AudioQuest Diamond HDMI Cable
Diamond HDMI incorporates AudioQuest’s highest-performance, lowest-distortion Perfect-Surface Silver conductors. Silver is known for its high conductivity and its “colorless” sonic presentation.
0.6m to 15.0m (49 Feet) Carry Full HDMI 2.0 4K + HDR, 18Gbps. 10.0m - 15.0m Active
The HDMI standard was created to transfer uncompressed digital audio and video. HDMI cables many internal conductors include communication channels, which allow automatic display and source matching for resolution, format and aspect ratio.
To transfer full-resolution 1080p video requires using the HDMI interface. Component video outputs are limited to 720p or 1080i.
Standard Speed HDMI cable will at-minimum transfer 1080i, 720p, 1080p/30Hz source material.
High Speed HDMI cable will in addition transfer 1080p/120Hz, 4K, 3D video.
With Ethernet HDMI cable (with HEC) includes conductors for bi-directional Ethernet communication. Ethernet capability is independent of Speed capability.
72V Dielectric-Bias System (DBS) saturates and polarizes insulation, greatly reducing
Solid 100% PSS Silver conductors eliminate inter-strand distortion and reduce jitter.
HD Polyethylene composition optimized to ensure critical signal-pair geometry.
State-of-the-art HDMI standard size connectors featuring Direct-Silver contacts.
Fifth twisted-pair for Ethernet and to enable additional Audio Return Channel options.
All signal conductors controlled for digital-audio direction. To for main signal, From for Audio Return Channel (audio from TV to AV receiver).
SOLID 100% PERFECT-SURFACE SILVER (PSS) CONDUCTORS:
Perfect-Surface Technology applied to extreme-purity silver provides unprecedented clarity and dynamic contrast. Solid conductors prevent strand interaction, a major source of cable distortion. Extremely high-purity Perfect-Surface Silver minimizes distortion caused by the grain boundaries that exist within any metal conductor, nearly eliminating harshness and greatly increasing clarity compared to OFHC, OCC, 8N and other coppers.
Any solid material adjacent to a conductor is actually part of an imperfect circuit. Wire insulation and circuit board materials all absorb energy (loss). Some of this energy is stored and then released as distortion. Diamond HDMI uses air-filled Foamed-Polyethylene Insulation because air absorbs next to no energy and Polyethylene is low-loss and has a benign distortion profile. Thanks to all the air in Foamed-PE, it causes much less of the out-of-focus effect common to other materials.
CARBON-BASED 3-LAYER NOISE-DISSIPATION SYSTEM (NDS):
100% shield coverage is easy. Preventing captured RF Interference from modulating the equipment’s ground reference requires AQ’s Noise-Dissipation System. Metal and Carbon-Loaded synthetics prevent most RFI from reaching the equipment’s ground plane.
