The Black Dragon Speaker Cable is a smooth, transparent-sounding cable that falls on the warm side of neutral, yet is very dynamic. This cable has a full presentation that adds body and warmth to your music without making it sound laid back or lush. It utilizes 4 x 11 AWG ultra-pure, slow-drawn annealed and enamel-coated copper conductors that smooth out the top end while adding bottom-end weight, making the midrange sound more musical. It is generally pretty flexible given the size of the conductors. Each strand acts as its own conductor due to the enamel coating, thus reducing skin effect. It's a great cable for vocals and a variety of music genres. Available in a variety of lengths and terminations, the Black Dragon Speaker Cable can be configured in standard, biwire, or biwire/biamp by custom request.
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.

The Black Dragon has been designed to complement our Silver line. We had many requests from our customers with systems where Silver wasn't an ideal fit, so we set out to make the best possible copper cables to fit their needs. The results exceeded our wildest dreams!
In the Black Dragon you'll find an extremely smooth, transparent cable that's not too warm-sounding. For years, our hearing tastes have driven us toward silver, never quite appreciated the sound of copper to the same degree. Now that has changed!
We tried to build a cable with the great detail and presence of silver yet also provided the smooth, jazzy sound of copper. The Black Dragon V1 does just that. Only your ears can be the judge.
We took what we learned from the Silver Dragon Speaker cables, using just the right ratio of size stranding to optimize the sound. We ended up with a new geometry, using a special stranded grouping. The copper strandings are all 99.9999% high-quality, low crystalline structure, pure copper. There are 4x11awg conductors. A standard run will yield approximately 2x6awg conductors, and the bi-wire will yield 4x11awg conductors.
The Black Dragon uses an internal bi-wire design, which will help cut costs for those of you that want to run bi-wire. We continued to use Teflon coating, as it is the best dielectric. We then cover it in a protective layer of Techflex and solder your connector of choice.
