Good Cable, you get what you pay for Posted by: from: Quincy, MA on Made my speakers crystal clear, I understand the price point but I've always been a believer in you get what you pay for. If your gonna skimp on electronics then don't complain when your sub par belongings don't hold up over time. To be honest I was going to go with the carbon cable but I liked the blue color better.

GREATEST CABLE EVER Posted by: from: Kansas City on Lemme tell you something about this cable... It makes your TV better by being attached to it. You're probably thinking "Hey, what the hell makes this cable cost 300 some dollars and the other not???? lol??!!" Well I'll tell you. It simultaneously makes the video quality better AND more interesting. Watching low quality cat videos on Youtube? BAM HD National Geographic special on Jungle Cats. Boring Lecture videos for school? BAM automatically feeds the information into your brain in sparking double HD quality. Third reason this cable is worth it, decreases the digital load on your internet connection. I know because I am an electrical engineer, specializing in digital information transfer design. The primary reason that most people's internet slows down is the digital load that low quality cabling causes high amounts of digital noise, and the packets must be re-sent. Seriously buy this cable. In fact buy 3 in case you feel the need to be triple awesome.

For those of us with electronic erosion issues... Posted by: from: Pittsburgh, PA on I was in the market for HDMI replacement cables because, quite frankly, the electronic erosion of the gold contacts on my existing cables became a serious quality issue. Of course with gold a considerable amount of erosion is to be expected, so after 3 or 4 months I noticed what I call "color field" degradation and I had to do something about it quickly. Like most people, I never watch TV without an oscilloscope and LaPlace transform correction system, so it was of course only a matter of time before the old, worn out HDMI cables simply had to go. The performance increase with these cables was acceptable, but I have set my sights on even higher fidelity. NASA is experimenting with a superconducting liquid N2-jacketed HDMI cable that should take my viewing experience to new highs. Rumor has it a prototype is available for about $20K.

Expensive Posted by: from: on Not sure if they were worth the cost. I get mixed answers from everyone. Best buy says hdmi is the best way to hook up. Directv says optic. Who knows but using hdmi.

Top Rated Hdmi Audio Quest Posted by: from: on THE AUDIO QUEST " VODKA " CABLE is a top choice connection when using top 4K HDR UltraHD equipment. Spending several thousands on TV , Audio Receiver , 4K ULTRA HDR player or Bluray Player would go to waste unless you boost the transfer of your signals.

Awesome Cable Posted by: from: Sacramento, California on I understand that for Video HDMI cables will all pretty much get you the same picture quality but after listening to various HDMI cables there definitely is a difference. I own the Def Tech Mythos ST speakers and the Yamaha rx-v3900 and this cable sounds awesome. It makes the sound more realistic, lively, and gives it much more depth and definition then all the other cables I've tried. If you have a decent stereo do yourself a favor and at least listen to better cables. Especially audioquest cables. If you can't hear the difference then return them. I think people who say there is no difference in HDMI cables need to listen for themselves and not just go off what people say on blogs and the Google machine. Awesome cable! Love Audio Quest.

Works correctly, but overpriced Posted by: from: Fayetteville, GA on During a $4.5k tv purchase, best ever tv, this cable item was described as the best there is and the Ultra HD TV would be optimally connected". Alhough the HDMI cable works well, it showed no difference in performance than that of a (tried out of curiosity) HDMI cable that was a tenth of the price. Technically, it is possible that this expensive cable can deliver more of the digital signal than a cheaper one, but being digital, the result is either a good viewable display or nothing useable.
