AudioQuest Forest 48 HDMI Cable
Reason to Swap Out Your Existing HDMI Cable: AudioQuest Forest 48 Supports All 8K Applications, Plays with Exceptional Sonics, Features Silver-Plated Copper Conductors
Have a TV or platform that supports 8K video? Then you need to swap your stock or existing HDMI cable for the AudioQuest Forest 48, engineered to jibe with all 8K applications and transfer up to professional-grade 10K Ultra HD video. This high-value cable features 0.5% silver-plated copper conductors that have been direction-controlled for extremely efficient dissipation of radio-frequency noise.
Plus, in addition to boasting audiophile sound quality, Forest 48 supports resolutions/refresh rates up to 8K/60 and 4K/120. And it is completely backwards-compatible with existing 4K displays. Forest 48 also interfaces with all varieties of HDR (including HDR10+ and Dolby Vision) found on Ultra HD Blu-ray and all major streaming services, including Netflix, Amazon Prime, Disney+, Apple TV+, and more.
Level 1 Noise Dissipation: Direction-Controlled
Level 1 is the foundation of AudioQuest's Noise-Dissipation technologies. Traditional shielding is not enough to guard against the increasingly prevalent effects of Wi-Fi, cellular, and satellite radiation. In AudioQuest HDMI cables, all 19 conductors are direction-controlled to minimize the RF noise that damages performance by "directing" or draining it away from the most vulnerable circuits.
0.5% Silver-Plated Copper A/V Conductors
In AudioQuest 48 HDMI cables, increasingly thick layers of silver plating are applied to long-grain copper (LGC) conductors to improve noise dissipation. Forest 48 uses 0.5% silver-plated copper for its conductors.
eARC: 0.5% Silver + Level 1 Noise Dissipation
Because sound matters, the eARC conductors in AudioQuest's 48 Series HDMI cables receive equal love and affection, featuring the same superior metals, direction-controlled conductors, and noise-dissipation technologies as the main AV data pairs.
Ultra-High-Speed HDMI Cable
The Ultra-High-Speed HDMI Cable is the first cable defined by the HDMI Forum. Ultra-High-Speed HDMI Cables comply with stringent specifications designed to ensure support for high-resolution video modes such as 4Kp50/60/100/120 and 8Kp50/60 as well as new features such as eARC and VRR. Ultra-High-Speed HDMI Cables exceed the requirements of the latest international EMI standards to significantly reduce the probability of interference with wireless services such as Wi-Fi.
HDMI 2.1 is the most recent update of the HDMI specification and supports a range of higher video resolutions and refresh rates including 8K/60 and 4K/120, and resolutions up to 10K. Dynamic HDR formats are also supported, and bandwidth capability is increased up to 48Gbps. Supports HDCP 2.3.
