- Use Balanced Headphone Cable If You Can!Review by Wilko
Price Value Quality
I was therefore able to immediately compare single-ended and balanced connectors. Moon's balanced connector makes a great difference, with a more palpable presence to the music.
The Silver Dragon USB cable produces a more refined upper frequency than the stock cable. This is a great DAC/Headphone, regardless of the touted MQA capability, and fantastic value. (Posted on 6/10/2016)
