  3. Item: 2x VAF DC-S subwoofers Location: Brunswick VIC Price: $350 for both (and open to offers!) Price drop: now $200 for both Item Condition: technically great cosmetically ok Reason for selling: bought some smaller ones Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, Extra Info: 430mm x 430mm x 430mm I have them on casters for convenience. The vinyl cover was quite scratched and worn so I have repainted them. The sound is very good, they keep up easily with my main speakers that operate at about 118db at 1m.

Low distortion and clear, detailed sound have been achieved, even at levels in excess of those required for domestic listening.

Second order low pass filter with acoustic crossover frequency continuously adjustable between 40Hz and 125Hz. Application The VAF DC-S Active Subwoofer is suitable for extending the frequency response of all speakers and enhancing the maximum Low Frequency SPL of an existing High Quality audio system for premium quality home theatre. The DC-S is the ideal choice for use in high quality systems where maximum sound quality is required from a unit of reasonable size and cost. MAIN FEATURES: High Output: Over 100dB at all passband frequencies. -3dB at 27Hz. Flat Frequency Response: +/-0.5dB over the pass band. Lower -3dB point at 27Hz, upper -3dB point variable. Easy to Place Flexible Control Adjustments: Ensure good sound when placed in various locations in the listening room. Low Stored Energy: For tight, clear bass without significant 'overhang'. ] .

I’ve been able to integrate these subs easily with a number of different speakers with and the dual set up has always resulted in smooth and fast bass. Unfortunately a careless removalist took off some of the black veneer on the corners (pictured) but they are in perfect working condition. Only selling as a pair at this stage. Pictures:

