Moon Audio received this question early this morning and we are hoping some others out there may have needed the same information hence why we are sharing it on our blog this morning. ¬†ūüôā

Here’s the customer’s question:¬†

Hi, Drew.  I was hoping you could explain any difference, if one exists, between the Blue Dragon Portable Mini Cable (mini-RCA) and the Blue Dragon Portable Interconnect?  Would any differences that may exist influence sound quality?  Thanks so much for your help.

Electronic, Rap, Techno Music Lover's Dream Cable
This is the New Blue Dragon version 2 portable player cable. It can be used to connect portable cd players, IPods, etc. to your Headphone Amps or to any audio system without any loss of quality to your signal.
If you listen to Rock, Alternative, Rap or Techno etc, then this is the cable for you.

Drew’s Answer: ¬†

The Blue Dragon Portable Interconnect uses twice the wire as the Blue DragonV3 Portable Mini Cable.  The Blue Dragon V3 Portable Mini Cable utilizes an entire run of Blue Dragon V3 wire where as the Blue Dragon Portable Interconnect Cable utilizes a single run for both channels.  The Blue Dragon Portable Mini Cable is more flexible for smaller systems where tight spaces are a constraint.  The Blue Dragon Portable Interconnect is recommended for the home system where the highest quality is desired and flexibility and ergonomics are not a concern. The Blue Dragon Portable Interconnect has less channel interference since the  right and left signals are separate and the result is better clarity and definition and a little more bottom end weight to the sound.  The same basic definition can be said for the Silver Dragon V3 Portable Interconnect versus the Blue Dragon V3 Portable Mini Cable.

    1. The Blue Dragon Portable Mini Cable is typically for use with portable systems. It uses 2 conductors plus a shield for each channel in a single jacketed cable. Because it uses a single cable structure it is more flexible for portable uses. That is not to say it can not be used for a desktop or home set up. Where as the Blue Dragon Portable Interconnect was designed more for desktop and home use. It utilizes two independent cable runs utilizing a quad 4 conductor pattern for each the left or right channel. Thus right and left signal fields are independent of influence on each other. It is the sonically superior cable. The signal is more in focus resulting in better dynamics and detail. Both cables are on the neutral/natural sound signature side of things. Wonderful mid-range and clarity.
