The Black Dragon Digital cable is second in the hierarchy of Moon Audio digital cables. It is very smooth and does not have an overly warm signature. It is natural-sounding with great dynamics and detail. The cable is stiffer than our other cables, so take this into account when choosing your custom length. The Black Dragon is an all copper designed 75ohm digital cable and its great for either audio or video connection needs. We are using the Cardas SCRA connector, which is Cardas 's top of the line RCA. It offers an excellent tight fit.
Most stock cables are made of poor, ultra-thin conductors with poor geometries, rubber jackets, and other issues that can limit the performance of your equipment.
Dragon Cables are handcrafted from quality materials in Moon Audio's headquarters in Cary, North Carolina. All of our cables are created with ultra pure, single-crystal silver and copper strands and engineered to provide the cleanest, most musical presentation. Our wire is void of impurities and crystalline boundaries, leaving nothing between you and your music.
The Black Dragon is warm and smooth with a musical presentation. Copper strands enhance the body, shape, and immediacy of the music. The detail and expansiveness of the Black Dragon make it a flexible fit where a broad range of musical genres are played. It can also improve bass frequencies on bass-light headphones.
The smooth, musical quality makes it a perfect fit for headphones that tend to sound a bit edgy or bright. Despite its warmth, the Black Dragon does not have a laid back, lush sound. It is much closer to neutral, making it a very natural sounding cable.

This male RCA connector is made of non-magnetic, eutectic Brass, Rhodium/Silver-plated, with a gold, plated Brass cover and spring loaded ground for a very tight fit. The Black Dragon can also be fitted with the Furutech BNC connectors for an extra $10 per end. The center conductor is solid-core, high-purity copper,18AWG wire. Wrapped around the center conductor is an FPE center core. This is the best dielectric used in the coax cable market. For shielding, the core is first wrapped in a 100% coverage copper-braided jacket that is soldered to the ground contact at both ends of the cable. A second shield is added with a PVC separation between first and second shield. A capacitor is added between the second shield and the ground contact at the receiving end and is soldered directly to the ground contact at the source end.
The Cardas connectors are treated with Caig Labs ProGold Conditioning Treatment to provide the best electrical contact possible. The wire is soldered to the connectors with Cardas silver solder. The Cable is then covered in 2 layers of Techflex braid to protect the cable and make it pretty. We recommend cleaning your connectors once a year, no matter the plating material of the connector. We also recommend a 40-hour break-in time for this cable.
