Our take on the AudioQuest Pearl
If you want a clean, professional look with your custom home theater system, in-wall cables are a must. This CL3-rated HDMI cable from AudioQuest can be safely run inside your walls and ceilings, and will provide superior picture and sound quality, even over a run of nearly 40 feet. And with its "Standard Speed with Ethernet" rating, it can provide an Internet connection between compatible components.
Solid core conductors for better signal transfer
AudioQuest's superior build quality is especially important in a cable that's this long. Pearl's high-purity copper, solid-core conductors ensure every bit of picture and sound information makes it to your gear — something that can be a real challenge for poorer-quality cables.
AudioQuest Pearl 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-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
In-Wall Rated: The Audioquest Pearl HDMI cable is CMG/FT4 rated for
Directional: For audio signal, the HDMI cable is directional. Please

receiver or monitor.
