High-Quality Custom Audio Cables for Every Sound System
I'll answer a question with a question: Why are audio cables always an afterthought? Why time and time again do headphones and audio gear that cost thousands of dollars always get packaged with cables that cost cents on the dollar to make? The bottom line is this - materials matter. And when the only connection from your high-end DAC or amp to your audiophile-grade headphones is a cable that is constructed with poor-quality conductors, faulty geometries, and improper shielding - I doubt anyone would reasonably think that you're getting the best performance out of your high-end investments. These often lead to bottlenecking the sound. Your audio cables should have the same care and craftsmanship that manufacturers put into their audio components and headphones. Audio cables are ultimately the connection to your music, and we believe your ears - and gear - deserve better.
What Are Dragon Cables?
Best Dragon Cables of 2023
#10: Silver Dragon Network Cable
Cable design: High speed, low latency, and low jitter perfect bit rate communication between these audio components can be maximized by using solid core silver conductors. The Silver Dragon Ethernet cable utilizes 8 solid core 99.999% pure silver 26AWG Teflon insulated conductors. Cable shielding is required to improve the cable's performance in high electromagnetic environments. The braided design of the cable's conductors along with the 100% braided shield protects and wards off outside interference from its surroundings. The cable is terminated with the best available RJ45 connectors made, the Telegartner MFP8 T568B RJ-45 connector. They are precision-made ultra-high bandwidth shielded connectors. The Silver Dragon Network Cable provides top performance for your digital transfers and minimizes noise and packet loss like no other ethernet cable on the market.

#7: Silver Dragon IEM Cable V2
When it was time for us to reimagine our Silver Dragon IEM V1 cable, we teamed up with Jerry Harvey, founder of JH Audio. It was JH Audio who started the IEM revolution, working with bands you know and love. After two years of research and development, we unveiled the Silver Dragon IEM V2 cable. The V2 includes all the sonic strengths of our original Silver Dragon IEM cable with an enhanced level of resolution and detail. It is not an overly forward or bright-sounding cable. It is extremely smooth and clean with an accurate reflection of the music, making it a non-fatiguing option for mastering and reference sound. The bass is tight and well-controlled, with more layers of resolution than any other cable we have produced. Compatible with all genres, the Silver Dragon pairs especially well with classical, jazz, and other music with lots of nuance and instrumentation. If you are a critical listener, there is no substitute for this cable!
The Silver Dragon IEM V2 Cable takes a no-holds-barred approach to quality. It features eight conductors of 99.99998% UP-OCC stranded silver in each cable.

#6: Silver Dragon Coax Digital Cable
The Silver Dragon Digital cable will provide plenty of detail and an open presentation. It will provide a more cohesive sound with very fast attack and tight bass. This cable is by no means bright but also not warm. It will provide you with the best digital transmission possible for your digital gear. The Silver Dragon is fairly flexible and makes bends fairly easily. Make sure to never kink a digital cable as it will introduce jitter. We are using the WBT Nextgen Pure Silver 0102AG connector. Contacts utilize passivated pure fine silver. The body is constructed with brass and then platinum plated to give a nice aesthetic appeal. The central contact assembly is made of Ultramid® and the negative contact uses Dyneon™. The barrel is comprised of brass with a shiny black piano lacquer finish. The Silver Dragon can also be fitted with Furutech BNC Rhodium over Silver plate BNCs.
The center conductor is a 99.998% Ultra Pure Silver 22 AWG Solid Core conductor. Wrapped around the center conductor is a solid FPE center core, this is one of the best dielectrics used. For shielding, the core is first wrapped in a 100% Pure copper foil shield, followed by a silver-plated copper 100% coverage braided jacket. Then a layer of Teflon tape followed by a secondary silver plated copper 100% coverage braided jacket. Finally, an outer jacket is then covered in Techflex for good looks. Terminations include RCA, BNC, and any other custom 75ohm requirement. The connector is treated with Caig Labs ProGold Conditioning Treatment to keep the silver from oxidizing and providing the best contact possible. I recommend cleaning your connectors once a year no matter what the plating of the connector is. It will help keep the sound quality perform at an optimal level time and time again.
