  8. Hi all, Looking forward to getting some advice on an integrated stereo amp for my new VAF Signature i90 speakers. I also have a spare brand-new i90 for sale.

  10. 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.
  11. 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?

  12. Hi all, Our little Signature i90 seem to have been a big hit at the Australian Audio & AV Show in Melbourne. Thanks for all the feedback and the positive posts in that thread. Those who experienced them already know how good they are, however we are getting lots of enquiries about from people who haven't heard them yet but have heard the 'buzz' about them. Their regular price is $999each in black or white. On orders taken from the 3 days between right now up to and including this Friday 8 Nov I'll do them for $699each. So why am I doing this? Well, firstly because it's my company and I can. Secondly it would be good if a few more owners could help those who haven't heard them yet do so. Pictures & data sheets attached. Taking orders on Signature i90 for $699 each for 3 days. Go. FreeCall 1800 818 882 or email vaf@vaf.com.au Philip EMAIL - Signature i90 & i49.pdf EMAIL - Signature i90 Preliminary Information.pdf

  14. The lowest distortion, highest output, lowest compression subwoofer we have ever made can move 18,000 litres of air in under 60 seconds. What do you think that might do for your hifi or home theatre system? A little preliminary information in the StereoNet VAF forum here http://www.stereo.net.au/forums/index.php?/topic/53205-vaf-gravitas-subwoofer/
  15. A little preliminary information bellow and attached. It should be possible to order on the www.VAF.com.au website later next week. Or call FreeCall 1800 818 882 if you want to get in first. The lowest distortion, highest output, lowest compression subwoofer we have ever made can move 18,000 litres of air in under 60 seconds. What do you think that might do for your hifi or home theatre system? â€One of our more substantial long-standing customers wanted to add a pair of our VAF MPB SW19 subwoofers to his surround system. Comprising seven VAF Signature Series loudspeakers, and along with his existing furniture they didn’t fit in his room. The Gravitas Project was born as a custom build for this system. It became a VAF product because the second we all saw and experienced the finished results, well, we all simply wanted that for ourselves. Now Gravitas is an ongoing VAF product and everyone else can have one tooâ€, explained VAFs Founder, Philip Vafiadis. "Considerably smaller and more flexible than the MPB SW19, Gravitas features two 330mm woofers (one at each end) along with two digital processor and amplifiers. Each woofer may be a different distance from a listener so we have made it possible to independently align the phase of each woofer. “A little pedantic? Sure, but this is a serious subwoofer and we are chasing perfectionâ€, Vafiadis said. He added, “It is difficult to express how awesome the new Gravitas really is. Normal specifications do not properly describe the effortless power, weight and authority. To frame the Gravitas’ immense capability in another way, when played to capacity reproducing the lowest note on a four string bass each Gravitas will displace 18,000 litres of air in under 60 seconds. Everyone who experiences Gravitas wants oneâ€. The first customer purchased four! That’s the equivalent of moving over one cubic meter of air in less than a second.†VAF claim great pride in attention to detail and state that inside the substantial 47Kg Gravitas there are five internal partitions ensuring no external panel is unsupported by more than 130mm resulting in an inert resonant free enclosure. Frequency is flat to under 20Hz, and the inbuilt independent Digital Signal Processing for each woofer may be a first on any commercial subwoofer. For audiophile stereo lovers there is a high pass filtered output making Gravitas an active crossover easing the bass burden and distortion of the loudspeakers which might be paired with it. Priced from $4,999 each in black Gravitas is 800mm x 350mm x 515mm. Custom finishes are available on request. www.vaf.com.au FreeCall 1800 818 882 email vaf@vaf.com.au VAF Research EMAIL - VAF Gravitas.pdf
  16. 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.

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.

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.

  17. Melbourne Audio Club monthly meeting - VAF presents the new DC-X63 speaker. 8pm Wednesday 19th February, visitors welcome. Willis Room, City of Whitehorse Offices Maroondah Highway (Whitehorse Road), Nunawading Melway Map 48 Ref G9 Contact: 9437 1249 At last month’s General Meeting, I had pre-announced that SGR, a local Melbourne speaker manufacturer, was to present at the club. Unfortunately due to circumstances beyond their control, they could not be available. Fortunately the club was contacted at the right time from VAF, who were looking to demonstrate their new redesigned DC-X63 speaker. Back in October of last year, a prototype of the DC-X63 was presented at the Melbourne Audio and AV Show. The club will get to hear the first of the production units which are ready for the market. "It is the most technically sophisticated new loudspeaker under $3000 now made in Australia" Since its original release in 1995, the DC-X63 loudspeaker has been VAFs most popular model. With over 10,000 owners, the new DC-X63 builds on this legacy. With 6 drivers precisely time aligned on 5 individually stepped baffles in a cabinet so intricate it requires robotic precision. “Beyond an evolutionary step, the new DC-X63 is a quantum step in design, and actually mimics the way sounds are produced in real life†says VAF’s founder and CEO, Philip Vafiadis. He goes on to say, "whether for music or movies we wanted the sound to be as true to life as possible. We had to rethink everything and create something totally new. In the process we solved aesthetic as well as technical problems. A computer controls the machining of the profoundly complex enclosure designed to minimise stored energy in all its forms. An Acoustic Skin elegantly covers all this complexity. The design allows each owner to personalise the look of their speakers to compliment their room". Due to the short notice regarding the change of presenters, the electronic equipment for the night had not been finalised, but I am sure that VAF will have the appropriate gear to demonstrate the full potential of their new speaker.

