Portable Headphone Amplifiers / DACs Top Picks by Moon Audio
This is a special version of the The Black Dragon 75 Ohm Mini Coax Digital Cable for the Chord Hugo 2 to Hugo M Scaler. This cable is extremely flexible which makes it a perfect match for portable audio digital transmission applications like the Hugo 2. It utilizes a 3.5mm male mini plug configured for Dual Data output transmission to the Hugo M Scaler.
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 Hugo M Scaler will allow you to upscale standard 44.1kHz digital audio up to 705.6kHz (16x CD’s 44.1kHz native resolution), ready to be passed to a suitable DAC; Hugo M Scaler extends its upscaling performance to 768kHz (from 96kHz input data) for our dual-BNC-input DACs: DAVE, Qutest and the new Hugo TT 2. The Black Dragon is the best way to integrate these products.
The Black Dragon uses a miniature 75 ohm cable geometry based on RG179 specifications. It uses a silver-plated copper 7 strand conductor, and a 100% coverage silver-plated copper shield. Both are 99.99% silver over 99.999% oxygen free slow drawn copper. The wire is soldered to the connectors with Cardas silver solder and it is then covered in 1 layer of Techflex braid to protect the geometry integrity of the cable. We do recommend a 40 hour break-in time for the cable to truly realize the optimum sound.
Dragon Audio Cables are covered by a one-year limited warranty against material or manufacturing defects. For more information, visit our Warranty Terms page.
