I am looking into getting a set of cable from moon audio so i can use my hd600 balanced with the LD MKVII+ (which is coming this week)
 
there are three choice
 
Silver dragon
 
Blue Dragon
 
Cardas
 
 
I really want to get a cable  which i can use with hd650 also( as it is one of the other headphones i want to try too)
 
I usually use the hd600 for everything + classical music( 40% usage)
 
 
 
 
which cable is better???
 
 
 
what is your opinion???

Definitely silver and there is one for sale in the forums right now.
I have the Blue and use it with my K702s and it definitely makes the phones darker; I think right now it's a mix of the HD600s and stock k702s (haven't heard 600s though).

Oooh ok; didn't see that lol. But yea that's a lot of money haha... if you have the money then more power to you :)
 
Yea it can get pretty expensive though; I can attest to the quality of Moon-Audio's stuff though; VERY well built :)

Just email Drew (at moon audio)  and ask him.  He gives good advice.

After many, many cables over the years, Cardas is the only one that pushed my rig to new levels.  The other cables do sound great, but mainly by getting out of the way, the Cardas cables seem to contribute their own magic to the party.  It works in my rig and to my ears.  I would go with whatever you and Drew talked about, he knows his stuff.
