  1. Hi all, I am interested in Denon and Marantz new Hi-Fi products, nice to meet you all
  2. Hi Folks, We are playing around with a possible new model and looking for quick feedback. If anybody is around in Adelaide now or Saturday we'd love a little early feedback. Nobody outside of VAF has seen or heard it yet so you'd be the first Yes. 6 Drivers. And all perfectly time aligned.
  3. About the new DC-X63 6 drivers. 3 way. Amazingly still from $2,999pr. Still Australian made. The original VAF DC-X was launched in 1995 and was immediately recognised as a genuine design and performance breakthrough. Over the 18 years to 2013 it had evolved through 6 iterations. Each a measurable improvement over the last. The new DC-X63 is designed to again redefine the level of performance possible at its price. The drawing attached shows the intricate design and construction of the new DC-X63. 6 drivers precisely positioned on 5 individually stepped baffles for perfect time alignment so that the bass, mid and high frequencies arrive at your ears at the same time. That’s the way sound is created, so we think that’s the way it should be reproduced. The twin 200mm kevlar woofers have voice coils with radial cool- ing vents so as the woofer moves it cools itself. A cooler driver delivers better dynamics, higher power handling and lower compression. The 170mm midrange drivers are constructed the same way. The twin tweeter setup of the famous DC-X35 has been retained. The result is the smoothest, most ‘open’, lowest compression sound ever, and with the best im- maging ever from a DC-X. Given that the VAF DC-X has been ac- claimed many times as the best sounding speaker for the money, we are very proud. All DC-X models since the beginning have been well grounded in science. The new DC-X63 certainly raises that bar. Along with its profound technical foundations the design of the DC-X63 is a departure from the norm enabling its entire exterior be personalised. Any colour. Any image. Any visual texture. See them at the Australian Audio & AV Show Friday 18-20 October, or contact VAF for further details. Prototype photo's attached. +/2.5db 30hz - 20Khz 95db/w sensitivity +/-35 Deg relative phase >200hz Amplifiers from 10-200W RMS And a 10 year guarantee Specifications subject to change DC-X42 4 drivers. 2 way. Launching soon too, the all new DC-X42 compact universal loudspeaker has 4 driver 2 way. With a beautiful new integrated stand. Stay tuned. A much spaller version of the DC-X which will replace the current DC-7. Smaller than a DC-7, more like a DC-X. The DC-X Legacy VAF has sold many thousands of DC-X loudspeakers. Here is just a tiny selection of the positive comments people have made: “A new benchmark in excellence in every criteria†Best Buys Home Theatre “The best sound for the bucks†Rolling Stone†“They’re endowed with the kind of deep bass slam that makes prefabricated walls shudder in terror, fused with awesome dy- namic power†Which?

  4. Hello everyone, I am new to Hi-Fi but am just assembling my first (entry-level) serious system. I just bought a Rotel RA-1520 integrated amplifier and now I am on the lookout for a set of bookshelf speakers that would be a good match. This is for a 10m x 3.6m x 3m quite dead (mostly carpeted) open-plan space. The lady of the house has dictated that floorstanders are not an option. Ultimately I would also be looking to add a subwoofer to the mix to adequately cover the bass. At the moment I am just using a Pro-ject DAC box for input which I will also upgrade down the track. I was thinking to spend $AUD1000-1500 but could stretch to $2000 if there is a significant and justifiable increase in quality. I know that the only way to pick speakers is by auditioning them which I plan to do shortly. However, it would be very helpful to have a list of vetted options on which to focus. There is an incredible number of different options out there. It would also be helpful to get an Australian perspective given the different pricing and availability here. So far I've only listened to the Polk LSiM703 which I thought were excellent. A lot of people talk about B&W being a good match for Rotel (685, CM1, CM5). From other forums, KEF (Q300, R300, R100, LS50), Dynaudio (Excite X12, DM 2/6, DM 2/7), ATC (SCM11) and PMC (DB1i, twenty .21/.22) have also been recommended, though the latter are a little out of my league. If anyone could share their experiences with the above or suggest any other options, it would be very much appreciated. Many thanks in advance. Kind regards, Nick
