Sound First

While 8K resolution and other enticing video/game features grab HDMI headlines, AudioQuest’s 48 and eARC-Priority Series HDMI cables stand out as our best-sounding HDMI cables to date.

The increased precision and stricter manufacturing tolerances required for HDMI cables transferring up to 48 Gbps mean that all of AudioQuest’s proven ingredients and techniques are just as crucial as ever.

Vodka 48 Features 10% Silver-Plated Copper Conductors

Vodka 48 features 10% Silver-Plated Copper conductors that have been direction-controlled for the most efficient dissipation of radio-frequency noise. A high-loss carbon layer, sandwiched between layers of metal around the 4 FRL + eARC pairs, further enhances noise-dissipation.

48 Gbps Bandwidth

AudioQuest “48” HDMI cables can transfer up to professional 10K Ultra-HD video. The 48 Gbps bandwidth is made possible by 4 balanced audio/video pairs capable of 12 Gbps each. The precision and tighter manufacturing tolerances required to produce HDMI cables that transfer up to 48 Gbps bandwidth mean many of AudioQuest’s tried-and-true ingredients and techniques are more important than ever before.

8K/10K

AudioQuest 48 Gbps HDMI cables have the bandwidth required for video with resolutions up to 10K and resolutions/refresh rates up to 8K/60 and 4K/120. All AudioQuest HDMI cables are completely backward compatible with existing 4K displays.

10% Silver-Plated Copper Conductors (HDMI)

In AudioQuest HDMI cables, increasingly thick layers of silver plating are applied to AudioQuest’s Long-Grain Copper (LGC) conductors to improve Noise-Dissipation. Placing the superior metal on the outside of the conductor produces the greatest benefit on overall performance—a superbly cost-effective way to maximize a digital cable. Vodka 48 uses 10% Silver-Plated Copper for its conductors.

Level 3 Noise Dissipation (HDMI): Carbon + Metal + Direction-Controlled

Traditional “100% 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 RF Noise. Level 3 Noise Dissipation adds a high-loss carbon layer sandwiched between layers of metal around the 4 FRL + eARC pairs to further enhance noise-dissipation. Additional Noise-Dissipation techniques (Levels 4 and up) are applied as budget permits to further reduce noise.

eARC: 10% Silver + Level-3 Noise Dissipation

Because sound matters, the eARC conductors in AudioQuest’s 48-Series HDMI cables receive equal love and affection. HDMI’s Audio Return Channel (ARC) sends audio from a TV to a soundbar or AV receiver for greater simplicity and flexibility in system setup. Today’s HDMI 2.1 hardware supports enhanced Audio Return Channel (eARC), which increases the digital bandwidth dramatically to support uncompressed and lossless high-resolution multichannel audio.
