I know there are a lot of pros and cons about which cables are better and do the higher end cables really make a difference. Just replaced a Monster cable with these, and I have to tell you, the store rep was right on the money. This cable blew away the Monster. My wife even asked me if I did something to the tv, that it looked better. No more ghosting and the blacks and whites are more defined. I'm sold ! Thanks Best Buy for the advice.

Definantly made a differance!!
Posted by: Robert90210 from: on
Before I bought this cable, I bought a cheap HDMI cable due to all of the know it alls bragging how all HDMI cables are the same.. Not true!! I had a cheap 6' cable and everytime I changed channels on my Comcast catv box there would be a brief moment of pixelation.. Once I installed the cinnamon HDMI cable this immediatley went away.. HD looked much crisper.. My TV is a newer 3D Panasonic w/HDMI 1.4 jacks.. This cable handles the speed flawlessly.. The picture looks great.. I also have this cable on my 3D Blu Ray player.. Again, a huge differance in picture quality from my cheaper cables.. A friend of mine bought the Forest and he said he had the pixelation.. I told him to take the Forest back and try the Cinnamon.. It solved his problem as well, and he's been thanking me ever since.. Get these cables, they are 100% worth it.

Does what it is supposed to but not sure if needed
Posted by: TechFan from: on
I believe I was suckered into buying this expensive cable when purchasing a 4k TV. When I asked if my new Samsung 4K tv came with an HDMI, he said yes, but I would need a special HDMI in order to get the full potential. By this point, I was already a few thousand dollars into my purchase, therefore I wasn't going to turn back so I added these expensive wires.
When I got home I did my research and found out that basically any HDMI cable that says High Speed HDMI, will support 4k. Also, that the more expensive variety are only really necessary when your TV is a far distance from the equipment.
I feel that I was suckered into an extra $100 worth of cords.

Even better cables than the Forest!!
Posted by: kjsaywhat from: Anchorage, AK on
Originally got the Forest 2m HDMI cables to use with my blu ray player. They are amazing cables!! Don't get me wrong at all. But, I recently got a brand new LED 120hz HDTV and decided to use the Forest HDMI cable for my HD DVR Cable Box. Looks great with it!!
So, after researching and reading online reviews. I settled on buying a new pair of Cinnamon HDMI cables. What a huge difference. Like one of the other reviewers said,"Like Night and Day!" It is...Don't let others lead you to believe that cables are cables. With all the new advancements in HDTV's you truly need a faster cable to handle the 120hz on up to 600hz HDTV's. And this is a newer 1.4 cable!!
I am amazed at the color rendition across the whole spectrum. The contrast is amazing, the shadows are realistic, the blacks are nice and dark where they are suppose to be now. And the brights are natural and not overdriven.
I would easily tell my friends and family if they are planning on buying a new 120hz, 240hz, or even a 480hz LCD or LED-LCD or plasma to invest in these great cables!!

WOW...What a difference
Posted by: rcesp1 from: St. Pete, FL on
I was a little skeptical about trying these cables and my rep advised me on the tech aspect of the cable so I decided to go with it. He advised me that if you don't like it bring them back and get your money back.
Keep in mind that I have been a life long fan of Monster and have always used them until this point. What a difference! I could immediately notice the difference. But the true test was when my gf came home she asked what I had done to the TV because the HD channels appeared so much sharper and she didn't even know I had upgraded the cables.
I was sold! At this point I would recommend anyone to try these cables (Audio Quest $89 - Monster $200 plus) you do the math and if you're not happy bring them back. You will not be disappointed.

expensive but i notice a difference
Posted by: snowdtiftnh from: Manchester NH on
i have a pioneer elite reciever 2010 model. an with belkin pure av cables the colors are good the sound is good to fair, the speed is not fast i notice the time it takes when you scrol through menu tabs, or gaming seems jittery. then i picked up a monster cable from walmart for 35 bucks. terrible cable, worse then the belkin, at least the 25 dollar belkin cable held its own in the color department, the monster cable did apear to satisfy the speed as far as scrolling through menu tabs and gaming but i lost alot of color saturation. i had to increase my color settings on my tv. then i decided to fully upgrade my hdmi cables with these audioquest. i notice the color returned , i notice apart from the other cables that the blacks and shades are much more amplified, i notice more color spectrum, but minimally noticable.the (low jitter) audio claim seems to be true as far as my observation. i notice the audio is slightly smoother but keep in mind i am using the pioneer elite which does a good job with the audio on its own. but i do notice a dramatic improvement with audio and the bass tones are much more true and smooth. overall the audio is a step better then previous cables. the gameplay is smooth when i look around in a first person shooter game the movement is much more progressive and smoother , the gameplay is smoother and movement is smoother. its not going to make your tv work betteer , its not going todouble your audio experience its not going to wow you , but it will put the audio and video where it should be with the equipment you provide. it will place the audio and video"where it should be". if you have lower end tv or lower end reciever then i do not recomend these cables for audio or video. however if you have a lower end tv but want smooth game play i do reccomend this cable despite the lower end tv, you will help your gaming by providing a faster communication between your tv and the gaming console.

Another great HDMI from Audioquest
Posted by: mdthompson from: reno nv. on
I purchased the AudioQuest Cinnamon 6-5/9' as an HdmI cable for my dish reciever wanting a good high quality cable at a better price then the Choclate HdmI cable of witch I own three for bluray players and video game units. The Chinnamon did not disapoint still super high build quality and a great video/audio reproduction. Audioquest uses silver as its conducter material being much better then gold in its conducter abilities. Just like all Audioquest cables a great buy for the Audiphile/Videophile out there.

A well-made, mid-priced HDMI 2.0 cable
Posted by: EvilBoffin from: NC on
High-speed HDMI 2.0 cables with HDCP 2.2 compatibility are required for the new HDR 4K TV's. Yes, these are digital signals that should not degrade or be terribly affected by the 'quality' of a cable, or how much silver content is used to make it... BUT - I tried using cheap HDMI cables with my 10-year old 1080P TV, and definitely experienced artifacts and dropouts until I installed a higher-grade cable, even on this simpler signal that should work with lower signal-to-noise ratios than 4K will ever tolerate. Also, my older TV will lose compliance with DirecTV DVR more often with the cheap cable, requiring reboot of the TV to regain video connection.
This cable was purchased alongside a new 4K TV, and has worked wonderfully since purchase. NO noticeable cable-related noise issues so far, or losing compliance with the same DVR's copy protection circuitry, either.
So all I can tell you is - - I am satisfied with this product, and feel it is a justifiable price when you are pairing it with a new, state-of-the-art 4K TV. I do, however, doubt there is much (if any) reason to spend more for a comparable length, high-speed HDMI cable - even from AudioQuest.
Hope that helps.....

Night & Day.
Posted by: matrixixix from: Eastchester NY on
Replaced my old Monster cables with these and the difference is night and day. No idea how people can say there is no difference. The main difference comes with the quality of build and connectors. These exceed on every level. This is my first run with Audioquest and I am overly satisfied. I will be buying their speaker cables too.

Outperforms Monster "THX Certified" 1000 series by a landslide, especially in the audio department. Picture wise you must first have a blu-ray player outputting better than 16bit deep color reproduction or you should be buying a $20 cable. A little high on price as the majority of folks have a run of the mill blu-ray player or havn't adjusted the settings on their curent one. Great for Blu-ray to receiver-receiver to TV. Also I have seen in many other reviews people are plugging in the wrong end. Audioquest cables move your video and audio signals in a specific direction, follow the arrows on the cable head.