  5. What started as an invitation by the Sydney Audio Club has turned into a roadshow launch of our new VAF DC-X63 (see further bellow). I took the time myself to personally present, and I want to share my perspective that the Sydney Audio Club function last Sunday and was simply great. I am genuinely impressed with this club, and encourage anybody in Sydney interested in audio or music to join. The president (Tom) is a class act, and the committee are hands on genuine people. The culture in the club seemed spot-on. A lovely mix of presentations, gear, followed by real sharing and discovery of music by members. I'm bying a bunch of music that I didn't know existed, and some that I did know existed but didn't realise how great it was. Totally hassle free and very civilised/respectful. Regarding our VAF DC-X63 speakers, which were the focus of the event and presentation, members were proactive with feedback on our new speakers which was very welcome and appreciated. Thanks! - - and I'm pleased that so many of you understood what we are trying to achieved, and liked that as well as the speakers. Audio clubs like this one are the heart of this tiny Audio industry we all love, and anyone in Sydney who isn't already a member should become a member. It was good also to see the club supporting StereoNET with flyers for members to take. Along the way, VAF received a call from the Melbourne Audio Club asking if VAF were interested and able to present to their members Wednesday Feb 19th (next Wednesday) as they had a presenter cancel. We happily agreed, and look forward to meeting all the folks down there too, and reconnecting with some we already know. I hope others can attend too. We are tailing this off with a launch in Adelaide for our home town crowd on Wednesday 5th March. Thanks again to all involved and looking forward to meeting a few of you face to face. On we go. Philip Vafiadis Please note some teaser DC-X63 notes along with the Melbourne & Adelaide dates listed in the newsletter bellow. VAF news, and the launch of our new DC-X loudspeaker, the DC-X63. A huge step forward. Happy New Year from the VAF Research team! We've got plenty of exciting news to share with you: The launch of the eagerly awaited VAF DC-X63. DC-X63 Road Trip - hear them for yourself. Complete Systems - truly immersive Home Theatre can be smaller (and more affordable) than you think. New Products from Oppo, Luxman and NAD Recommend a friend and win $1,000 VAF voucher. Is the most technically sophisticated new loudspeaker under $3,000pr now Australian made? With 6 drivers precisely time aligned on 5 individually stepped baffles in a cabinet so intricate its manufacture requires robotic precision, the new VAF DC-X63 might be just that. With over 10,000 owners since it was originally released in 1995, our DC-X loudspeaker has developed a cult like following. This new DC-X63 builds on that incredible legacy. Beyond an evolutionary step, the new DC-X63 is a quantum leap in design and actually mimics the way sounds are produced in real life. Whether for music or movies we wanted the sound to be as true to life as possible. That’s very hard to do. It’s made even harder because the DC-X has always been excellent value. Making it affordable simply isn’t possible while using traditional manufacturing techniques to deliver the technical sophistication we aspire to. We had to rethink everything and create something totally anew. Born from this was the DC-X63. In the process we solved aesthetic as well as technical problems. A computer controls the machining of the profoundly complex enclosure. This houses and perfectly time aligns the 6 drivers delivering the most realistic 3D presentation of sounds of any DC-X model before it. The enclosure minimises stored energy in all its forms, so the amazingly realistic sound stage is also very pure. An Acoustic Skin elegantly covers all this complexity. This design allows each owner to personalise the look of their speakers to compliment their room, whatever their version of beautiful might be. This way every owner gets this amazing VAF sound with a look that they can choose for themselves. With a 10 year guarantee and 30 day safe’n’sound Web guarantee, the DC-X63 is better value than ever before from $2,999. We have a very limited initial production run and have already taken pre-orders from around the world. Get in quick to be the first to own a speaker that will continue a legacy and go down in history. Free Call 1800 818 882 Email vaf@vaf.com.au www.vaf.com.au Options & Pricing With the DC-X63 you have the option to personalise every aesthetic detail. Between the Acoustic Skin and the cap & base there are endless possibilities. Add a little more sophistication with the addition of solid timbre caps in Tasmanian Blackwood or Jarrah, or personalise your speakers to fit perfectly in your home by printing your design on the Acoustic Skin and adding a colour matched cap and base. Launch Offer - Free Personalisation Save $500 At VAF, we dedicate ourselves to achieving the highest quality of sound reproduction - but you choose the music. Now you can also choose the look. The Acoustic Skin of the DC-X63 is a blank canvas that can be printed with any design you choose. For our initial production run we are offering free personalisation. That's a saving of $500. We'll take a photo for our website to show just what can be achieved. This offer is limited to just 10 pairs. All we need is a good quality picture or something to colour match.

