Supports 4K video

Cinnamon is one of AudioQuest's more affordable HDMI cables, but it's made with premium materials throughout to maximize the crystal-clear picture and sound quality available from the latest high-definition digital sources. AudioQuest HDMI cables are designed to carry 100% of the data required for all of HDMI's current audio/video features including 1080p and 4K video, HDR, and multichannel high-resolution audio.

AudioQuest Cinnamon 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.

Silver-plated solid core conductors for better signal transfer

AudioQuest is known for their superior build quality, and their Cinnamon HDMI cables are no exception. They use high-purity copper, solid-core conductors plated with a very thin layer of silver. High-frequency HDMI audio and video signals travel almost exclusively on the surface of the conductors. 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. It's a cost-effective way to build a very high-performance HDMI cable.

While an excellent, full-feature & well-built cable - gave iut 4 stars due to uinwarranted high price.

Features

Solid 1.25% Silver Conductors: Solid conductors eliminate strand-interaction distortion and reduce jitter. Solid silver-plated conductors are excellent for very high-frequency applications, like HDMI audio and video. 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.

Foamed-Polyethylene Insulation: Any solid material adjacent to a conductor is actually part of an imperfect circuit. Wire insulation and circuit board materials all absorb energy (loss). Some of this energy is stored and then released as distortion. Cinnamon HDMI uses air-filled Foamed-Polyethylene Insulation because air absorbs next to no energy and Polyethylene is low-loss and has a benign distortion profile. Thanks to all the air in Foamed-PE, it causes much less of the out-of-focus effect common to other materials.

High Speed Data Capacity: All AudioQuest HDMI cables up to 10 meters (32.8') meet or exceed the 10.2 Gbps maximum data rate for HDMI and are approved High Speed cables. This means that all AudioQuest cables up to 10 meters are capable of transmitting 100% of the data required for all of HDMI's current audio/video features including multichannel high-resolution audio, 1080p and 4k video, and 3D video from Blu-ray. All AQ HDMI cables will deliver 100% of the data required for 120Hz/240Hz/600Hz displays.

Note: AudioQuest HDMI cables which are 12 meters (39.3') to 20 meters (65.6') are Standard Speed with support for up to 1080p (not 4k).

HDMI 2.0: All AudioQuest High Speed HDMI cables (up to 10 meters) are capable of transmitting 18 Gbps signals, including 4K@60p and 4K 3D, when used with HDMI 2.0 electronics.

ARC & Ethernet Enabled: AQ's HDMI cable supports ARC (Audio Return Channel) which allows an HDMI-connected TV with a built-in tuner to send audio data "upstream" to a surround audio system, eliminating the need for a separate audio cable. The AQ HDMI cable also adds high-speed networking to it HDMI link, allowing you to take full advantage of your IP-enabled devices without a separate Ethernet cable.

Gold-Plated Connectors: The Audioquest HDMI cable features gold-plated HDMI standard size (Type-A) connectors for maximum signal transfer.

Directionality:All AQ HDMI cables are directional. The correct direction is determined by listening to every batch of metal conductors used in every AudioQuest HDMI cable. All signal conductors controlled for digital-audio direction in AudioQuest HDMI cables, and care is even taken to run the conductors used in the Audio Return Channel in the opposite direction to ensure the best performance for that application. Arrows are clearly marked on the connectors to ensure superior sound quality.

Advice of assistant. [ JOHN  Aug 18, 2016 ]
The tech adviser strongly recommended that I needed to upgrade to the best hdmi chord (AudioQuest Cinnamon 2 meters/6.6 feet) they had available in order to fully enjoy the 4K experience that my Samsung un48js9000fxza curved TV offered. He was extremely professional and knowledgeable so I decided to trust his expertise. [ carol  Jul 15, 2016 ]
because of the quality [ ROBERT A  Apr 01, 2016 ]
high quality cable [ Philip  Mar 05, 2016 ]
Excellent value for the money. This cable delivers the best performance for the dollar spent. You can buy more expensive cables, but the difference in performance is incrementally better. Save your money. [ Jesse  Feb 25, 2016 ]
I plan on upgrading my current 4k 65" Samsung to a 78" SUHD later this year and thought I would upgrade from my current Pearl cables to the Cinnamon. So every month or so I'll buy another Cinnamon until I have the four I need. Spread the cost out a bit! Maybe they make a difference, maybe they don't, we'll see in the Summer or Fall when I order the TV. [ Victor  Jan 20, 2016 ]
Good past experience. [ Ricky  Nov 04, 2016 ]
Cable brand and reliability [ Alex  Oct 08, 2016 ]
Because Crutchfield suggested and why buy an expensive tv and cheap out on the cables. This is what Crutchfield does. [ Alan  Mar 13, 2016 ]
