Pure Music – Audioquest Dragon Source – NRG-1000 – Standard cable

Some images do not require any textual clarification. Music is! Our goal is to make samples of as many products as possible. Purely because in our opinion it can be fun and useful to just listen to equipment. This time: the Audioquest Dragon Source. A high-end power cable. We compare this to the NRG-1000 from Audioquest and a standard cable. We use our standard reference system: A Pass Labs XP-12, Bryston 4B SST3, Focal Sopra No1 and the Metrum Pavane and Ambre duo. Filtering comes from the Kemp (PowerStrip 8plus) and the Isotek Titan EVO3. Some advice: use a good pair of headphones for best results.
