Our take on the AudioQuest Chocolate

by Amanda P.
AudioQuest

Several revolutionary capabilities appearing for the first time on 2010 HDTVs and HD-capable components are placing greater demands than ever on HDMI cables and connections. AudioQuest Chocolate is one of the new breed of HDMI cables rated "High Speed with Ethernet." Connecting your components with AQ Chocolate is a great way to prepare your system for the most cutting-edge audio and video available today, as well as what's on the way. Plus, its superior build quality means you'll enjoy superb picture and sound from your home theater system.

HDMI 1.4-compliant to support technologies like 3D TV
One of the most exciting new technologies for 2010 is 3D TV. A 3D video connection between a 3D Blu-ray player and a 3D TV must be able to simultaneously pass dual 1080p video signals along with lossless audio. AQ Chocolate is certified to handle the maximum data rate that HDMI allows — 10.2Gbps. It is constructed using premium materials throughout to maximize the crystal-clear picture and sound quality available from the latest high-definition digital sources.

AudioQuest Chocolate is fully backward-compatible with HDMI 1.3 and earlier cables. Bit Error Rate testing ensures that every cable passes signals as accurately as possible.

Solid core conductors for better signal transfer
AudioQuest is known for their superior build quality, and their Chocolate HDMI cables are no exception. They use solid-core, silver-plated conductors to ensure every ounce of picture and sound information makes it to your gear — something that can be difficult for poorer-quality cables, especially at longer lengths. The bottom line: you'll enjoy exceptionally clear, noise-free video and audio.

Highlights:

  • length: 5 meters (16.5 ft.)
  • "High Speed with Ethernet" cable design
  • supports HDMI version 1.4 features:
    • 3D video @ 1080p/120Hz
    • bi-directional Ethernet communication with compatible components
    • audio return channel for sending Dolby® Digital sound from an HDTV back to an A/V receiver
  • solid-core, silver-plated copper conductors (silver layer is 2.5% of total conductor)
  • solid polyethylene insulation
  • white PVC jacket with CL3 rating for in-wall installation
  • gold-plated contacts
  • warranty: 5 years
  • Our 60-day money-back guarantee

Features

HDMI: The HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface) standard was created to transfer uncompressed digital audio and video. An HDMI cable's many internal conductors include communication channels, which allow automatic display and source matching for resolution, format, and aspect ratio.

Construction: The Audioquest Chocolate HDMI cable uses solid 2.5% Silver-Plated LGC (Long-Grain Copper) conductors to eliminate inter-strand distortion and reduce jitter. Its solid Polyethylene insulation ensures critical signal-pair geometry. The Audioquest Chocolate HDMI cable features gold-plated HDMI standard size (Type-A) connectors for maximum signal transfer. The cable also has a braided cable for added flexibility when routing the HDMI cable between your components.

HDMI 1.4: The Audioquest Chocolate 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 Chocolate HDMI cable is CMG/FT4 rated for in-wall installation.

Directional: For audio signal, the HDMI cable is directional. Please use cable with arrows pointing form source to receiver, such as set-top box to receiver or monitor.
