High end Audio Equipment
Haiku is the first Aerogel RCA cable and the most sophisticated instrument developed by Hapa Audio to date. Haiku uses silver so high in purity it would make a jeweler blush and a design that would get their nod of approval. However, don’t be mistaken by its looks, Haiku wasn’t designed for beauty, it was designed with a singular purpose in mind, the highest fidelity possible from an interconnect period.
Ultra pure OHNO continuous cast silver meticulously polished to 120 nanometer refinement, verified with advanced microscope optics over days of painstaking work yields a precision engineered signal core, suspended entirely in Aerogel. All done in-house.
That is the heart of Haiku.
Haiku utilizes a shield that is unparalleled. Figuratively and literally. Unparalleled in its beauty, unparalleled in its geometric sophistication, and most importantly unparalleled in its orientation to the signal core.
Lattice shielding geometry is designed to run perpendicular at its closest point to the signal core, reducing crosstalk to a statistical minimum. Unlike conventional shielding which encases the signal core in a metal barrier or a simplistic twisted pair which exhibits very poor shielding properties, Haiku utilizes a shield that reduces loss of signal quality via crosstalk with shielding without compromising the effectiveness of the shield. Composed of pure silver Litz combined with a passive carbon fiber shield, the Lattice geometry allows for ideal shielding without reducing micro dynamics, macro-dynamics or detail within the signal. Lattice represents the most advanced shielding technology Hapa Audio has created. All handmade in-house.
Silica dioxide – depending on what context you are using, SiO2 might refer to sand, the quartz crystal heartbeat of a watch, glass, or it might refer to Aerogel. In the case of Haiku, Silica dioxide based Aerogel is utilized for the signal core dielectric. As an homage to this groundbreaking material, Haiku uses hand cut, polished and blowtorched glass tubes for labels all done by hand in-house. The Lens Labels are an artistic touch, designed to give you a closer look at our pure silver Lattice geometry and carbon fiber shield. The labels are installed on the inside of the glass tube and then the glass tubes are filled with optical grade epoxy creating this stunning lensing effect.
All the technology and advances in the world don’t amount to anything if you can’t hear the improvement for yourself. For an opportunity to hear Haiku for yourself please feel free to contact us to arrange an audition.
