      Yes it is. Thanks to the superior solid conductors and the superior insulation Pearl will provide better performance than a "generic" HDMI cable.

      Answer

      In most, if not all, parts of the US a cable must meet or exceed the local building code in order to be installed behind drywall. A cable that complies with this CL-3 or CMG code is an "in-wall" cable.

      Answer

      Hello, I think you are asking about the difference between the AudioQuest Pearl and Cinnamon HDMI cables. The main difference is the metal that is used for the signal conductors inside the cable. Both cables will use solid conductors made out of Long Grain Copper. The Cinnamon HDMI cable then adds 1.25% silver plating to the outside of those conductors. Silver being a more conductive metal than even the very good copper is, will help reduce the number of errors in the signal path. This has a notable impact on sound quality and for video when passing higher resolution signals over longer distances.

      For the best results, the arrows should point away from the cable box, towards the TV.
