Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
I read numerous reviews of people having trouble getting ARC to work properly. I bought all new home theater equipment but have never had ARC before. I bought the Carbon cable thinking it would increase my odds of a successful ARC connection. It did. The receiver synced up immediately to the TV. All the devices plugged into the receiver including a 4K Blu Ray, cable box and Roku Ultra work perfectly. Audio and video are outstanding with this cable. Maybe the ARC connection would have worked fine without the Carbon cable but you cannot underestimate the importance of high quality interconnect cables for such a critical connection.
Pros: Workmanship, quality, performance
Cons: Not a con but this is one hefty cable. Bigger diameter cable than AudioQuest Chocolate. Still flexible but need to accomadate it.
