Positive Feedback Review, March 2012, Issue 60

The Silver Dragon USB is the most resolute USB cable on the market today so stop paying for over inflated cables and give it a try. Be prepared to be amazed at the difference it will make when transferring your computer audio catalog to your USB applications.

This cable is so good compared to the stock from the Chord Mojo that it is laughable.

Much better timbres, frequency extension, and details. I listen to this every day.

Would urge anyone who is listening through a Mojo to try this.

Thanks, Drew! (Posted on 3/16/2017)

I just received the Silver Dragon USB and all I can say is, “Oh my god!” It has drastically improved all of the music I am currently listening to with my AKG K712 pro’s. I was listening to “I will always love you” by Whitney Houston…and I could hear the background echo more than before. Also, the cymbals and more of the background music popped out more.

For the skeptics out there, this is definitely NOT snake oil. I highly recommend Moon Audio! (Posted on 3/16/2017)

I feel that I am very lucky to discover Moon Audio, a small, family owned business, where I can find high quality products at a very reasonable price.

As for the Silver Dragon USB cable that I bought for the Chord Hugo, I quite like it.

To my ears, it is a very good match for the Chord Hugo, the Hugo+the USB cable present a very detailed, articulate music that has excellent texture, natural timbre and feel.

I use the Silver Dragon to connect my MacBook Pro to a McIntosh D100 digital preamp. Over the years I have bought far more expensive cables than the Silver Dragon and been far less happy with the quality than I am with the 'SD's.

I listen to music mostly on electrostatic headphones and there is a small but noticeable difference with the Silver Dragon connector - the high frequencies seem brighter. A bonus feature is that I was able to customize the length of the Silver Dragon cable.

To summarize, the Silver Dragon represents excellent value and gives your digital system noticeable improvement in sound reproduction. (Posted on 2/18/2017)

This was for me the last piece of the puzzle to reach audio heaven. I have seen lots of great feedback when it comes to this particular cable, but I have to say I didn't expect the improvement to be this huge!

Everything improved with this cable. Worth to mention is the immensely great instrument separation surrounded by lots of air. This, the improved soundstage, and the amazing resolution resulted in a sound that is SO good.

I have the HD800 and HD 650. I can see why the Silver Dragon cables are the perfect fit for the HD 650's because these cans improve so much with them. But they do also improve the HD800s a whole lot. I guess it is just a matter of taste, but I kept only the Silver Dragons in my audio system rather than Black Dragons. I experienced no listening fatigue with them when it comes to the HD800s. Some complain about harsh treble from these cans. I do not experience this with my current setup, with the Silver Dragons, so I'm happy.

The value, what you get for the price, is unbelievable.

Thank you, Moon Audio, for your Silver Dragon cables! (Posted on 2/10/2016)

My system sounds so much betterReview by Larry

I have been using a chord Hugo in my main audio system with files sent from the Bryston BDP-2 Media player. Several days ago I realized I could connect the Hugo using one of the BDP-2's USB drive inputs instead of the SPIDF or AES outputs. Using the generic USB provided by Chord the setup sounded pretty good.

I just received your Silver Dragon USB cable and now, I cannot believe how much better my system sounds with your cable!

Note: I an also using your Black Dragon interconnects that send signal to an MBL C51 integrated amplifier from the Hugo. MIT Magnum M3.3 speaker cables connect my Wilson Sasha speakers. Makes me wonder if your speaker cables would also be an improvement. At any rate I wanted to tell you how well the Dragons work with the BDP-2 and Hugo, especially using the USB connection.

Thank you, Drew.

I have purchased three silver dragon USB cables from Drew, all different lengths for different purposes. The sound and details coming out of the silver dragon is amazing.

I am totally satisfied. I will always use silver dragons as my primary USB cable. There is no equal. Thank you, Moon Audio. (Posted on 4/9/2015)
Very good cable but...Review by stevehulk121

The sound and build quality of this cable are both excellent and I have no issues whatsoever with that.

The problem, and it is not a Moon Audio problem but a USB problem, is taking this connector out and about. I think USB is a standard that has developed without the mobile market particularly in focus and robustness of the connection was not in the forefront of the minds of the people developing the standard.

