XLR R1 Dragon - Special 7-strand Geometry -  UPOCC Silver and Copper Litz

R1 Dragon Balanced Cable - Silver and Copper Litz

 

It's taken a long while but the silver/copper Litz Dragon is now available as a balanced cable.  In order to achieve a balanced configuration the amount of wire in the signal path has been doubled.

 

Features:

  • 7 Litz wires per channel.  Silver and copper Litz are combine in the signal paths (Pin 2 and Pin 3)
  • As with the RCA version, 3 different gauges of Litz wire are used - 24, 26 and 28 awg
  • The Litz wire used is our own premium Litz.  This is a genuine UPOCC Litz with a very high strand count and each strand insulated in enamel.  There are around 100 signal carriers on Pin 2 and Pin  3 of this cable.  This results in immaculate detail, a great sound stage, and a cable that is very close to lossless
  • The Litz wire is supported by the wonderful ETI Kryo XLRs.  These use silver-plated copper pins insulated in a teflon block.
  • Cotton sheathing and a foamed teflon tube are used for support and to dampen microphonics
  • Double external braiding with the outside braid in the green and black Dragon colours

The Dragon XLR is a hand-woven cable from Aurealis.

XLR Duelund 20GA

XLR Duelund - Duelund 20GA Wire - Premium Series

 

This cable features the great detailed sound of the Duelund 20 GA wire with the rich tonal qualities that come from the cotton and oil insulation.  

  • Duelund 20 GA wire in a braided geometry ensuring that each signal wire has an identical relationship with the ground wires. A truly balanced configuration.
  • Cotton and oil insulation that contributes to the natural tone of the Duelund wire.
  • A hand-dyed cotton external sheath - we have opted for an external cotton covering on this cable in order to maintain the natural tone of the Duelund wire with its existing cotton insulation. 
  • The  ETI Research Kryo XLRs - this is an XLR that just disappears and lets the cable do its work.  This is very likely the best XLR ever made. 

Initial feedback from early users of the cable has been exceptional.  One user commented "they couldn't believe the difference a connector could make to the Duelund wire" when they heard this cable .   The Aurealis view is that the ETI XLR made no difference to the Duelund 20GA wire - it simply got out of the way and didn't detract from the wires performance like other XLR connectors.
