Does anyone know what model of VAF speakers is this?

Is this a good series/model?

 

Thank you

Looks like an early DC-X. Probably Gen 1?

 

@VAF may be able to tell you

I have a pair of them, I bought them as a kit. I remember ringing Philip Vafiadis to discuss them and ordered direct (pre internets).

I had ordered a Yamaha mid fi system, sans speakers, and the dealer was worried when I mentioned a kit speaker. When he set everything up, he was blown away by what he was hearing. Jeff Buckley’s Grace was the first CD, Lilac Wine the first song. Magic.

Hey there,

that's a GEN3 DC-X, circa 1995-2000. One of or most popular models ever. Thousands built and shipped all over the place.

Twin Fibreglass 8" bass/mid and a horn loaded Audax tweeter. High sensitivity at 96dB/W

One of the first cross overless designs, one capacitor on the tweeter (and a padding resistor).

We still make the occasional replacement grille sock for these. There's also a retrofit for the bass/mids that we've done to fit the newer GEN4 Kevlar woofers - the original Audax 8" drivers are no longer available as replacements.

 

Hope you like them! They look like they're in great condition.

 

Cheers,

Simon

      Hi All, 
       
      Revisiting the vinyl scene after many years away and have started out with a Pioneer LP30 turntable and I already had a Yamaha HTR-6130 receiver. Down the track  I would like to upgrade eveything, but my budget will not allow that for a fair while. 
       
      I would like to add better speakers than the ones that came with the receiver and was looking at a few bookshelf speaker options. I have seen a few Edifier model and also a Pioneer SP-BS22-LR Bookshelf Speaker. I only have up to $300 to spend. 
       
      I know nothing will blow me away with my current set up and budget, but it's a start to listen to what I have.
       
      Does anyone have any suggestions?

      Item Condition: Used - all drivers work perfectly but there is cosmetic damage. Shipping Options: Pickup available but audition is not available. Suburb or Town: Camden State: New South Wales Payment Method: Cash Reason for selling: They've been collecting dust for too long. Hi,
       
      I've had these beauties tested and all drivers are functioning perfectly, they sound incredible.
       
      Matching serial numbers as indicated in the photos and they also come with a stand for each speaker. There is some cosmetic damage so please refer to the photos.
       
      Local pick up in Sydney region. I don't have an amp, i had them tested at a hifi store so you'll need to byo if you want to test, my appologies.
       
      They were left to me from a family member who has passed away, I know theres someone out there who will appreciate them.
       
      Edit: I'm no longer accepting PayPal I'm only accepting cash, my apologies to anyone wishing to use this service but there are too many scammers. Still happy to prove they're fully functional to those who are serious about the purchase.

      Edit 2: I'd also like to mention that I've included the speaker stands in the purchase price to offset the cosmetic damage. I know their valuable and I believe that's a fair trade.

      Having tried a couple of couriers in the past with limited success. I need another pair of speakers (total 70kgs) moved from Melbourne to Sydney.
       
      Recent quotes from e-go (cheapest $), Pack & Send ($$$), Smart Send ($$$),  Interparcel (via TNT - road were affordable) - any other recommendations?
       
      So far, only PackSend and Smart Send offer Insurance of amounts over 2k.

      Item Condition: used Shipping Options: Pickup available but audition is not available.,Pickup available and you can audition. Suburb or Town: TALLEBUDGERA VALLEY State: Queensland Payment Method: Paypal, Cash on Pickup Reason for selling: Clearing out the spare room For sale:
      2x Meridian 5500 DSP Loud Speakers. 
       
      Bundled with an old studio sale 5 years ago, these have never left the spare room.
      They have not been tested as they require a DSP main unit to operate which is not included in the sale. I have powered them up and the LED's go on. 
      There is some broken glass on the name plate on one of the speakers. Some paint chips on the timber but nothing obscene. Photo's included. 
      I'm assuming this is a fair price for these speakers.
