Solid Long-Grain Copper Conductors
AudioQuest Pearl 48 HDMI cables use solid conductors to defeat both electrical and magnetic strand-to-strand interaction, major sources of distortion in cables.
Noise-Dissipation (Level 1)
“100% shielding” can’t guard against noise created by today’s Wi-Fi and cell devices. In addition to all 19 HDMI conductors being Direction-Controlled to reduce RF Noise, AudioQuest Pearl 48 HDMI cables use advanced techniques and materials to enhance overall performance.
The Audio Return Channel sends audio from the TV to a soundbar, receiver, or ARC input. “enhanced” eARC is easier to use and enables lossless multi-channel. In AudioQuest Pearl 48 HDMI cables, the eARC conductor pair is internally controlled for direction to ensure superior audio performance.
AudioQuest Pearl 48 HDMI cables use Direction-Controlled conductors to minimize RF noise. For optimal Noise-Dissipation and superior audio performance, use Pearl 48 HDMI cables with the plug's arrows pointing towards the TV, or Source towards A/V receiver.

A:AnswerThe max output for the Apple TV 4K is Dolby Vision @ 60HZ. If you are not seeing Dolby Vision as an option you'll need to set your HDMI input on your Sony TV to "Enhanced (Dolby Vision)". Once this is enabled you'll be able to select the Dolby Vision output option on the AppleTV and it will work.
A:AnswerUnfortunately, this issue is with your TV and not the cable. The Sony 950H only supports HDMI 2.0 (4K, 60hz MAX). Even though the TV is rated at 120hz refresh rate, HDMI 2.0 can support enough bandwidth to go over 4K-60p. To get 4K 120hz, the TV must have HDMI 2.1 inputs and you must use a 48gbps HDMI cable (like this one). Sorry for the bad news.
A:AnswerIt does not have the certification. It seems to be working well without any cutouts. I have been keeping an eye on it. I returned the Black Pearl 18 GBPS I was using for the eArc as it experienced cuts. I replaced it with a lower costing, certified 18 GBPS and it works perfect. The 48 GBPS seems to be handling the job carrying 4k at 120. In hindsight I might have gone certified.
A:AnswerI purchased this because I didn't have an extra cord to match the Apple TV requirements. When I plugged the HDMI cable I use for our Sony PlayStations, I could not get 4k content to play on my Sony 4K tv. When I switched to the Rocketfish HDMI cord we purchased for our Roku 4k, I was able to connect with 4k and 4:2:2 video as well. I wanted to try the Audioquest cord for comparison, though the price was so high. I used my Elite plus coupons to get this cord discounted. I have to admit that I didn't think it would make much a difference compared to the PlayStation HDMI cable but I was wrong. Both the Best buy Rocketfish cable and the Audioquest cables give us such a much clearer picture and even the audio sounds cleaner and slightly louder than before!
I really like both cables but to be honest, I cannot afford paying this much money for HDMI cables. I will stick with the Rocketfish in the future. Something I also noticed when I plugged in either cable, they are a bit tighter fitting. While not a problem to plug in, unplugging was. I had to firmly grasp the audio cable head in order to unplug the cables to move my Roku and Apple TV around. If your Bose speaker requires HDMI, I definitely recommend either cable. I hope this helps.
A:AnswerI hope you figured this out, but that's the incorrect way to hookup this directional cable. The direction refers to the video channel and not the audio return channel. The arrow should be pointing away from the soundbar and into the TV.