Home Theatre - Immerse Yourself The right system for a luxury yacht could be the right Home Theatre system for your home. A couple of weeks ago we were installing a VAF system on a luxury yacht, where space is at an absolute premium. This allowed us to trial one of the new Slimline AV receivers on the market. We were very impressed. It is the amp we've been waiting for to properly compliment our tiny Signature i49s. Few of us have the opportunity for a dedicated Home Theatre room, but we still deserve the immersive cinema experience, to be able to relax at home with family and friends. Achieving this experience at home need not rob you of space and is far more affordable than you think. You need make no compromise, so there's no excuses left. Get a VAF Signature i49 5.1 home cinema package, complete with a Marantz N1504 slimline amplifier and the brilliant Oppo 103AU Blu-Ray player for just $4,199 - Save $1,348! The word of mouth of VAF enthusiasts sharing the joy of great sound with their friends and family has helped this Australian icon over many decades. If you know someone who would enjoy a system like this, please let them know. You could go into our February prize draw - see details further bellow. Marantz NR1504 AV Receiver There is a lot to cram into a Home Theatre receive. For a long time this meant they were big - usually 160mm high. Finally Marantz have introduced a model that delivers great sound in a package not much larger than a standard Blu-Ray player. The NR1504 is a 5.1 channel amp with networking, Airplay, Spotify and mobile phone control apps. The NR1604 jumps up to a 2 zone, 7.1 channel and includes 4k up-scaling. The VAF Signature i49 has to be heard to be believed. The clarity, range and detail should be impossible from a speaker so small. The secret lies in the proprietary coaxial, dual concentric driver that squeezes a 1" silk dome tweeter inside the 4" long throw woofer. This allows us to make a tiny speaker without compromising frequency range and delivers the ultimate time-alignment, as all frequencies originate from an identical point and time in space (just as sound does when created in nature). There are many micro speakers on the market, but we haven't found any that match the clarity and range of the Signature i49. It can be used without a subwoofer in intimate settings, or with a subwoofer delivering rich detail in low frequencies. Because the Signature i49 can reproduce deeper sounds than almost all other micro loudspeakers it can be crossed over with the subwoofer at lower frequencies. If a sub is required to reproduce higher frequencies it will reveal its location, rather than integrating seamlessly with the speakers and filling the room. Many similar systems crossover anywhere up to 300Hz (about the starting frequency for human voice). The Signature i49 is the perfect example of a speaker that is "heard, but not seen", fitting in with every lifestyle. New Product Releases At VAF, we make speakers and we want them to sound the best that they can for every owner. We invest a lot of our time listening to amplifiers, turntables, DACs, streaming devices, disc players and all sorts of equipment and cables. We do this so we can hand-on-heart recommend the best sounding equipment at each price point to accompany our speakers. Here are some new items that have caught our attention and that we think punch above their weight for performance and value. Oppo Release BDP105D VAF Research was one of the very first to recognise Oppo as being something special. They have gone from strength to strength and in February will release a new flagship, the Oppo 105D. This model has been upgraded with the new Darby video processing unit first seen in the 103D. Not only is the Oppo one of the best Blu-Ray players on the market (at any price), it's also an exceptional CD/SACD player. RRP $1699 - contact us if you'd like to know more. NAD D3020 DAC/Amp with Bluetooth This is an important new audio product that will entice a new generation of audio enthusiasts and change the way the current generation think. If you are looking for convenience of modern features, good