Welcome @santodx5! I own the AQ Diamond and the Revalation Audio labs (RAL) cryosilver cable. I prefer the RAL over the Diamond by a small margin. Some have posted the Dragon blows the RAL away. AQ claims the Dragon has a higher level of noise dissipation then Diamond otherwise they are both 100% silver. I would try the Dragon or the Firebird which IMO would give you 95% or more of the Dragon’s performance for substantially less money. The Music Room has a 60 day trial offer on them. If you don’t like what you hear send it back and get your money. Call them for a better price. Ask for Nick. [quote=“santodx5, post:151, topic:21409, full:true”]
Trying to put in in perspective regarding better noise dissipation. I recently upgraded my XLR from my DSD to my BHK pre. I compared the cables both AQ on paper identical except the newer cable has better noise dissipation. Difference in performance was very noticeable IMO much more than 10%. Good luck with your decision and audio journey!
This is my 1st post here. I have been trying to find information on the new dragon 48 HDMI.
I’m using AQ diamond HDMI now for audio only, and im happy with it. I was wondering how much improvement the new dragon 48 has.
I email AQ directly and they dont know how much improvement exactly and they say about 10% only.
Have anyone compared it to AQ diamond HDMI? Please give some opinion.
