Product Research


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 better performance.

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 signal transfer.

In-Wall Rated: The Audioquest Pearl 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 from source to receiver, such as set-top box to receiver or monitor.

50 ft. HDMI cord

Written By Egon, Bronx, NY on Thursday, July 03, 2014

The Crutchfield team recommend this 50 ft. HDMI pearl audio quest cord. Now cable company tells me that I have a weak signal going from the cable box to the tv. The only option I can think of is to open my wall and replace it with a better HDMI cord, not from Crutchfield.

Pros: There is no pro. Poor quality

Cons: Crutchfield does not know their product

Crutchfield response on Wednesday, July 09, 2014 Thanks for your review. HDMI problems can be tricky because there are several different causes and solutions to consider. Our tech support team is always eager to help our customers sort through all of the possibilities. Sometimes it takes more than one try.
