This is an interesting one, Aero Ag USB and Aero Ag BNC. The BNC is for a CH Precision T1 master clock to a CH Precision C1 DAC.  8) some serious front end for sure.

It’s a true testament that someone with that eye watering expensive digital front end chose your cables. Pretty obvious they could afford any cables on the market. Congratulations.

I haven’t had a chance to show you all but there has been a mostly cosmetic refresh for QS cables. Gone are the heat shrink arrow indicators near the barrels. They’re replaced with the sexy new silver decals. Also the new version uses a much nicer and better shielding quality Mylar layer making the QS shimmer.  8)

Last but not least, these ones have the new hotness from KLE the Perfect Harmony connectors. All I can say is WOW! Smoother more organic while retaining the same detail of the Absolutes. A worthwhile upgrade for sure. These are going out for eval to an AC member.  8)

I have really gotta rub the coins together to get a USB and headphone cable from you.  Just love your work.

Going out today! I haven’t posted the last few just out of forgetfulness on my part, but this set I remembered before boxing things up.  :lol:

2 Aero Ag BNC and one Aero Ag USB. This has been a theme lately, a lot of folks are using the BCA cables for either proprietary BNC interfaces with with streamers and DACs or they’re using them for clocks. I really love the AECO BNC connectors. An excellent design and incredible sound quality.

Keep on rolling! Aero Cu USB went out yesterday. Every Aero cable is made by hand. It is a meticulous process that takes several days to make. From polishing to installing the shield, the entire process is done in-house.

And going out today. This is a theme lately! Dual Aero BNC for a proprietary clocking system. A lot of folks using this sort of setup it seems. I’m curious to hear what experience you folks have with such a rig.

Thanks to the folks who share their experiences. It’s what helps spread the word on Hapa Audio.

This went out last week to an AC reviewer:

2 pair of Ember RCA. One set at 2 meters. It’s been a while since I’ve posted any Ember builds. It might be time for another tour for them.  :green:

Got another build I’ll post later. This one is unique.

I’ve been very happy with KnØt FS for most of my listening needs. For headphones it’s literally the best I know how to make. However when I’m on the go, I’ve wanted something more compact and easier to carry. I would normally use KnØt IEM for my IEM headphones, however for my Meze Lirics this design is less than ideal. I needed something “fatter” in physical design for the Y section of the cable without being gigantic like KnØt FS. I think this solution is both beautiful and sonically exceptional!

This is the first of a kind potentially. KnØt in a compact form for full sized headphones for portability. The beads are pure titanium hand made by a titanium beadmaker in Ukraine. I order them custom sometimes for clients if they want a look that is 100% unique. These ones are anodized to have that gorgeous iridescent verdigris and lavender color variation that changes when viewed from different angles.

I want to post more on KnØt and why it stands at the apex of headphone cable designs. Stay tuned.  :popcorn:
