.

The Island comes in a variety of light and dark wood finishes and fabric color options which can be further customized in collaboration with an interior designer. Likewise, the C SEED M1 metallic base is available in four tones and a choice of casings.

Maunakea will be available for shipping in spring of 2022, and both L-Acoustics Creations Certified Integrators and C SEED distributors will be able to offer the combined high-end entertainment system, with the full support of one another’s technical and application teams.
