The much loved and highly popular Signature i66 has undergone a refit with the same technical advancements as it's larger sibling the Signature i93.
Our design team have been hard at work developing a completely new electrical cross over topology and incorporating a new Norwegian proprietary Magnesium Alloy tweeter.
The result is a level of accuracy and performance rarely seen in a loudspeaker at the price. This accuracy results in transparency, imaging, detail, sound staging and dynamic subtlety that convincingly convey a realistic and true-to-life listener experience.
Overall music presentation is smooth and balanced, with the speed and accuracy VAF is known for.
VAF is famous for delivering performance at a price considerably less than other imported products. In keeping with this legacy, the i66mkIII offers a huge amount for a lot less than you'd expect - but we always want more. For those with a little more in the budget you can purchase the I-66MKIII in it's standard configuration OR in an SE version.
i66 SignatureMKIII SE.
The SE version for the is something very special. We've gone all out including matched super refined high speed Beryllium tweeters, high density loaded cabinetry increasing effective mass by over 25%, high speed capacitors in all critical signal paths, silver soldered terminations, heavy gauge high quality Analysis Plus internal cabling and optional with a set of Finite Elemente ceramic isolation mounts.
The VAF Signature i66 is at home in the highest fidelity stereo system. Uniformity of design process across the entire VAF Signature Series also ensures that other VAF Signature Series models can be used in harmony with the VAF Signature i93 to create a multi-channel surround sound theatre system without peer.
The Signature i66 speaker is beautifully crafted to the highest standard in finely finished genuine timber veneers and weigh in at an impressive 60kg.
Featuring a time-aligned partially vertically symmetrical driver array, the VAF Signature i66 is a large, floor standing four driver, three way speaker. Each cabinet contains one 210mm woofer and two 130mm magnesium alloy cone midrange drivers symmetrically arrayed about a single 25mm double chamber Magnesium dome tweeter.
Each woofer cone is constructed of composite hard paper pulp embedded with carbon and Kevlar fibres which are individually treated with an anti-resonant natural fibre. Each midrange cone is precisely and individually machined from forged magnesium alloy for the most detailed resolution and midrange performance of any loudspeaker driver manufactured.
Both the woofers and the midrange drivers have low distortion, long linear throw motor systems. They employ precision engineered copper shorting rings, both in front of and behind the forward magnetic pole plate. Solid copper phase correction plugs are embedded within large, double layer voice coils.
Copper coated magnetic circuits are also used to eliminate induced eddy currents, so that even these often ignored minor effects do not intrude or contaminate the sound.
The tweeter is also unique, comprising a 25mm pure silver voice coil driving a proprietary Magnesium 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 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 pads. These are fitted around each tweeter and midrange driver to accurately control dispersion and effectively eliminate diffraction effects.
Manufactured from only first grade MDF up to 48mm thick, cabinet construction is highly detailed. Precisely fully 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. All of our speakers are made here in Australia, as such custom and bespoke finishes are available on request.
