Klee Acoustics – 6.0M Handmade Dragon Reference Speaker Cables (Demo Pair)
This is a 6.0M(20ft) demo pair of Klee Acoustics’ Dragon Speaker Cables. Originally $25,000 and quite possibly the best sounding cables we’ve ever heard. We used this particular pair in the Jaguar Reference System for about five years until moving to a shorter length.

The handmade construction of the Dragon Speaker Cables from Klee Acoustics consists of 28 layers of 4" silver ribbon machined together. Klee cables are unfortunately no longer available. When you get up to lengths of 6.0M(20ft) it becomes extremely difficult to maintain the frequency response as with an 8ft cable. The Dragon very were pricey but the design is absolutely unique and the performance for a cable of this length, without the use of any electronic filtering networks, is as good as any cable we've ever heard.
These excerpts from emails to the Master, Larry Forbes, as these cables were being built contain some of the details about these speaker cables.
The initial cost to me was machinist's fees. I have now absorbed that number as a loss. So I can quote you $4500 for a six-meter cable. It's a three-week job to complete. Because of the remaining large capital investment (in parts and materials) to get it done. This cable design is a second-generation 2.1 cable. It is very heavy because I went for a zero conductor vibration design, and a 6-meter cable pair will weigh about 15--20 lbs. Even at its 20-foot length it has the DC resistance of a six-inch length of number 6 wire. This is like no other cable in the world.
I have sold some 2-meter versions in Hong Kong and Korea, and one on the east coast. Anything over 2 meters is custom and involves work from my machinist. And because I use many layers of different metals each layer has to be nearly 20 feet in a 6 meter cable, and so it's like a total of 28 layers of metal times 20 feet= 560 feet of special different materials which costs a fortune, so you can see why the price escalates outrageously. What kind of speaker cable have you already been using that is 6 meters long? How much bass response is left after a 6 meter run? I can fix you up with a cable that will be fine from say 50 Hz all the way out to 50 kHz that would be far more reasonable in price. (In such a cable I would be dispensing with the anti-vibration "heavy metal" ribbons and some layers of the high conductivity stuff, but still it would have a fairly flat response from 50 Hz to 50 kHz. My standard cable delivers meaningful response down to 30 Hz, but to do that takes a lot of metal. I have one cable I call the "superconductor" and that one reaches down to 20 Hz. I initially built it for a client in Hong Kong who kept demanding more bass response. I built a miniature version of the "superconductor" cable for an interconnect, which my Hong Kong guy loves. I sold many pairs of superconductor speaker cables in Asia, and I have one here now. The MSRP for a 2-meter "superconductor"cable is $16,000.