Item: VAF i93MkII - Signature Speakers (both mains and centre channel) Location: Brisbane Price: $8000 + $4000 (RRP $19,198) Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Downsizing due to upcoming house move Payment Method: Pickup - Cash Extra Info: My VAFi93 MkII speakers are superb, and I will miss them dearly. They are without doubt my favourite speakers. They portray a wide and deep soundstage, with intricate detail, and very deep authoritative bass down to 20Hz. I use them for both 2 channel and for my Home Theatre system. The main channels I will sell separately if required for $8000. My centre channel, I will also sell separately if required for $4000. My preference is to sell them as a package, as they are perfectly matched in timbre, colour, size and performance. Pictures:
  11. Hi folks, After being extremely impressed with the VAF Evo 1 and I91 signature series bookshel speakers at the hifi show im looking to blow (way over) my budget on a pair of one of these. Reviews are generally good but not too many reviews around (i guess due to the generally relatively exclusive/rare number of these around). Anybody able to relay their experiences with VAF speakers or any hints/tips to get the best out of them?? Thanks Hifiscot
  12. interested in getting some opinions So I am looking to upgrade my front speakers to get a bit more enjoyment from 2 channel music. (I have a range of musical tastes - not big on dixieland jazz or zydeco) I really plan on trying to listen to as much as I can, but I am eyeing a set of VAF i66mk2's - would like to get some views on how they might compare to speakers like the ATC SCM40's or Harbeth HL5's. I am unlikely to be able to audition the i66's, but I have owned a pair of DC-X speakers many years ago, and was pretty fond of them. Happy to get other options - the i66's are probably the limit of how big I want to go
  13. Hi all, recently had a little accident with one of my Vaf DC-3 surround speakers falling off the wall..... long story short it killed the main driver. (Tweeter looks to be ok) Does anyone know where to purchase this driver from? The little bit of research I’ve done say they may be a SEAS driver that can be bought from Madisound. But I have non idea what the actual driver is, looks like VAF has installed some cover thing on the magnet. Otherwise I will need to send back to VAF to replace. Anyhelp would be appreciated cheers
  14. Hi all, I'm in the process of upgrading my HT setup and will eventually replace everything. At the moment I run a Yamaha RX V663 AV Receiver that has done me well in my current setup, however I don't know how well it will go with the new speakers I want to get. I have shortlisted a few speakers of interest.... Krix: - Harmonix MK2 for fronts (Sensitivity 90dB, Nominal 6 Ohms (minimum 3.1 Ohms)) - Vortex MK2 for centre (Sensitivity 91dB, (Nominal 6 Ohms (Minimum 3 Ohms)) - Dynamix MK2 for surrounds (Sensitivity 88dB, (Nominal 6 Ohms (Minimum 3.7 Ohms)) Vaf: - DC-X63 (Sensitivity 94dB, Nominal 6 Ohms) or DC-X42 (Sensitivity 92dB, Nominal 6 Ohms) for fronts - DC-X63cc (Sensitivity 94dB, Nominal 6 Ohms) or DC-X42cc (Sensitivity 92dB, Nominal 6 Ohms) for centre - surrounds unknown at this stage Klipsch: - RP-260F for fronts (Sensitivity 96dB, 8 Ohms) - RP-450C for centre (Sensitivity 97dB, 8 Ohms) - RP-150M for surrounds (Sensitivity 93dB, 8 Ohms) I just want some peoples opinions on how the AV receiver will go with either of these setups and if I really should be looking at getting a new AV Receiver first? Yamaha RX V663 Specs: - Minimum RMS Output Power for Front, Center, Surround, Surround back 20 Hz to 20 kHz, 0.06% THD, 8 Ω ...................................... 95 W - Power Consumption [Other models] .................................................................... 440 W Cheers, Dave
  15. We've installed our great looking and great sounding Soundwall at Carlton AV. One of the best stores in Melbourne, we're so pleased they will be handling sales and support for VAF Soundwall in Melbourne into the future. Give them a call to arrange an audition or just pop in. 164 Lygon St, Carlton. 9639 2737.
  16. Item: VAF i90 pair of speakers - black Location: Forestville NSW Price: $1,000 pair (RRP $999 each) Item Condition: Used, small marks, drivers excellent Reason for selling: No longer required Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, Extra Info: I'm putting these up to gauge EOI as I'm sad to be letting these go. They have been excellent speakers for smaller rooms or second systems. I've recently scaled down and sold my second system (Rega R stack was used) and these are surplus. Don't be fooled by there small size - they can really put the volume out and cleanly. I bought them directly from VAF. These come with the metal tri feet that make it great to sit straight on a shelf or desk. The feet can be removed, however VAF advised that it is safer for them to do it. I don't have the original boxes, so I'd prefer a Sydney buyer. I'm happy to discuss dropping them off if not too far away. See https://vaf.com.au/collections/signature-speakers/products/signature-i90-1 for more details Pictures:
  17. Selling my pair of Vaf DC-X35 Black European Oak floor standing speakers. Thread discussion about speakers here: http://www.stereo.net.au/forums/topic/46133-dc-x35-thread/ Purchased in 2013 for 3k. Has been an amazing setup. I have been using an Emotiva XPA5 (which I'm also selling) with amazing results. Reason for sale is baby proofing my house. Condition is good. Has a few minor scratches. Will upload some pictures tonight. Location is Brisbane. Pickup preferred, though will courier at your expense. Price: Offers over $800 considered.
  18. Item: VAF Signature i33 speakers and VAF 3m SC Location: Adelaide Price: $2700 Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Upgraded Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Upgraded over 2 years ago (Magico S1). They have seen very little use since then. In perfect working order. Cosmetically great. American Cherry finish. Banana to banana 3m cables made by VAF for the i33. Would prefer local pick up as I don't have the boxes but willing to post otherwise at buyer's expense. Can audition for locals. Pictures:
  19. Item: VAF Signature I-66mk2 - Palisander (Brazilian rosewood) finish. Bought in 2012 directly from VAF. Location: Hampton Park, VIC Price: $5000 (Negotiable) Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Upgrade of the system and not longer needed.

