Blue Dragon V3 LOD Cable

Availability: Out of stock


Quick Overview

This is the Version 3 of the Blue Dragon LOD (Line Out Dock) cable. This cable is used to either carry an analog or digital signal from an Apple iDevice such as an iTouch or iPad to another device. That other device can be either a Digital to Digital converting piece such as the Cypher labs Solo -R or Solo -dB or Ral RAL-1648iP1. Or can be used with a dac that has the capability of pulling a digital signal from an Apple iDevice. Like the HRT iStreamer. The Blue Dragon V3 and Silver Dragon V3, while they can be used for portable setups, because of being less flexible are primarily recommended for Desktop or Home Systems. 

It has the same geometry structure as the Silver Dragon Version 3 only it uses UP-OCC pure copper. The cable uses a 4 x 99.999% pure copper 24AWG Teflon insulated stranded conductors.

See also the Blue Dragon USB Cable for connecting computers to USB DACs.

"By Far the Best Value in USB Cables...

The Blue Dragon remains extraordinarily musical and does not suffer from harsh treble."

Blue Dragon V3 LOD to USB

More Views

The cable uses a 4  99.999% pure copper 24AWG Teflon insulated stranded conductors.

Each conductor is made up of a special varying size stranding geometry. The silver stranding is mixed with Kevlar stranding to reinforce the conductor. Making it stronger overall and less prone to failure due to the harsh constant flexing

The conductors are then surrounded by cotton and then a layer of Teflon tape.

The new version is now also shielded and placed in a polyethylene jacket for further protection.

The Version 2 is quieter than the Version 1 with no micro phonics.

Neutrik right and straight angled connectors are used with this cable.

The cable is extremely smooth sounding with great low end and wonderful voicing. And will remove the veil all Sennheiser headphones just like the Silver Dragon. Most stock headphone cables are made of poor ultra thin conductors that work as a bottle neck for the sound.

Blue Dragon iPod to USB Review by Pete Saunders
Wow! I have Drew's Moon Audio Silver Dragon LOD Cable connecting my iPod to iQube and Moon Audio Blue Dragon V3 headphone cables for my HD 650s. I have enjoyed them very much. So, I thought, why not try the Blue Dragon V3 LOD Cable in my car for iPod listening?

All I can say is wow! The differences between an Apple cable or even another cable company's better LOD to USB cable was not subtle at all. Full bass, smoother and open midrange and airier highs when using the Blue Dragon in my car. Now, for the first time I can actually fully enjoy my music while driving. There was always that something lacking--a lack of fullness an an edginess as compared to my HD 650s. Not anymore! Of course using lossless music and after market speakers and amp helps make the comparison even easier.

Drew has made giant killer cables for a fraction of the big boy's prices. You will enjoy all his cables. I do! (Posted on 12/13/12)