For this reason the connectors are prone to come loose from the devices as you move around. Contrast this with stereo jacks where the connection is firm with a positive locking action. For micro USB to be good for this purpose attention needs to be paid to the possibility of a connection type specified to resist jarring loose when the user is on the go. If there is anything that can be done to beef up the solidity of the connection between cable and device then it would be well worth the consideration.

I am informed by Moon Audio that the issue of right-angled connectors is being taken care of. (Posted on 4/9/2015)

Thanks Drew for the Silver Dragon USB cable. My source is a Toshiba Qosmio laptop PC listening to FLAC files ripped from my own CDs in native 16/44.1 resolution at 768 bitrate. I use Winamp as my player since I've used this program for years.

The Silver Dragon USB cable connects the Qosmio to a Woo Audio WA7 and WA7tp using the built in DAC and Audeze LCD-2 headphones.

I hear much better clarity using the Silver Dragon USB cable than with the previous copper printer cable. Also, the music is more "alive" with nuances never heard before. This cable is truly worth the money and effort to acquire. It is definitely, a must have item for

anyone using digital sources from PC or any device requiring USB connections. (Posted on 12/5/2014)

Drew-

The Silver Dragon USB cable from my music server in combination with my AKG K701's and Black Dragon V2 headphone cable, I am now enjoying by far the highest quality sound that I have ever heard from my audio system.

I know that this is certainly not news to you, but I have been continually blown away by this new high standard of sound quality ever since I got the phones back from Moon Audio.

Because of this, I will definitely be recommending Moon Audio whenever the subject of high quality headphone modifications or top flight USB cables are brought up.

Thank you... (Posted on 6/17/2014)
The Silver Dragon USB cable has brought an unprecedented level of transparency when playing music with resolutions from 16/44.1 to 24/192 and it has proven capable of clearly and concisely revealing intricate aspects of the musical recordings which I own Review by Maxxwire

For several years I had been searching for the best quality USB cable to interface my dedicated music playback only, slimmed and mechanically isolated laptop PC with its Li-Ion battery powered 24/192 kHz capable XMOS USB-S/PDIF DDC. The first cable I tried was an OEM USB printer cable and shortly thereafter I replaced it with a $40 OF Copper conductor USB cable which provided only slightly better results in terms of sound quality.

Realizing that the quality of the USB cables can make a difference in sound quality I bought a $550 5N silver dual conduit USB cable which provided a very welcomed set of sonic improvements over the OF Copper USB cable which I had been using. I was so pleased with the 5N silver USB cable that I enjoyed using it for almost 2 years until I discovered the vast superiority of using the OCC Copper conductor USB cable that I bought for $130 which right out of the box gave a far better performance than the $550 5N silver USB cable had been able to and the OCC Copper USB cable went on to improve with a much more transparent delivery of the music signal over time.

Enter: The Silver Dragon...

After having heard the clear advantage that an OCC Copper conductor USB cable can bring to digital music playback I started searching for an OCC Silver conductor USB Cable that might possibly be able to supersede the already superb sound quality that my fully digital audio system had while using the OCC Copper conductor USB cable. My first few search attempts were very disappointing in that the least expensive quality built OCC Silver USB cable that I found had a $700 price tag.

I was determined to find a well built yet affordable OCC Silver conductor USB cable and I refused to give up my search. My ongoing search eventually led me to Moon Audio and their Silver Dragon UPOCC Silver USB cable and they were asking only 25% as much as the other OCC Silver USB cable I had found.

I ran a Music signal through the Silver Dragon 24 hours a day and each evening I would have a comparative listening session to evaluate the changes in the Musical presentation of the Audio System. I was both surprised and astounded when I heard an additional set of improvements revealing completely new areas of sound quality including some amazing and never heard before macro and micro detailing. During each and every evening listening session during that first week I listened to the Silver Dragon become more transparent each and every day as it moved out of the way of the music signal.

I have now had the Silver Dragon USB cable in my audio system for almost 2 months. It has well over 500 hours of use and during that time it has brought with it an unprecedented level of transparency playing music with resolutions from 16/44.1 to 24/192 and it has proven capable of clearly and concisely revealing intricate aspects of the musical recordings which I own that had previously been obfuscated by the less capable and less transparent USB cables which I used in the past upon which I had wasted over $700 before I discovered the extraordinary Silver Dragon USB cable and the exceptional build quality which Moon Audio has created it with.
