USB Audio - Connecting Popular DACs and Amps
Every piece of equipment in your audio system has its own tonality and sonic fingerprint. This what we call a sound signature and the final sound of your entire system has one as well. By carefully pairing the sounds of each DAC, amplifier, and cable, you can fine-tune that cumulative signature into the perfect balance for your ear.
Matching equipment strengths and compensating for challenges requires a careful ear and attentive mind. Dragon Cables are designed with these different signatures in mind, bringing their own tonal strengths to help balance your gear to fit your ear. (If you need a hand finding the right match, we're always available to guide you along.)
Silver Dragon Audio Cables bring Clarity
Silver Dragon audio cables are made with the highest grade silver wire (99.99998% silver) to clarify instrument separation, increase soundstage and find previously lost high and mid-frequency sounds (music). Customers share feelings of being “in” the music, hearing beloved tracks anew and astonishment at the clarity and beauty our Silver Dragon cables reveal.
Black Dragon Audio Cables lend Warmth
Black Dragon audio cables are made with the highest grade copper wire (99.99998% copper) to enhance music’s body, shape, warmth, and immediacy. Black Dragon’s copper cables provide warmth, body, and soul. Customers marvel at how Black Dragon cables can solve a headphone's musical challenges.
Blue Dragon Audio Cables maintain Neutrality
We designed our Blue Dragon audio cables to perform a bit like Silver and Black Dragon audio cables, but at a value price to help those new to cable upgrades realize and hear sound benefits before further commitment or budget. Some Blue Dragon customers never “level up” to Silver or Black Dragons while many become “hooked” on how much better music they love sounds.