  20. Hi, Can someone enlighten me as to what model of speakers these are? They say VAF on the front but that is it. Also what are the specs? ie Ohms, watts,etc. Thanks! Edit: I've seen Phil himself frequents these forums, perhaps he could help out.
  21. Link to the StereoNet VAF Forum here: http://www.stereo.ne...-dc-x35-thread/ VAF is aproaching its 35th Anniversary, and the DC-X has been an important model for VAF. Now in its 6th incarnation, the DC-X continues to evolve. The new limited edition VAF DC-X35 will be shown to the public for the first time at the Australian Audio & AV Show in Sydney October 19-21. Check out the flyer in the VAF forum for details. Comments and questions welcome. VAF www.vaf.com.au
  22. VAF is opening membership today for an innovative new Club Concept, the VAF AV Insiders Club. We get to see a lot of things from a lot of brands before they are launched, and as SNA folks here tend to be, well, a little more interested than most, we thought we might share what we are doing here. It's simple: Members will get early or pre-launch information about some of the leading brands (including our own VAF of course), as well as oportunities to pre-order at very attractive pricing. To be clear, the focus will be on the latest gear, not only model run-outs. Some of the information will not be shared publically - it is exclusive. Joining is easy, just send an email to vaf@vaf.com.au with your name, address, email & phone, as well as using the words "Insiders Club" in the subject line. That's it. We'll follow up in two weeks with details about how to get the most from this innitiative
  23. Hello to all our Stereo Net freinds. Please see the Attached PDF flyer with some of our Show detais, as well as special offers and new models. Following on from Melbourne last year, it is so good to see this show in Sydney. Darren, Simon & Philip from VAF will be at the show and look forward to showing the new models, and meeting a few SNAers so please point yourselves out. Enjoy! Questions welcome :-) VAF News Oct2012 EMAIL.pdf

    DC-X35 Thread

The DC-X35 will be shown at the Australian Audio & AV Show in Sydney 19-21 October (Next Week), and you'll see an offer for the first 50 in a seperate VAF Show thread. We won't reveal all here just yet, but the new DC-X35 builds on the previous platform with smoother response again, better dynamics again, 10% deeper bass (as if its predecessor didn't go deep enough), and 10% higher bass power handling too Prices will start at $2,999 in Black European Oak. Other finishes will be available. A DC-X35cc centre speaker will also be available for $1,799. Every set will be individually serial numbered for each owner, and a gold plate on each speaker will identify these limited edition speakers. Questions welcome...
  25. Hi guys, I'm hoping for a bit of advice for a noobie. I've recently purchased but not yet received some VAF DC7s, a DC6 centre and their SW4 sub. I've been lusting after these for quite some time, so I'm pretty damn excited. I currently have a Marantz SR5003 receiver. Now, I'm also looking for some surround speakers but unfortunately I've already broken the budget with the above purchases, so I'm looking for a cheaper alternative than for eg the VAF DC3s. I was looking at some PSB Image B4s for surrounds as they seem to have similar specs to the DC3s, are quite small and can be had for about $300. The only problem is how much power they can handle. The PSBs are 6ohms with a recommended input of 10-80 watts. However, the Marantz outputs 90 watts/channel at 8ohms and 115 watts at 6ohms. The big question being, am I going to blow them up? My usual listening volume on the amp is at about -35db, but for films it could be at about -20db and for real ear bleeding fun with music (including concerts on bluray), perhaps at the very most -15db. I've done a lot of looking around online to try to find out roughly how many watts per channel the receiver would actually be outputting at the above listening levels but to no avail. I'm also interested in how much power the amp would be sucking from the wall at different listening levels (it has a maximum of 600 watts according to the back panel), so I might buy an energy meter to test it out. If anyone has any idea whether these speakers would be ok or if there are any other cheapish alternatives that might match up with the VAFs reasonably well, I would really appreciate your thoughts. I'm also aware that the PSB Image B5s will handle much more power but that's another $200 I'd rather not spend... Cheers.
