Adelaide’s VAF Research to Showcase Sony’s $90,000 4K Laser Projector

You've likely heard of VAF Research for their world-renowned loudspeakers. What you probably didn't know is that there is more to their Adelaide showroom than just sound. They're a true AV specialist outlet with the world's leading brands on display.

VAF's state-of-the-art showrooms this week will feature Sony’s top-of-the range VPL-HW5000es projector hooked up to breathtaking VAF speakers.

Dubbed the world’s most advanced 4K projector, the Sony VPL-VW5000ES contains dual laser light sources that deliver 20,000 hours of lamp life with as much as 5000 lumens of brightness at a screen resolution of 4096 by 2160 pixels.

If $90,000 pushes your pocket too far, VAF will also debut Sony’s 65Z9D 65-inch flat screen TV (RRP $6500) - rated as the best for 2016 by Forbes journal - and the $16,000 Sony VPL-HW550 4K projector.

VAF Research has been designing and building high fidelity loudspeakers of breathtaking clarity since 1978. Owned by Philip Vafiadis and Simon Hackett, the company provides a comprehensive range of affordable premium audio-visual systems with Sony projectors costing from $4299 and VAF surround sound speaker packages for less than $3000.

VAF Research General Manager Simon Wilde told StereoNET:

The Sony event is designed to show customers the future of home entertainment. This is the first time these three new Sony products will be seen together in Australia. It's also a great opportunity to introduce local Adelaide customers to the full audio visual services and products that VAF Research specialise in. Our own loudspeakers are well regarded around the globe, but we're also proud of the partner brands in electronics that we use and sell.

With dedicated purpose-built theatres, showrooms and audio spaces, VAF can demonstrate an array of products designed for different applications and customer's needs.

VAF Research also designed the innovative and world's first Soundwall. Flat panels that attach to the wall with immersive sound. Soundwall has regularly featured on The Block TV show over the last few years.
