Hmm actually i myself have some querries about the cable. When we speak high end cable, i normally expect it to be thick, like TWcu,picollino,TWag,OCC and so on. But when i see the silver dragon cable, it looks very thin like a normal cable. When you consider the heatshrink and rubber isolator, the actual thickness will be very thin. But then again it is not braided, which is a plus and minus. Guess got to wait till sample arrives to justify the upgrade over my TWcu
I don't think thinkness is a factor here..


the one i am using is thinner than silver dragon...sound wise it gives the same amount of power for my flac files...honestly..there is no difference...
the price is more for the brand name i believe
do you have the moon audio silver drag? "honesty no difference" ? you tried both before?
i don't think its a brand thing. i would say that the Twag would be more for the brand compared to Silver Dragon. and would you rather get a Made In China or Made In USA Silver Dragon?


not trolling, just asking.

Made In China.

Same reason why I always drool at UM customs even though I'm using JH Audio. Same reason why Fiio amps looks so much more elegant than those homemade looking American amplifiers. It just looks more precise when it's done by the Chinese. Like an iPhone 4.

Thickness is a factor. Lets put it this wat in ez terms. Like pipes, the bigger the diameter the more water it can carry, but the more resistance it faces. Same with wiring. If thickness wasnt a factor, those hdmi premium hdmi cables would be a joke. Thickness, represents more power/juice.

o.o thanks for the info.
i think twag's relatively thin though.. the braiding makes it look thick.

Pipes and wiring are different. In fact, the opposite happens with regards to wiring. The bigger the pipe the greater the resistance, but the thicker the wire, the less the resistance.

A thick wire has less resistance than a thin wire, if both wires are of the same length and material.

No offence intended... just for discussion sake.

hmmm maybe the wires inside are really thick xD
that's why it's not braided.

its true. thicker cables, in terms of lower awg can carries higher current. therefore, better.

just went down to collect at stage 93's place.
turns out the cables are relatively thick after all. twice the size of normal braided cables, solid feel to it yet not stiff. definitely feels like a $220 cable..

it's not braided though, like side by side stuck together. upload with photos later.