  20. Hi, I'm new to the forum and need some info please. I have been offered these Vaf speakes for a low sum of money, they are bookshelf size and I can't seem to find out anything by searching the web so I thought I'd give you guys a shot. They have flecked paint covering on them that appears to be original but the Vaf badge on the cover looks differant to the other Vaf speakers I've seen. They sound clear and awesome with Jazz type music. Question, are they real Vaf speakers, are they rare, how old, what would've they retailed for back in the day and any other opinions would be appreciated. My mate want's $80 for them, thanks ., `
  21. Item: Vaf i66 (Mk 1) Location: Melbourne Price: $2,700 Item Condition: Very good condition. great sound. Some small marks on base Reason for selling: Wanted a change so upgraded to the Vaf i93. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Some very nice Vaf i66, sound great, in what I believe is the best finish of the Piano Palisander (way nicer than my i93 finish). These speakers are fairly heavy at 60 KG each, so would prefer local pickup. C Pictures: Added pictures
  22. Hi guys, I'm in need of some solid purchasing advice. I have been looking to upgrade my current bookshelves (krix equinox) I have auditioned the Vaf i91s and can really appreciate why everybody on these forums love these little speakers so much. I was a little concerned that they are a little bass shy but they are only a small speaker. My question is, I am better of for a very similar price getting a floorstander such as the Krix Harmonix, as its a large room (8x7) . I am yet to demo these but from all accounts they are pretty good bang for buck. I realise the VAF's are probably going to be more refined but my amp is pretty modest Cambridge CXA60. Music genres vary a lot anything from Arcade fire, Jazz to Kendrick Lamar Assistants is appreciated.

    DC-X35 Thread

    This is the official VAF 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. Howdy here's a quick round up of the evolution of my system. In 1996 it consisted of: Meridian 508 Krell KAV300i Duntech Viceroy As of joining Stereonet my system had been reasonably stable for over a decade & looked something like this On the left are some of my CDs & taking pride of place were my Duntech Viceroys which I owned from 1996 until 2010. Corner front left is an REL Strata III doing incognito bass duties disguised as a lamp table. Inside the cabinet on the right is my Krell KAV300i, A Denon AVR underneath. On the left looks like my Oppo 93 on top of the old Panasonic DVDRecorder. Bottom left is the kids PS3. The Centre channel is a Duntech Onyx and the rears would have been Sonique SAV1s (out of picture). Also out of the picture is my Benchmark DAC1 USB which is nearer my chair where the laptop is. I still have a Meridian 508 CD Player which is now hiding in my wardrobe - I can't bear to sell it. Sometime after this picture I ripped up the carpet. In 2010 I sold my Duntech Viceroys because of the bass problem in my room & replaced them with Vaf i91 which I had originally bought for rear channels. Much else was the same. Can't seem to find any photos & even though it was documented on Stereonet the photos no longer show up for some reason. There were a few more minor changes some good, some terrible. eg: I had a Emotiva UMC1 in my system longer than I would have liked. An Emotiva XPA3 handles the center (unchanged) and rears (Vaf i90s) I now run the Oppo straight into the power amps. The Oppo has an ESata and USB HDD attached to it. There is a Marantz SA8003 for two channel SACD listening. I still have the Krell 300i which is going strong since 1995 and is now powering its 4th pair of speakers (the ones before the Duntechs were Sonique 6.5) Then we get to the current incarnation which came about in December 2013 when I received my new VAF i66s. Apart from this the main change is that because of over flowing CDs I have around 700 of them stored out of their cases in folders. When listening to music I put a blanket over the TV. If I'm in a hypercritical mood I set up some impromptu absorption at the first reflection points as well. (blankets on microphone stands). This seems to make less difference than the blanket over the TV but it is noticeable, So it seems the main thing I change about my system is the front speakers. The last four pairs have all been South Australian and all had first order crossovers. Hmmm .. .....
