    I don't understand all of the negative comments about these cables. These cables are expensive, but they are also good cables. When I had my standard DVD player, I had a regular HDMI cable going to my receiver. The cables that came with the player worked fine. However, when I replaced that player with a new Sony 4K UHD player, those cables could not handle it. I replaced the standard HDMI cable with the AQ Cinnamon HDMI cable and noticed a huge difference. First, the colors were brighter, and the picture more clear. But the biggest change was the lack of digital noise and digital artifacts during high-color, fast moving video. I did a before and after with the new Wonder Woman, John Wick, and John Wick 2, and the picture seemed more detailed. I also did a test with Guardians of the Galaxy and Guardians of the Galaxy 2, both Blu Ray, and they looked better during some parts with these cables, especially the bright, high-color scenes. I believe in these cables. I do not think they are for everybody, nor do I believe that everyone will see a major difference. If you are already using good cables, maybe these aren't for you. Also, not everyone want's the absolute best experience, and I understand that. But to give them a bad rating because you believe you paid too much or you think it is too expensive for them is not a quality review and does a disservice to others who are looking to improve their video. I have been an AudioQuest user for many years. I started using AQ cables as an audiophile back in the late 1980's. My system was a McIntosh MX110 preamp, a McIntosh MC2505 amp, a modified original AR turntable, a Nakamichi RX202 cassette deck, and Mirage speakers. I changed my Monster Cable speaker cables with the AudioQuest Midnight cables. The AQ Midnight cables completely opened up the bottom end and brightened the music. The difference was almost overwhelming. As long as AQ continues to make quality cables, I will use them when I need them.

    expensive but i notice a difference

    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.

    Bought two things HP printer Envy Google home

    Printer OK average printer. Google home kind of disappointed I have had to spend a lot of time with tech support getting it to work with certain things and expecially setting it up with my thermostat it's still not quite right and it doesn't do all the commands I expected especially the fact that actually says on the product label that it's set reminders which it does not and I signed up for beta testing so I do hope you come out with the AutoVoice and Tasker you have Tasker listed on the Google homepage and it should not be because you can not just use Tasker you have to use IFTTT and/or AutoVoice and Tasker to complete a entire command. And it also crashed my phone while I was beta testing it so I don't recommend that it be on there. You advertised. Why did you not add Bluetooth that should have been obvious since most ancillary items like speakers and such are Bluetooth. And I'm having issues with it hearing me I'm literally sitting about 10 to 15 feet directly away from it and it doesn't hear me unless I significantly raise my voice which I'm finding very disappointing because I thought I'd have definitely a more household range since I have a completely open floor plan. Most of my products are Google so I got Google home instead of Alexa. I also have to get Chromecast so I can do some things, so that's an additional product I have to buy. I know Alexis got a extra year of engineering on it so I'm hoping Google home will catch up and I'm hoping that you provide updates and not asked us to buy new versions because it's too expensive to continue to do that. So please pass my suggestions along I continue to tell them to the technicians and the beta testers and the web page so those things would really help. Any idea on how I can improve the voice range? Or do you think it's a defect? If you can reply to this let me know. That's all for me. Have a great one. Thanks.

    A well-made, mid-priced HDMI 2.0 cable

    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.....

    Even better cables than the Forest!!

    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!!

    Fantastic performance... HORRIBLE PRICE

    Posted
    MEJ9702

    Reason for the low score is strictly around cost. I did not do my research early on, and unfortunately was talked into purchasing this cable. Product is well-made, and performance is fantastic. Picture is crystal clear and sound is great. The problem is, the $7, 15-ft high speed HDMI that I also have hooked up to the TV also looks really good. I am very picture about picture and sound quality... the slightest jitter, pixelation, etc. irritates me to no end... I would consider myself very particular when it comes to those issues. When I see a $7 cable perform as well as a $100 cable, I have to question the company producing the $100 product. And good luck getting anything beyond 10' for a reasonable price from Audioquest or Monster unless you want to double or quadruple the price (my $7 cable is 15'). Do your research ahead of time and proceed with caution.

      Hi MEJ9702,

      Sorry you didn't find Cinnamon to be a good value. There are two less expensive models below Cinnamon HDMI in the line, but then you wouldn't get as good performance from those cables. We hope you're enjoying your HDTV!

    A lot of people say that all HDMI cables are all the same and they are all wrong. I have always bought Rocketfish HDMI cables due to its quality and price than I found out about AudioQuest from Best Buys Magnolia products so I did some research. Price wise they are around the same but the quality you get is so visible. Dont get advice from the Best Buy delivery guy because he probably doesn't make much to get a 120 Hz 55 inch LED TV. I have owned many HDTVs and if you have a 32 inch flat screen you will probably not see the difference with this wire. So I compared the Rocketfish with AudioQuest and there was a big difference. Rocketfish will get the job done but if you seek quality this wire is for you. Plugging the AudioQuest to my PS3 just blew my mind away. The picture was a lot sharper, smoother, and clearer. When it came to fast moving objects there was a lot less blur. Also when I had my Rocketfish cable my TV would go blank for a second sometime while playing Black Ops on my PS3. Now with AudioQuest that never happens. Yah its a bit short for what you pay for but if you can afford a huge flat screen thats over 120Hz or 3D you can pay a bit extra to get the most out of your HDTV.

    Does what it's supposed to

    How to review a product like this? Well, here's my effort, anyway.....I bought this HDMI cable to use on my new 50-inch Panasonic Plasma TV. About 9-months or so ago we bought a 60-inch Panasonic Plasma TV that was a "higher-line" model that we use with a home-theater sound system and we bought an even more expansive HDMI-cable for that because of the higher level of TV and its 3D capacity along with the sound system it would be connected with. This time around, the TV and the sound system it's attached to is less sophisticated and, I suppose, demanding television so we decided on the Cinnamon-level. Using it, the picture and sound on the 50-inch TV is fine, even if it isn't as fantastic as the 60-inch I mentioned. I guess the Cinnamon-level is all I needed because all's well on the TV it's connected to. I think the hard part of reviewing this item is that there's room to wonder if a basic HDMI cable, which would have cost less than half the price of the Cinnamon would have been enough for this TV to give the same results. The cable company said it would. But, I wanted to be certain that we'd get as much enjoyment from this new TV as possible and we didn't want to be bothered with testing one against another so we decided not to take a chance and bought the Cinnamon.
