VAF Signature loudspeakers are the culmination of one of the most intensive electro-acoustic research programs ever undertaken in Australia for consumer loudspeakers. They represent the state-of-the-art in production moving coil loudspeaker technology.
Only the best components have been selected, and have been applied with the most sophisticated design techniques currently known. They provide a level of accuracy and performance not seen in other loudspeaker in the world at their price. This accuracy results in transparency, imaging, detail, sound staging and dynamic subtlety that convincingly convey a realistic and true-to-life listener experience.
The VAF Signature i33 is at home in the highest fidelity stereo system. Uniformity of process across the entire VAF Signature Series also ensures that other VAF Signature Series models can be used in harmony with the VAF Signature i33 to create a multi-channel surround sound theatre system of amazing quality.
The VAF Signature i33 is beautifully crafted to the highest standard in finely finished genuine timber veneers and weighs in at 31kg.
Featuring a time-aligned vertically symmetrical driver array, the VAF Signature i33 is a compact floor standing three driver, two way loudspeaker. Each cabinet contains two 175mm woofers and symmetrically arrayed about a single 25mm double chamber Sonotex dome tweeter.
Each woofer cone is constructed of a complex woven polymer sandwich driven by a long and light weight copper clad aluminium voice coil. Each cone is also individually treated with our own propitiatory anti-resonant fibre.
The woofers have low distortion, long linear throw motor systems employing precision engineered copper shorting rings in front of the magnetic pole plate. Molded phase correction plugs are embedded within the large, double layer voice coils.
The tweeter is also unique, comprising a 25mm pure silver voice coil driving a proprietary Sonotex dome backed by it’s own anti-resonant acoustic chamber.
All drivers are time aligned to optimise phase and impulse responses, and therefore maintain exact spatial recreation of the original sound wave front as it was recorded.
Optimised internal damping is provided by VAF’s own advanced HyperSoft material, to effectively eliminate internal cabinet reflections and standing waves.
An obvious and integral design feature on every VAF loudspeaker is natural, acoustically absorbent fibre treatments. These are fitted around each tweeter to accurately control dispersion and effectively eliminate diffraction effects. A major cause of poor imaging and loss of a focused and accurate sound stage.
Manufactured from only first grade MDF up to 36mm thick, cabinet construction is highly detailed. Precisely mitred joints and substantial internal cross-bracing characterise the superior quality of these loudspeakers.
Finishes include very high quality piano gloss or satin lacquer on crown cut, book-matched, genuine timber veneers including Australian Jarrah, Cherry, Black Oak and American Oak. A black lacquer in satin or piano gloss finish is also offered at extra cost. Other finishes are available on request.
