I was a skeptic...
Posted by: DrJones35 from: Virginia on
These are my third set of HDMI cables used in HT my setup. The first was Monoprice. They worked just fine and were very cheap. Then I upgraded to Monster 1000 series and I noticed better audio performance. Then I took a fairly pricey leap to the AQ Carbon line. I didn't want to notice a difference. I didn't. But I did. I could not ask for better performance from the cable. Picture is sharp, audio is crisp and the motion is smooth. Anyone with a higher end TV should use these and see the difference. I went with them due to their higher silver content and I truly believe this is where the AQ lineup gets REALLY good. I now need to get a better TV as these cables show of the lack of processing on my 4 year old Samsung plasma.

Superior to standard cable, worth the extra cost
Posted by: Fikey from: Wilton, CT on
We purchased this mid-range cable for our new Samsung TV. I installed an inexpensive cable for comparison purposes and found the AudioQuest cable to be worth the extra cost. Compared to the cost of the TV, its an incremental expense that improves the viewing experience.

DO NOT LISTEN TO PEOPLE ON WEB AND YOUTUBE!!!
Posted by: Lazerline19 from: on
I fell for the people who claimed to be in the industry entire lives and professional web companies to show testing and explanations on how hdmi is a huge scam to make money off gullible suckers. Listen don't make that mistake like me. I tested audioquest cinnamon,carbon and monster black platinum. first of all the audioquest cables blew away monster. Second of all what are these companies and people online looking at when they say all cables are exactly the same I don't get it. Anyone with half a brain can see and hear the difference. Ok let me explain it like this, so they say all hdmi is the same right, so your telling me a mcdonalds mass produced chemical and hormone infused pretend beef hamburger is the same as a 100% real chuck USDA prime burger from a 5 star restaurant? think about that for a minute, compare your cheap 3 dollar out of country hdmi cable that's mass produced with much cheaper parts and lack of technology to a quality man made higher quality parts hdmi and tell me you don't see a difference or hear a difference please give me a break!!! I beg you to go buy audioquest vodka specifically that cable which is currently just under $300 and compare it to a hong kong $3 hdmi and watch and hear how amazing the vodka is. LISTEN IF I CAN SAVE JUST A FEW PEOPLE FROM NOT BELIEVING THAT ALL HDMI CABLES ARE THE SAME THEN I CAN SLEEP EASIER. If you have a 4k tv or a high end 1080p tv and or a expensive sound system buy the vodka cable now!!! You willl be saying or thinking thank goodness I read and listened to that review I PROMISE YOU!!!!

Just gets better with every upgrade.....
Posted by: ONI from: Fairfield, California on
I bought the Cinnamon cable and saw a huge difference in picture quality. I use to have just regular cheap Dynex cable before and trust me the Audioquest cables make a huge impact on how we view our movies. I then upgraded to the Chocolate which made the picture even a little bit more realistic saw things I didn't even know what was there, also the sound was crisper. Then finally I then exchanged it for the Carbon cable which I have currently which even takes it to a whole new level. The images I saw before in the Chocolate cable, it even stands out more with the Carbon cable, even the sound is much richer. It just keeps getting better I'm even thinking about exchanging it for the next level to Vodka!!!!! OMG! This is KRAZY! I'm sold on these cables and I enjoy my movies, especially my action movies, the detail and sound that come out of my system is just UNBELIEVABLE!!!! AUDIOQUEST4LIFE!!!!!

Carbon WILL improve your picture
Posted by: HDperfect from: Manville NJ on
Audioquest Carbon comes with silver connectors and 5% silver. This hdmi cable WILL improve picture and sound. Those that say all HDMI are the same, have not purchased this hdmi or understand that hdmi uses electrical impulses to push 1s and 0s. Silver is the best electrical conductor. I did try Monster, monoprice, rocketfish and others and they can't touch the picture or sound quality of this cable.

Even Standard Definition looks impressive
Posted by: itsreno from: Reno, NV on
I purchased two of these cable and as you'd expect the blu ray player looked great, HD Cables does as well. What suprised me was the image of standard definition, my son was watching Nicktoons and Nick Jr. and they had had no more blur or blocky look that the Monster cable would produce. In all a great pick up. Can't wait for the third for my PS3.

This cable replaced a mid level rocket brand and the picture is better and the audio sounds much cleaner plus it looks like a high end cable even thou most people will never see it.

Unable to see a difference...
Posted by: MikefromMedway from: on
After a week of watching a variety of content and inputs, I was unable to see or hear a difference between these cables and less expensive versions.

good cables make all the difference. a little expensive but well worth it if you want optimal sound quality.

I'm now a believer!
Posted by: Benefit14snake from: on
I've always just used the cheapest cables I could find. They have always worked well. I've always been told that your system is only as good as its weakest link. after trying one of these in my system I am seeing and hearing what they mean. Picture wise, it looks amazing, subtly better. Sound wise, THIS is where the biggest improvement is. As a back story I own a 60 in Panasonic VT60 PLASMA. I also own a Sonos playbar with sub. After hearing the sound stage widen up and the lack of buzz at low volumes I am now a believer. Do I think you need to go this high end to achieve that? Probably not. But I will say this, buyer beware! Once you buy one of these you may end up spending every last penny you have in pursuit of perfection.
