Torsion Speaker Cables Tour

Torsion Tour

Alrighty, the masses have spoken and despite holiday craziness, I have been convinced to go ahead and launch the Torsion Tour during the Holidays!!! I have the info for the tour on the form as well as pricing on the form. Please keep in mind, if you are on vacation during the holidays (lets say through late Jan early Feb) you can list the conflicts on the bottom of the form and I will do everything in my power to arrange around your schedule! :singing:

I have a pair of the silver Torsions in my upstairs 2 channel system.  I won't do a full review of these because you can sign up for the tour and hear them for yourself.  But there are a couple things that are really remarkable about them that I don't think Jason emphasizes enough, because he's fairly modest.

1st, they are strikingly beautiful.  When you see them in person, they look like audio art.  When I spend a lot of money on something I want it to look good as well as sound good.  Jason takes a lot of care and pride in creating things that look beautiful and badass. 

2nd, the sheer amount of work and labor that goes into these things is incredible.  Jason does not just grab a bunch of off they shelf cables, slap on some connectors and tech flex and call it a day.  No, each cable is created as a bespoke piece of art.  Let's put it this way - every single conductor is hand polished by Jason for HOURS and HOURS and HOURS until it is a mirror so perfect you have to look at it through an electron microscope to see any imperfections.  And that's only ONE step of the build process.  It's utterly insane. 

As for sound, I'll be honest, I usually don't buy cables from audio manufacturers because I can build my own cables as good or better than what most manufacturers offer.  The one exception is Hapa.  There's no way in hell I can build to the level that Hapa does.  Not even close.  And the result is that the Hapa Torsion cables blow away anything else I've heard.  They completely elevate my entire system.  Putting them in (for me) was like upgrading all of my components, all at once.

I’ve been out with the flu, but nothing can stop this tour! We have 7 folks who have signed up already! I will be closing the tour form today so get in while you can.  :thumb:

On another note, I am going to have special items on sale to clean out some of the pieces I’ve built for the most recent tours! Keep an eye open, I’ll be dropping these at special prices and most of them are single piece items at one time only pricing.  :thumb:

Gents,
The Torsion tour officially launched! Cables are on the way to the first recipient.

Another update, I have received parts for the silver jumpers finally! I will put them together and get them out to the first tour member asap. Regarding the copper jumpers I will try to get them out in the next week or so, but I had an issue with the parts I received and needed to readdress what I use for them. I’m using Furutech low mass other than another brand that shall remain nameless at this point.

For your members please post your thoughts here.  :thumb:

Currently sitting at my house (more specifically behind my speakers). I have a lot of notes written down, but it's hard to focus when completely enthralled by the music. Demo these cables at your own risk. Seriously. I'm pretty sure they feed about 1.21 gigawatts of power for your speakers because every time I sit to listen in the evening, it's 3am before I even realize what's happened.  :lol: :lol: Good thing my work has two coffee pots going at all times.

Thanks for the update nlitworld. The tour is still moving. We also have the first member who is working on his review as well. Things got a bit screwy mostly due to too much going on during the holidays but we’re still on track. Keep watching this space!  :green:

Gents,
I wanted to run this by the tour member folks. A minor “oops” has turned into a “why didn’t I think of that??” moment. Through a misunderstanding the Haiku tour set AND the Torsion tour set have ended up together. At first I was worried that it was too much for folks, but the feedback I’m getting is that they are having fun with the ultimate lineup. The Haiku tour has two pairs of Haiku with 1.5 m and 1 m. It also has the silver Aero usb. If folks are ok with paying a bit extra in shipping I am more than happy to continue this with the rest of the tour. Let me know your thoughts either privately or here on the forum. We’ll make it work either way.  :thumb:

It’d be the USB cable and Haiku RCA.  :thumb:

I was wondering what a full set of Hapa would sound like, even though I reviewed the Ag USB and Haiku RCA combo I'll try it again with the Torsion added.

Just be careful if you do test a full meal deal of Hapa cables. It's REALLY hard to go back. :shake:

What would a "normal run length" loom of Hapa cables cost?  I have to start thinking about what to spend my MegaMillions on....

Which cables are you referring to? The speaker cables? Silver copper? Let me know and I can let you know.  :thumb:

Or check out my website. The speaker cables aren’t up there yet. That’ll happen soonish.  :duh:
