If you want to take advantage of the very latest technologies, you'll need an advanced HDMI cable like the AudioQuest Cinnamon. It's rated "High Speed with Ethernet," so it can carry the highest-resolution video available — all the way up to 4K at 60 frames per second. Connecting your components with AQ Cinnamon is a great way to prepare your system for the most cutting-edge features available today, as well as what's on the way.

Supports 3D TV and 4K

Cinnamon is one of AudioQuest's more affordable HDMI cables, but it's made with premium materials throughout to maximize the crystal-clear picture and sound quality available from the latest high-definition digital sources. All AudioQuest HDMI cables up to 10 meters are capable of transmitting 100% of the data required for all of HDMI's current audio/video features including 1080p and 4K video, 3D video from Blu-ray, and multichannel high-resolution audio.

AudioQuest Cinnamon 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.

Silver-plated solid core conductors for better signal transfer

AudioQuest is known for their superior build quality, and their Cinnamon HDMI cables are no exception. They use high-purity copper, solid-core conductors plated with a very thin layer of silver. High-frequency HDMI audio and video signals travel almost exclusively on the surface of the conductors. As the surface is made of high-purity silver, the performance is very close to that of a solid silver cable, but priced much closer to solid copper cable. It's a cost-effective way to build a very high-performance HDMI cable.

Product Highlights:

  • "High Speed with Ethernet" cable design
  • supports HDMI version 1.4 and 2.0 features at lengths up to 10 meters:
    • maximum bandwidth of 18Gbps
    • 1080p and 4K video @ 60p
    • bi-directional Ethernet communication with compatible components
    • audio return channel for sending Dolby® Digital sound from an HDTV back to an A/V receiver
  • silver-plated, solid-core copper conductors (silver layer is 1.25% of total conductor)
  • solid polyethylene insulation
  • smooth jacket
  • gold-plated contacts resist corrosion
  • warranty: 5 years
  • Our 60-day money-back guarantee

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The old. Onkyo Receiver, Bose 6.1 system that's 10 years old, still sounded good and was working well, buy It was out of date. No bluetooth, wifi, usb, etc... In with the New! Yamaha Aventage RX-A840 purchased from a different online retailer. Everything else is from Crutchfield. Cables are AudioQuest Pearl & Cinnamon HDMI. Speaker cables are AudioQuest Type 4 & Rocket 33 for speakers & Black Lab for Sub. SVS SB-1000 Sub (Scratch & Dent) Focal Chorus 705 Bookshelf Speakers & Focal Chorus 716 Floor Speakers. Center Channel Klipsch RP-440C. And all housed in a Rosewood 7ft x 9ft entertainment center with a 3 yr old LED Samsung 50 in TV.

I probably spent $3K 10 yrs ago and I did not use AudioQuest cables. The old system was nice, but my ears have matured away from Bose since upgrading my car system to Focal, listening to Hi-Res music files with a DAC, and having high end Headphones and Earbuds. I understand there are much nicer systems for a lot more money. But, for the money, I am a very happy customer. I would have loved to use a Focal Center, but I needed a center that could hold my TV, and Klipsch had one.

The sound is amazingly Smooth, balanced, and powerful! Everything blends well despite being a front facing 5.1 system. I get Great separation on movies, music, and TV programs. Yamaha does an excellent job of processing and I don't miss having speakers behind or beside me. Very clean Highs, Mids & Lows singing in perfect harmony...

Pros: Picture Quality! Build Quality! Warranty!

Cons: None

Big audio improvement.

Written by: Russ E from Massachusetts on June 12, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I read that this would happen and can attest that adding three of these to my home theater system, one from the cable box to av receiver, another from the universal disc player and another from the av receiver to the UHD tv has made a big improvement in the audio. The video seems brighter as well.

Pros: Delivers to expectations.

Cons: Still quite expensive

Solid Product

Written by: Tony from Long Island, New York on January 7, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Flawless performance from this Hi Speed HDMI cable! Although I have not tried other Hi Speed HDMI cables, I was not going to skimp on this cable connecting my new 4K UHD TV to my set top box. When I picked out this cable Crutchfield told me I made a good choice in a quality cable.

Pros: Well made cable and makes nice smooth bends where required.

Cons: The only con here would be in the price. But like everything else you get what you pay for.

Another Solid Product from AQ

Written by: Peanutbutter74 from Chicago, IL on October 5, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I have this AQ Cinnamon HDMI cable running from my Oppo BDP-105D directly to my plasma. I noticed a difference in all aspects of color, black levels, detail, pretty much every area of video performance. Down the road, I'll probably upgrade to Carbon or Vodka to see if there will be a difference.


Cons: none that I can find

I am glad that I purchased these to upgrade some inferior cables, and definitely do not regret it. The picture was drastically improved.

Great Cable

Written by: Moose from Goshen, IN on March 1, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These are my first experience with AudioQuest cables of any kind (I'm a die hard Kimber Kable guy) and I am thoroughly impressed. The colors are very rich and vibrant coming from both my DVR and BluRay player, they seem to add a realism that I have never seen using cheaper no name HDMI cables. They also produce a very full bodied sound to the audio side with tight accurate bass, clear vocals and a wide sound stage. I can't say enough about these cables and highly recommend spending the little more that they cost, you won't be disappointed.

Pros: Great picture quality, vibrant lifelike colors, great sound, worth every penny.

Cons: none so far

Save money and go with the Forest

Written by: NickN from New York, NY on February 2, 2011

The picture quality is exactly the same as the more affordable "Forest" model. I have tested
both cables on the same television broadcasting in 1080p. The "Forest" cable was even the
same quality as the more expensive line in the audioquest hdmi line (the "Chocolate"). No
word on the top-of-the-line "Carbon".

In short, save your money and go with the "Forest".



great cable

Written by: Eric from Birmingham,AL on January 16, 2011

Last week I replaced my avr and needed a new HDMI cable. At the time I was purchasing a few other products here and the cinnamon cable was suggested so I went with it. Tonight I needed to do a return on another product that I changed my mind about using and thought why not see if I really needed to keep this cable. I had a free HDMI cable that came with our cable installation. So gathered the family around while I switched cables back and forth and played Quantum of Solace. It was just the opening seen moving across water and the start of a good chase/shoot scene. Without even needing to linger about which cable was better my wife says "Oh man that one". It was a sharper detailed picture with better color saturation and vividnous. Dynamic whatever. Maybe sound was better, sharper too. I didn't compare that when the picture was soooo much better. So, great cable like it will keep it.



Hands-on research

What's in the box?

Download owner's manual

  • 3-Meter HDMI-to-HDMI cable (with clear plastic protectors on each connector)

Product Research


Solid 1.25% Silver Conductors: Solid conductors eliminate strand-interaction distortion and reduce jitter. Solid silver-plated conductors are excellent for very high-frequency applications, like HDMI audio and video. These signals, being such a high frequency, travel almost exclusively on the surface of the conductor. As the surface is made of high-purity silver, the performance is very close to that of a solid silver cable, but priced much closer to solid copper cable.

Foamed-Polyethylene Insulation: 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. Cinnamon 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.

High Speed Data Capacity: All AudioQuest HDMI cables up to 10 meters (32.8') meet or exceed the 10.2 Gbps maximum data rate for HDMI and are approved High Speed cables. This means that all AudioQuest cables up to 10 meters are capable of transmitting 100% of the data required for all of HDMI's current audio/video features including multichannel high-resolution audio, 1080p and 4k video, and 3D video from Blu-ray. All AQ HDMI cables will deliver 100% of the data required for 120Hz/240Hz/600Hz displays.

Note: AudioQuest HDMI cables which are 12 meters (39.3') to 20 meters (65.6') are Standard Speed with support for up to 1080p (not 4k).

HDMI 2.0: All AudioQuest High Speed HDMI cables (up to 10 meters) are capable of transmitting 18 Gbps signals, including 4K@60p and 4K 3D, when used with HDMI 2.0 electronics.

ARC & Ethernet Enabled: AQ's HDMI cable supports ARC (Audio Return Channel) which 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. The AQ HDMI cable also adds high-speed networking to it HDMI link, allowing you to take full advantage of your IP-enabled devices without a separate Ethernet cable.

Gold-Plated Connectors: The Audioquest HDMI cable features gold-plated HDMI standard size (Type-A) connectors for maximum signal transfer.

Directionality:All AQ HDMI cables are directional. The correct direction is determined by listening to every batch of metal conductors used in every AudioQuest HDMI cable. All signal conductors controlled for digital-audio direction in AudioQuest HDMI cables, and care is even taken to run the conductors used in the Audio Return Channel in the opposite direction to ensure the best performance for that application. Arrows are clearly marked on the connectors to ensure superior sound quality.

In-Wall Rated: The Audioquest Cinnamon HDMI cable is CMG/FT4 rated for in-wall installation.

Why did you buy this?

I have Directv and need high speed HDMI cable for the 4K content [ ALBERT W  Jan 21, 2016 ]
Top high end brand!! [ ISIDRO  Jan 20, 2016 ]
I only use AudioQuest cables for my HiFi needs, they are the best value for your dollar.... [ Aaron  Jan 03, 2016 ]
highly rated product at a great price [ Wayne  Dec 29, 2015 ]
I plan on upgrading my current 4k 65" Samsung to a 78" SUHD later this year and thought I would upgrade from my current Pearl cables to the Cinnamon. So every month or so I'll buy another Cinnamon until I have the four I need. Spread the cost out a bit! Maybe they make a difference, maybe they don't, we'll see in the Summer or Fall when I order the TV. [ Victor  Jan 20, 2016 ]
