Solid-Long-Grain Copper Conductors: The
Audioquest Pearl HDMI cable uses solid LGC (Long-Grain Copper) conductors to
eliminate inter-strand distortion and reduce jitter. Pearl's solid Long-Grain
Copper allows a smoother and clearer sound than cables using regular OFHC
(Oxygen-Free High-Conductivity) copper. LGC has fewer oxides within the
conducting material, less impurities, less grain boundaries, and definitively
Solid High-Density Polyethylene Insulation: Its Polyethylene
insulation ensures critical signal-pair geometry, while minimizing
insulation-induced phase distortion.
Gold-Plated Connectors: The Audioquest Pearl HDMI
cable features gold-plated HDMI standard size (Type-A) connectors for maximum
HDMI 1.4: The Audioquest Pearl HDMI cable is version HDMI 1.4
compatible. This means the HDMI cable is High-Speed rated and supports transfer
of 1080p/120Hz, 4k, and 3D video; as well as supports ARC (Audio Return Channel)
and Ethernet Channel function.
- 1080p/120Hz: Supports high-definition 1080p video resolutions
with up to 120Hz refresh rate.
- 3D: Defines input/output protocols for major 3D video formats,
allowing true 3D gaming and 3D home theater applications.
- 4K Support: Enables video resolutions (3840 x 2160 or 4096 x
2160) beyond 1080p, supporting next-generation displays that will rival the
Digital Cinema systems used in many commercial movie theatres.
- ARC (Audio Return Channel): Allows an HDMI-connected TV with a
built-in tuner to send audio data "upstream" to a surround audio system,
eliminating the need for a separate audio cable.
- Ethernet Channel: Adds high-speed networking to an HDMI link,
allowing users to take full advantage of their IP-enabled devices without a
separate Ethernet cable.
In-Wall Rated: The Audioquest Pearl HDMI cable is CMG/FT4 rated for
Directional: For audio signal, the HDMI cable is directional. Please
use cable with arrows pointing from source to receiver, such as set-top box to
receiver or monitor.
