Dragon XLR > XLR

Analog Audio Interconnect Cable

The result of everything AudioQuest has learned in its 44-year history of designing and refining high-performance cables, the Dragon RCA analog-audio cable is perfectly at home in the world’s most sophisticated stereo systems and home theaters. Combining ZERO-Tech, FEP Air-Tube insulation, Solid Perfect-Surface Silver (PSS) conductors, Silver-Plated RF-Draining Barrels, and our Level-7 Noise-Dissipation System, Dragon delivers unprecedented RF noise-dissipation for wonderfully lifelike music.

Key Features & Technology Explained

  • Solid conductors prevent strand-interaction, a major source of dynamic distortion in cables.

  • AudioQuest's highest-quality metal. Perfect-Surface Silver (PSS) minimizes distortion caused by grain boundaries and maximizes linear RF Noise-Dissipation.

  • Direction-controlled Solid PSS shield conductors maximizes drain RF noise from the line and neutral shields to ground via the third “ground” pin. The net result is powerful, dynamic, and immersive.

  • Alternating layers of graphene, carbon-loaded synthetics, and metal "shield the shield," minimizing RF noise before it reaches the layer attached to ground.

  • ZERO-Tech eliminates the electrostatic field between the cable’s high and low signal conductors, enabling linear Radio Frequency (RF) Noise-Dissipation, and uncompressed transients.

  • 72v Dielectric-Bias System (DBS) saturates and polarizes insulation, allowing clear, dynamic sound against a quiet “black” background.

  • Almost no contact between conductors and insulation reduces smearing and preserves dynamics.

  • All conductors controlled for RF-noise directionality.

Description

    Solid Perfect-Surface Silver (PSS) Conductors
    Solid conductors prevent electrical and magnetic strand-interaction. PSS Solid-Silver minimizes distortion caused by grain boundaries and maximizes linear RF Noise-Dissipation.

    Level 7 Noise-Dissipation: PSS Drains + ZERO-Tech + 72v DBS + Carbon/Graphene Mesh-Network + Direction-Controlled
    Radio-Frequency Noise from cellular, WiFi, and satellites is everywhere. AQ’s Level 7 Linear Noise-Dissipation includes a carbon & graphene resistive mesh-network, direction-controlled conductors, 72v DBS, and Solid Perfect-Surface Silver (PSS) drain wires, significantly minimizing RF Noise masking effects.

    ZERO-Tech (No Characteristic Impedance) for Linear, Wide-Bandwidth Noise-Dissipation 
    The only way to avoid characteristic-impedance mismatch-effects between a cable and its attached source and load circuits is to prevent the cable from having a characteristic-impedance. ZERO-Tech succeeds by eliminating the electrostatic field between the cable’s high and low signal conductors, enabling linear (consistent octave to octave) Radio-Frequency (RF) Noise-Dissipation, and uncompressed transients. In order to preserve ZERO-Tech’s complete isolation between signal conductors, a Dual-72v DBS pack is included for Pegasus, ThunderBird, FireBird, and Dragon XLR cables.

    72v Dielectric-Bias System (DBS)
    Insulation is also a dielectric that can act like a shunt-filter. Biasing minimizes dielectric-noise and linearizes the filter, significantly improving wide-bandwidth dissipation of induced RF noise.

    FEP Air-Tube Insulation
    Positive conductors benefit from almost no contact between metal and its FEP insulation, which is notable for its superior dielectric constant and minimal signal interference. Negative conductors benefit from intentionally “lossy insulation” — no air and no FEP helps maximize the negative connection’s different job.

    Copper-Plated RF-Draining Barrels
    Grounded Copper-Plated Barrels maximize Noise-Dissipation by preventing a metal barrel from capacitively coupling RF to the conductors.

    Hanging-Silver over Red Copper Plugs
    AudioQuest’s finest plugs feature superior Hanging-Silver (not tumbled) directly over extreme-purity Red Copper to ensure uncompromised signal transfer.
