About the AudioQuest Forest

Designed for high-definition digital audio

Ethernet is a great way to move digital media — photos, movies, and music — around your home. Unlike other types of digital data, audio requires precise timing of the signal to produce maximum musical realism. For sending digital audio from Point A to Point B, AudioQuest's Forest Ethernet cable offers several advantages: high-speed, plus extremely low timing jitter and time delay (latency). You can count on bit-perfect transfer over significant distances (up to 328 feet without an active booster or repeater).

Superior engineering and construction

Forest uses eight solid copper conductors, and each wire is silver-plated, which benefits high-frequency applications like audio. Signals at these frequencies travel almost exclusively on the surface of the conductor. Because the surface of each conductor is made of high-purity silver, the cable's performance is close to that of a solid silver cable, but priced much closer to a solid copper cable.

Any solid material adjacent to a conductor actually becomes part of an imperfect circuit. Wire insulation absorbs energy (loss), and some of this energy is stored and then later released as distortion. Solid High-Density Polyethylene Insulation ensures critical signal-pair geometry while minimizing insulation-induced phase distortion.

Better SQ.

Hoyt from Reston, VA on 3/16/2017

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I substituted this product for an off-the-shelf ethernet cable for my (1) audio file server and (2) player. I noticed better SQ. Well worth the $$. As we all know, in high-resolution audio, it's not simply "ones and zeros" over cables. It's about shielding for EMI and RFI. This product protects your audio "ones and zeros" from interference. Your ears will hear the SQ difference.

Pros: Build quality Improved sound quality

Cons: None

Nice Cat 6 cable

It's ethernet, I know. I felt foolish buying it too but for the money and considering the money I have in the other cables, then why not. The quality seems great as always with Audioquest.

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Great cable for upgrade from stock ethernet cable. There is a clear improvement in streaming audio quality; this upgrade is a relatively low cost improvement over stock cables.

Pros: Cost, build quality, sound improvement.

Cons: None, for this price.

Features

Ethernet Cat-7 Cable: Ethernet Cat-7 is the ideal cable for fast internet downloads, multi-player PC games, and movie or music streaming. AudioQuest's Forest series Ethernet cable meets or exceeds the highest industry CAT-7 specifications. This Ethernet cable will deliver speeds up to 10 Gbps and uses individually shielded pairs to minimize crosstalk.

Solid 0.5% Silver Conductors: Solid conductors eliminate strand-interaction distortion and reduce jitter. Solid silver-plated copper conductors are excellent for very high-frequency applications, like Ethernet audio. 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.

Solid-High-Density Polyethylene Insulation: Solid High-Density Polyethylene Insulation ensures critical signal-pair geometry while minimizing insulation-induced phase distortion.

RJ-45 Connectors (Directional): A gold-plated, nickel RJ-45 connector with 100% shield coverage is used on each end of the Ethernet cable. These gold-plated, nickel connectors maximize signal transfer and resist corrosion. Arrows are clearly marked on the RJ-45 connectors to ensure superior sound quality. For best results have the arrow pointing in the direction of the flow of music. For example, NAS to Router, Router to Network Player.
