Pearl HDMI embodies all of AudioQuest’s core philosophies on cable design. It employs solid long-grain copper conductors, Solid high-density polyethylene insulation, and precise geometry. Specific attention has been paid to maximizing the performance of HDMI, and indeed, AudioQuest’s HDMI cables push sonic performance to new levels.
Solid conductors eliminate strand-interaction distortion allowing a smoother and clearer sound than cables using regular OFHC (Oxygen-Free High-Conductivity) copper.
Pearl HDMI uses air-filled Foamed-Polyethylene Insulation because air absorbs next to no energy and Polyethylene is low-loss and has a benign distortion profile. Thanks to all the air in Foamed-PE, it causes much less of the out-of-focus effect common to other materials.
All AudioQuest HDMI cables up to 8 meters are guaranteed to exceed the requirements for all possible HDMI 2.0/HDCP 2.2 data streams, including 4K UltraHD, HDR, and Blu-ray Ultra HD.
AudioQuest Pearl makes use of Active Frequency-Equilization to enable full 18Gbps/4K UltraHD performance from 10 to 15 meters.
All AudioQuest HDMI cables up to 10 meters are rated High Speed with Ethernet
All audio cables are directional. Arrows are clearly marked on the connectors to ensure superior sound quality.
Active frequency-equalization enables 18Gbps over long distances.
