The latest StereoNet review can be read here.
The VAF DC-7mkiii is the very latest generation of our famous DC series of speakers. Award winning designs that reach back to the early 1990's, the VAF DC range has and continues to be class leading value and performance.
The DC-7mkiii is the third generation of it's type. A slim yet powerful floor standing speaker with great bass extension and power to suit small to medium size rooms. Wonderful stereo imaging and accurate sound stage reproduction, the DC7-mkiii must be the go to for quality at an affordable price for music or movie reproduction. Easily suited to a home theater application for front channel or surround channels in larger system configurations.
Our new 170mm natural fiber cone bass mid incorporates a unique vented alloy chassis and vented voice coil former. Venting is an important addition effectively reducing heat generated in the voice coil.
A proprietary natural fiber cone material delivers a very natural and detailed sound. Supported on a linear suspension and soft low damping rubber surround with a non conducting fiber voice coil former. Utilizing an extended copper pole piece sleeve to lower inductance and distortion further this driver has incredibly low noise and distortion figures.
We've combined this with another highly unique driver for the higher frequencies. These are handled by a dual concentric diaphragm tweeter with a specialized central phase plug to control and give excellent on and off axis performance. This gives the DC-7mkiii even more natural and accurate reproduction over a wider area in your room.
Power handling as with all VAF speakers is excellent, maintaining very low distortion levels even at higher volumes. The tweeter incorporates an inbuilt heat sink to help keep the voice coil as cool as possible at all times. Important when you want to reproduce the full dynamic potential of your music or movie soundtrack.
These unique drivers are housed in a solid hand finished double sided veneer cabinet with a front baffle up to 30mm thick. The front baffle precisely time aligns the bass and tweeter Available in three standard colours - Natural, Black, Jarrah and Brown oak finishes are standard. As with all VAF products we make them here in Australia so if you want something a little unique, call us to discuss your needs - just about anything is possible.
