AudioQuest - ThunderBird 48 HDMI Cable

AudioQuest ThunderBird 48 HDMI Cable


Let any HDMI application, including all 8K video-based entertainment extending to cutting-edge gaming, soar with the AudioQuest ThunderBird 48 HDMI cable. Able to transfer up to professional-grade 10K Ultra HD, it features direction-controlled, 10% silver-plated copper conductors and drains for the most efficient dissipation of radio-frequency noise.


In addition, high-loss graphene is added to the carbon layer sandwiched between layers of metal around the four fixed-rate link (FRL) and eARC pairs, plus a "global" high-loss carbon layer is placed around all conductors.


Providing audiophile-quality sonics to complement its leading video-based performance for movies, games, and more, ThunderBird 48 supports resolutions/refresh rates up to 8K/60 and 4K/120. And it is completely backwards-compatible with existing 4K displays. ThunderBird 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.  incredible heights with ThunderBird 48.


10% Silver-Plated Copper Conductors and Drains
In AudioQuest 48 HDMI cables, increasingly thick layers of silver plating are applied to long-grain copper (LGC) conductors to improve noise dissipation. ThunderBird 48 uses 10% silver-plated copper for both its conductors and drains.


Level 5 Noise Dissipation: Graphene + Global Carbon + Directionality
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. In Level 5 Noise Dissipation, high-loss graphene is added to the carbon layer sandwiched between layers of metal around the four FRL + eARC pairs, and a "global" high-loss carbon layer is placed around all conductors.


eARC: 10% Silver + Level 5 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
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.