performance and low price, well, nothing comes close. NAD have been setting the benchmark as a great entry into Hi-Fi for many years. NAD have really re-established that with the new D3020. A full compliment of digital inputs including Bluetooth connectivity, inbuilt DAC, Subwoofer output, 30 watts per channel...the list goes on. It's the perfect way to bring music to another room, especially if you yearn for more than a simple iPod dock. RRP $699 - or talk to us about speaker packages VAF says THANK YOU With a chance to win a $1,000 voucher Word of mouth is vitally important to us. We want to thank all those dedicated VAF fans who recommend systems to friends & family. Recommend a friend who makes a purchase in February and go in the draw to win a $1,000 voucher towards any new VAF loudspeakers or subwoofers. Winner will be advised by phone. Voucher valid on any new purchase of VAF loudspeakers or subwoofers placed by 31st May. Cannot be used against existing orders or in conjunction with other offers. A quick introduction: Patrick Canny - the newest addition of the VAF team. "What a ride. Since starting at VAF I've learned to see speakers in a whole new light. The depth of scientific knowledge on each and every component is profound. There is a purpose to everything - every angle, every screw, every millilitre. While developing the DC-X63 the team here have explained the logic and science behind every piece and every decision. I have seen inside Pandora's box. It is made from mere physical matter. Wires, magnets, Kevlar, capacitors - hand wound inductors the size of my fist. There is no magic, there is no fairy dust. Yet none of this helps me explain what I'm hearing. It doesn't seem possible. The DC-X63 just disappears, replaced by a drum kit, a guitar, an orchestra. How can such a simple, clean façade contain such majesty and wonder, so much more than the sum of its parts? I look forward to meeting more of you, so if you're in the area, please drop in or feel free to pick up the phone." Copyright © 2014 VAF Research Pty Ltd, All rights reserved.

  6. hi, question from a newb. I'm looking to setup a new system. I see lots a value to be gained by buying used equipment. When it comes to speakers? Is age a factor? For instance, are 10 year old speakers 'on the way out'? Are there any 'rules of thumb' that can guide a 2nd hand purchase? Thanks
  7. Came across a very interesting article written by Roger Russell, The former Director of Acoustic Research for McIntosh Labs. He talks about the truths and myths of Hi-Fi cables, primarily Speaker Cables. I'm sure this war has been fought before on many fronts. But given his arguments and experience in the field, I'm very much inclined to believe most of what he says. What do you guys think ? URL : http://www.roger-russell.com/wire/wire.htm It's quite a long article but rewards the readers patience with knowledge. Cheers

  14. Mission 753 speakers finished in Rosewood veneer. Condition of cabinets is generally quite good (no peeling, blistering etc), with some very minor marks. Would take very little work to get them minty, I just don't have the time. Happy to send as many images as requested to an interested party. I bought from the original purchaser around 4yrs ago. Had them brought here from the UK in custom boxes. Australian customs very kindly opened one speaker box with a knife, hence a tiny slice on top of one cabinet. Thankfully this wasn't deep and is very fine (and impressively straight). The original owner bought replacement x-overs from Mission, which he included in the sale to me but had never installed himself. He also purchased some new tweeters to replace the very average stock ones, again new in box when I bought. I had an electronics tech friend wire in the new x-overs and tweeters and they sound immense. Probably had 200hrs on them since the work was done. Happy to demo how good these are for a local purchaser, they really are quite surprising. I will be embarking upon a house reno next year and these will just end up being moved or stored. Rather than risk damaging them and have the drama I have regretfully decided to sell.
