Dual Chirality Star Geometry (henceforth DCSG or DCS) is Hapa Audio's proprietary geometry that is utilized in order to solve a multitude of design obstacles at once. The primary obstacle that must be overcome in order to exceed standard cable design is how to deliver sonically pure signal without information loss or interference.
We looked to a prominent design within the industry for inspiration. DCSG is based on the classic 'Star quad' geometry which utilizes four leads that are fitted together with opposing leads being the same signal. The cable is twisted with either right handed or left handed chirality. Star quad geometry has been popularized because of its excellent noise rejection capability and ease of implementation. However, Star quad suffers from inductive loss due to the close proximity of all leads being twisted tightly together. Much like the feedback with a microphone from a PA, wires closely bound together 'pick up' the signals from their neighboring wires induced electrical field. As discussed before, a cable twisted with right handed chirality will have a 'right handed' field induced, while a cable with left handed chirality will have the opposite chirality to it's field. These fields lead to destructive and constructive interference issues reducing overall fidelity. The longer the cable the worse the issue gets.
Enter DCSG. In order to reduce the effects of induction fields between uncommon leads DCSG spaces all leads away from one another equally while still maintaining a consistent twist geometry. The spacing is even maintained in the center of the cable utilizing our nylon spacer backbone. But that is just the half of it. DCSG introduces a new twist on classical star quad by adding a full 4 more leads into the mix. Hence 'Dual Chirality' Star Geometry. Four leads with right handed chirality and four with left handed. All eight leads are equally segregated from one another and only ever cross each others paths at 90 degree angles reducing inductive crosstalk to a statistical minimum.
The result: a cleaner signal transfer then previously possible, yet lightweight, tangle resistant, incredibly portable and sturdy. All while simultaneously delivering the best fidelity possible.
