More details on the AudioQuest BlueBerry
BlueBerry High Speed HDMI: The AudioQuest BlueBerry HDMI cable combines superior materials and superior design to produce a superior entertainment experience. Featuring solid Long-Grain Copper conductors with AudioQuest’s Level-1 Noise Dissipation, BlueBerry is meticulously designed for enhanced sound quality and outstanding overall performance.
- Long-Grain Copper Solid Conductors: In AudioQuest BlueBerry High Speed HDMI cables, Solid Long-Grain Copper improve Noise-Dissipation and overall performance.
- Level 1 Noise Dissipation: This is the foundation of AudioQuest's Noise-Dissipation technologies. Traditional 100% shielding is not enough to guard against the increasingly prevalent effects of WiFi, cellular, and satellite radiation. In AudioQuest HDMI cables, all 19 conductors are Direction-Controlled to minimize the RF Noise that damages performance by directing or draining it away from the most vulnerable circuits
18Gbps: The AudioQuest BlueBerry High Speed HDMI cable is HDMI 2.0b certifed and guaranteed to have the 18Gbps bandwidth required for compelling features like 4K/60 or 8K/30 video, HDR (High Dynamic Range) imagery, and eARC (enhanced Audio Return Channel).
- 4K/8K: AudioQuest 18Gbps High Speed HDMI cables have the bandwidth required for 4K/60Hz video (10-bit, 4:4:4), as well as up to 8K/30Hz (8-bit, 4:2:0); which is 7680 x 4320 resolution (over 33 million pixels) at up to 30 frames-per-second (fps). 24 and 30 fps are the frame rates for almost all movies and many TV shows.
- HDR: AudioQuest 18Gbps High Speed HDMI cables support High Dynamic Range (HDR) and Dynamic HDR. HDR content expands the contrast of the image for blacker blacks and brighter whites/highlights as well as greater color saturation and brightness. Dynamic HDR (HDR 10+ and Dolby Vision for example) enables frame-by-frame HDR optimization rather than HDR settings that are fixed for the entire program.
- eARC (Enhanced Audio Return Channel): Enhanced Audio Return Channel (eARC) increases the digital bandwidth to support uncompressed and lossless high-resolution multichannel audio - including Dolby TrueHD and Atmos, plus DTS-HD Master Audio and DTS: X.
- The BlueBerry HDMI cable is not HDMI 2.1 certified and does not support 48Gbps bandwidth, 4K/120Hz, and 8K/60Hz which is required for uncompressed Ultra-HD 8K video and Ultra-HD high speed gaming performance.
- If you want uncompressed Ultra-HD 8K @ 60Hz video and Ultra-HD high speed gaming performance, then step up to one AudioQuest's HDMI 2.1 certified/48Gbps HDMI cables.
In-Wall Rated PVC Jacket: AudioQuest BlueBerry High Speedl HDMI cables feature a PVC jacket that is CMG (CL3/FT4) in-wall rated.
Limited Lifetime Warranty: AudioQuest BlueBerry High Speed HDMI cables are precisely manufactured to ensure a high level of reliability and are backed by a non-transferable, limited lifetime warranty. Proof of original purchase is required; other restrictions apply.
