I was setting up my new Sony 4K Blu Ray player (also purchased at Best Buy!) when I realized I was using a plain 15 year old hdmi cable—time for an upgrade!
So onto Best Buy’s easy peasy website, checked out cool cables, ordered one delivered free shipping to my door—“Boom”!
The right length, better made, and cool looking—the Blu Ray disc looked great and I am very happy!
I purchased one of the Sony UBP-X1100ES UltraHD Bluray/Universal Disc players and Installed an Audioquest Forrest cable for the Video side and the Cinnimon for the Audio side. The sound on the High Rez recordings (SACD and DVD-Audio Discs) allows me to hear how much care was put into the mastering process in any of these recordings. I feel the new insight I have into these recordings was helped by quality interconnects.
It has been a 18 months and I can say that it has not given me any problems. The picture image and connection is outstanding. Cable has not given me any issues. I would definitely buy this again if needed!
A:AnswerThat is a great question and very difficult to answer from a version perspective - but easy enough to address in full. HDMI 2.0 (aka HDMI UHD) was released to the consumer market on September 4, 2013. You state "Fall 2013" as the approximate purchase range/date so you are in one of two camps:
1.) You made the cut so to speak and are HDMI 2.0 capable.
2.) You are HDMI 1.4b capable and a bit further behind [introduced October 2011].
Either way, the short answer is that your cable is out dated since it can not handle HDR content as found in the April 2015 release of version 2.0a. Newer cables are already 2.2 so you'll need to purchase new interconnects to get everything out of that QLED monitor. And don't forget everything in the chain must be HDR content capable (or ATMOS, or Dolby Vision, etc.) if you want it to sound/display best. That means your Audio Video Receiver, UHD Blu-ray Player, the HDMI Cables all need to be compatible with the format your trying to achieve.
Hoping this helped.