  15. Further Information: PRICE NEGOTIABLE! REVEL Performa C50 Centre Channel Speaker Outstanding centre channel speaker with well-controlled bass, very articulate speech, excellent musicality. Retail price was US$3000 when released (about AU$5000!) - Incredible bargain - see review below. You won't find a centre speaker with this quality and performance, anywhere near the price I'm asking! Note the astonishing on-axis and off-axis frequency response. SPECIFICATIONS Sensitivity: 90 dB SPL, with 2.83 Vrms @ 1 m (4 pi anechoic) Sensitivity provides an indication of how much amplifier power is required for the loudspeaker to play at satisfactory volume levels. This conservatively rated specification indicates high sensitivity and denotes that the REVEL PERFORMA C50 loudspeaker does not require huge amplifiers to achieve realistic levels in all but the largest rooms. Impedance: 5.7 ohms (nominal), 3.2 ohms (minimum) @ 200 Hz (stand position) Impedance indicates whether the speaker system presents a “hard” or “easy” load on the amplifier. A minimum impedance value of 3.2 ohms, together with moderate phase angles, signifies that any competently-designed amplifier can easily drive the REVEL PERFORMA C50 loudspeaker. Filters (Crossover): 3-way, high-order, acoustic response at 260 Hz and 2.1 kHz The steep filter slopes ensure good acoustical behavior in the crossover regions, with a minimum of acoustical interference, along with low distortion and wide dynamic range. The filters feature specially selected components. Woofer and tweeter filter boards are physically independent. Frequency Responses: In-Room Response; ±1.0 dB from 80 Hz to 18 kHz In-room response is a breakthrough measurement that, in a single curve, closely correlates to sound quality and has been a goal of loudspeaker engineers for years. Research, and simple observation, reveals that ubiquitous “on-axis” response curves often cannot distinguish between two loudspeakers with radically different sound quality. This REVEL PERFORMA C50 loudspeaker specification is even more powerful when it is taken in context with the other measurements presented here. In-Room Response Relative to Target Response; ±0.75 dB from 90 Hz to 16 kHz A target response is the ideal response goal and is not flat at the frequency extremes and is used when the ideal reference is not a “flat” line. A target response must be tailored to the loudspeaker’s intended application and takes into account the acoustic impact of the loudspeaker’s location, such as freestanding, or placement near a wall. First-Reflections Response; ±1.0 dB from 80 Hz to 16 kHz First reflection response is a measure of the response a listener hears that is contributed by the first reflections from the walls, floor, and ceiling. This superb specification indicates that REVEL PERFORMA C50 loudspeaker will remain accurate, even in the presence of strong reflections. Listening Window Response; ±1.0 dB from 70 Hz to 18 kHz This improved “on-axis” measurement reduces the visual confusion of inaudible local interference, yet still retains full accuracy without using “spectral smoothing” which results in significant data loss. Low Frequency Extension; -3 dB @ 62 Hz (-6 dB @ 50 Hz, -10 dB @ 38 Hz) Studies have shown that the -10 dB low frequency extension specification is the one that best correlates to controlled listening tests. At low frequencies, most loudspeaker/room combinations will exhibit significant “room gain”, which is an increasing rise in level as frequencies decrease. In addition, the -10 dB specification reflects the steepness (i.e., order) of the low-frequency roll-off, which is not significantly indicated in -3 dB specifications. Dimensions: 10 3⁄ 8"H x 26 1⁄ 4" W x 10 15⁄ 16" D 270 mm H x 667 mm W x 278 mm D (including feet and grille) Weight: 36 lb (16.3 kg) net NOTE: No original packaging. Shipping will be quite expensive - probably 20kg packaged up. Pickup greatly preferred. pdf owner manual: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1WKuq43ubfLueRjJDZJBvTivpWuLLRvTu/view?usp=sharing 5-star review: http://www.audioreview.com/product/speakers/center-channels/revel/c50.html Note that the plastic shell of the front grill broke and has been glued back together (see photos). I always used the speaker with the grill off anyway and expect you will too. The three feet can be unscrewed if preferred.
  16. Up for sale are these almost perfect condition m4s- they have performed faultlessly since purchase from Mcleans Hifi 3 years ago. Excellent full range sound almost irrespective of placement. 93db efficient- so easy to drive. Some info...The Hologram M4 series are the smallest, least expensive speakers in the current Spatial lineup. The base M4 Turbo S is $1995(USD)/pair, and features dual dipole 12" drivers and a high-frequency compression driver mounted coaxially within the upper bass driver, audiophile grade Clarity caps in the crossover, There are a lot of decent reviews, this isn't a bad one for info.... https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=https://stevefolberg.wordpress.com/2016/02/16/world-premiere-review-the-spatial-hologram-m4/&ved=2ahUKEwiPncTdkOP4AhX5TWwGHV_ID8cQFnoECD8QAQ&usg=AOvVaw3WiSaYbnvnlnAyLxhgCjWp Full disclosure - there are 2 minor scratches on the steel of one driver... otherwise they'd be perfect... Came with original boxes and can be posted at agreed cost... somewhat flexible on the price.
