Price is for one pair of custom interconnects.

The Silver Dragon V2 is our top-of-the-line interconnect. With a braided geometry and added shielding, this interconnect is a durable solution where noise isolation is key.

Enhanced design

With this version 2, we redesigned the geometry to take our interconnects to the next level. We still use an 8 wire braided geometry made up of solid core 99.999% pure silver 26AWG Teflon insulated wire, and we modified the braiding and added an external shield for added protection.

The braided geometry itself acts as a noise rejection barrier but we also added an iron curtain with the external shield. More often, our customers are using our cables on PC Hi-Fi systems and Pro Studios where noise is an issue which is the reason we added this shield. The shield also adds more durability to the cable for runs on a studio floor.

We chose the new WBT Nextgen WBT 0102Ag as our RCA connector termination option. We feel it is simply the best male RCA and above all others, we have tested to date. It sounded the richest during our research and development, with very clean sound with no smear that some connectors can add to the sound quality. The best XLR termination we found is the Furutech FP-601 in rhodium finish! This was a hands-down winner in all of our listening tests. There is nothing better at this price point as an XLR termination option.

We all know how the price of Silver has risen over the years, and thanks to the large amount of Silver we procured, we are still able to produce the Best Value Silver interconnect cables on the market. Because we sell direct and build our interconnects in-house, there is no overwhelming markup. You pay for quality and craftsmanship. We see this as a win-win and hope you'll give them a try and agree.

We recommend a 100 hour break-in time for the Silver Interconnects and about a 40-hour break-in for our Blue Dragon V2 Copper Interconnects.

"Drew, the interconnects sound great. The cables replaced a pair of Kimber Silverstreaks with WBT connectors. Right off the bat, the sound was much more relaxed, open at the top and bass was more extended and detailed.

At first, vocals were a bit harsh and had a bit of an echo, but the cables are still breaking in and this is now beginning to smooth out. (Actually, it's been my experience that silver cables take a while to break in and I had a similar experience with my Monarchy Audio pre-amp, which is all silver cable wired).

Right now, the cables are beginning to "disappear" as far as leaving a sonic signature, which is the absolute best thing a cable can do."

"Drew, the silver dragon cables continue to improve. They are GREAT

Now here is my problem: trying to describe the sound of audio equipment is similar to trying to describe the taste of wine, which people around here try to do a lot and in my opinion make fools of themselves in the process.

That having been said, to me the sound has an overall improved quality. It is less harsh, more detailed, less background noise and like that Sorry I could not come up with anything more profound; however, you may feel free to use me as a reference in the future."

— Peter

"I was pleasantly surprised at the level of resolution that these relatively inexpensive interconnects were capable of. They replaced a set of Creative Cable Concepts 3.0M-C interconnects, which I felt had the right balance for the D/A converter to line stage run in my system.

I have listened to perhaps 10 other interconnects in that position before settling on the CCCs. The Silver Dragons had all of the frequency extension and harmonic richness of the CCC with an additional level of musical detail."

Silver Dragon cables make a huge difference in sound quality.
I got the Silver Dragon cables to use between my Hugo2 and my home entertainment amp. If you are going to get a good external DAC, why would you go with cheap interconnect cables? It just doesn't make sense. I'm very happy with these cables.

Best Interconnect for my system
I’ve spent thousands of dollars on cables. Nordost Valhalla, Transparent, Clarus Crimson, Audioquest, custom made silver jobs, to name a few. Not to mention the cables I’ve demoed and passed on. Synergy matters, everyone’s system is different and cables play a key role in achieving the sound that you’re looking for. The Silver Dragons did it for me. Treble is clear, defined and extended. The bass is fast, clean and has body and character. Midrange is rich and real. I love Nordost Valhalla. It has all the right qualities. For a fraction of the price, the silver dragon has more extended highs, low end body and soundstage definition. I typically don’t write reviews but it would be a disservice to the audiophile community if I didn’t tell others to at least demo this cable. It is the real deal without the crazy price tag.

Moon Audio's Silver Dragon Interconnects Soar to the Heavens
Music means the world to me.My music collection is sacred to me.But it all means nothing if it can't be enjoyed.
My components took many years to assemble, But there was something missing.There seemed to be a transparent layer of cheese cloth between the music and myself.That filter has been erased in one moment of bliss.The silver Dragon has roared new life in my music and it's delivery system ,from source to speaker to me.Golden Mids. Silver clean and light Hi's . Bass that engulfs.
Pure delight from a not so mythical ,after all, DRAGON.So well made and the one component that was actually the missing link.
Thanks Drew and Nichole and say Hello to Martin,he has been most helpful.

Silver Dragons are the best! Simply amazing!
For the price these must be one of the best in the price range. The sound quality is equal to what you get from other interconnects maybe three times as expensive!

The Silver Dragons are so silent, and not just the interconnects. This goes for all of the Silver Dragon cables. There's no noise. Combined with all the air separating the instruments and the insane clarity, details you may not have heard before in your music, you'll now be able to listen to. And many sounds you've slightly heard before comes even more in to focus. The separation of instruments and the air sorrounding them actually make every aspect of a song come to live, and you feel like you are listening to the whole song rather than a part of it.

Bass is more defined, and the soundstage is also bigger and wider. In fact, everything improves with these cables so there is no point in mentioning all of it. :)

Thanks Moon Audio!

The most musical interconnect I have ever encountered
I've been an audiophile since the '70's and I've owned a ton of interconnects in my system. I must say that the Silver Dragon V2 is probably the most musical I've encountered.

The soundstage is wide and deep. I listen primarily to classical music so you're dealing with many instruments and sections of the orchestra. The V2 presents them with musical warmth but not at the expense of clarity and wonderful separation.

I could listen to them all day long without fatigue. I highly recommend these interconnects to anyone wanting a step up in musical enjoyment.

They are staying
This Silver Dragon V2 1 mtr xlr pair connects my Auralic Vega DAC and my Wyred for Sound pre.

I was happy with my previous ic's which are a well regarded brand at about the same price. But, I wanted a bit more edge to the sound as I felt if was a bit too sweet. What I got was that plus more information (precision) and depth.

My lp rig still has a bit more crispness (for lack of a better word) but it is now a toss-up between the two. I am going to explore using a 3 mtr set to go from pre to amps. These are staying.

Well Done
I bought these per the review in the Absolute Sound. At least, I needed to compare the Silver Dragon V2 to the $1k a meter XLR's that I currently am using on my CD transport.

After 5 days burn-in with the Hagermand CD disc, I was able to due a quick A/B comparison.

Solid tight bass, non-exaggerated treble, a full midrange. Sound stage went beyond the R/L and slightly forward. Dead quiet. I heard things I had not in the performance or that were not as defined in the other cables. The other cables have had good press and they are no slouch.

These Silver Dragons are very good cables and are a stand-out. If you have an above average system, they are a killer. Well-made, flexible, moderately priced.

Highly recommended.

Excellent Interconnects
I put a pair of the Silver Dragon Interconnects, 3 feet, with Furutech ends, xlr cables between a Weiss dac and a McIntosh amp.

The voices are clear, mellow mid-range and a round bass. The separation of the instruments is distinct, 3d, and fills the room.

No listening fatigue--sweet sound in every way.

The construction is impressive, well-built. These are excellent interconnects.
