Overview

Our take on the AudioQuest Pearl

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 Pearl 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

Pearl uses eight solid copper conductors, which eliminate strand-interaction distortion and reduce jitter. Each pair of wires is individually shielded to minimize crosstalk between pairs. One of the challenges of cable design is that 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.

Product Highlights:

  • high-quality Ethernet cable
  • high-speed CAT-7 design (up to 10-gigabit bandwidth)
  • for use with computers, NAS drives, cable and DSL modems, routers, and more
  • solid Long-Grain Copper conductors for superior sound quality
  • individually shielded wire pairs minimize crosstalk between pairs
  • Solid High-Density Polyethylene Insulation minimizes insulation-induced phase distortion
  • rugged PVC jacket
  • gold-plated RJ-45 connectors with 100% shield coverage
  • warranty: 5 years
  • Our 60-day money-back guarantee

What's in the Box:

  • 2.4' Ethernet cable (w/ a male RJ-45 connector on each end)

Very high quality wire looks amazing made my set up quick and easy.

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 Pearl 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 Long-Grain Copper (LGC) Conductors: Solid conductors eliminate strand-interaction distortion and reduce jitter. Solid long-grain 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. This is an incredibly cost effective way of manufacturing very high quality Ethernet cables.

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.

David, I use it from my router into my 4k tv for netflix I see no reason why you cant go into your computer with it! [ Mario  Oct 31, 2017 ]
most office and home uses CAT-6, or something slower, This CAT-7 shall work for anything. [ Shyng-Tsong  Oct 30, 2017 ]
Yep I was doing about 30mbps before I had switch now I'm doing 200 I switch modem to to help but these cables or legit [ BASIL  Oct 30, 2017 ]
Yes. Cat 7 is currently the fastest ethernet cable available for home use. [ James  Apr 23, 2017 ]
