Product Details

AudioQuest Forest FireWire 800 1.5 Meter Cable, Model FORESTFIREWIRE8001POINT5M

For many applications, the speed of digital communication is important. Most visibly, “speed” is about transferring large files as quickly as possible, or carrying enough data for HD video. For FireWire® audio (and for HDMI audio), “speed” is critical not because of how-much how-fast, but because time relationships within a digital stream are critical to the reconstruction of the analog wave form that brings information, music and joy to our ears. Time-based damage (jitter) to this information within the data package makes the sound small and flat instead of 3D, harsh and foggy instead of smooth and clear.


  • Solid Long-Grain Copper Conductors (LGC)
    Solid conductors eliminate strand-interaction distortion. Forest's solid Long-Grain Copper allows a smoother and clearer sound than cables using regular OFHC (Oxygen-Free High-Conductivity) copper. OFHC is a general metal industry specification regarding “loss” without any concern for distortion. LGC has fewer oxides within the conducting material, less impurities, less grain boundaries, and definitively better performance
  • Solid High-Density 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 later released as distortion. Solid High-Density Polyethylene Insulation ensures critical signal-pair geometry while minimizing insulation-induced phase distortion
  • Terminations
    Precision gold-plated plugs are carefully attached with the very best solder. Through choice of flux and metallurgy, AQ solder has been optimized to make a low-distortion connection. The difference you hear between solders is a result of connection quality. AQ solder does not have a high silver content because the more silver there is in solder, the more difficult it is to make a good connection


  • 9 pin to 9 pin connection
  • 1.5 meter (4.92 Feet)
  • Solid LGC conductors
  • Gold-plated pins
  • Both signal path conductor pairs controlled for proper orientation
  • Low-distortion, minimum timing errors
