AudioQuest Carbon Series 2 Meter (6.6 Feet) HDMI Cable - HDMICARBON2M
Carbon HDMI adds 5% silver-plating to its predecessors solid-core conductors.
Like all AudioQuest HDMI cables, Carbon uses Solid High-Density Polyethylene
Insulation, and precise geometry. Specific attention has been paid to maximizing
the performance of HDMI, and indeed, AudioQuests HDMI cables push sonic
performance to new levels.
- Solid 5% 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. This is an incredibly
cost effective way of manufacturing very high-quality HDMI cables
- 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. Carbon 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
- Carbon-Based 3-Layer Noise-Dissipation System (NDS)
100% shield coverage is easy. Preventing captured RF Interference from modulating
the equipments ground reference requires AQs Noise-Dissipation
System. Metal and Carbon-Loaded synthetics prevent most RFI from reaching
the equipments ground plane
- High Speed Data Capacity
All AudioQuest HDMI cables up to 10 meters meet or exceed the 10.2 Gbps maximum
data rate for HDMI and are approved High Speed with Ethernet cables. This
means that all AudioQuest cables up to 10 meters are capable of transmitting
100% of the data required for all of HDMIs 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
- Ethernet And Audio Return Channel Enabled
All AudioQuest HDMI cables up to 10 meters are rated High Speed with Ethernet.
From 12 meters to 20 meters AudioQuest HDMI cables are Standard Speed with
All audio cables are directional. The correct direction is determined by listening
to every batch of metal conductors used in every AudioQuest audio 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
