AudioQuest HDMI-Carbon Details
Like all Audioquest HDMI cables, the Carbon series features a High-Density Polyethylene Insulation and precise geometry. Carbon HDMI differs from its predecessors' by adding an extra 5% silver plating to the solid-core conductors. Silver is the most conductive metal, making it the ideal material for high-frequency uses, such as HDMI audio and video. The Carbon series conveys dynamic sound, minimal distortion and features cutting-edge technology pushing sonic performance to new levels.
The Carbon series allows you to enjoy your high-end home theater equipment to the fullest extent. Match HDMI Carbon with high-end, high-definition gear and retain every bit of performance and quality you paid for. Like all Audioquest cables, the HDMI Carbon is capable of transmitting 100% of available data at high-speed up to 10 meters - including 1080p and 4K video, 3D and multichannel high resolution audio. Value meets performance producing superior audio and visual down to the smallest detail.

Solid 5% Silver Conductors
Solid conductors eliminate strand-interaction distortion and reduce jitter. Solid silver-plated conductors are excellent for very high-frequency applications, like HDMI audio and video. These signals, being such a high frequency, travel almost exclusively on the surface of the conductor. As the surface is made of high-purity silver, the performance is very close to that of a solid silver cable, but priced much closer to solid copper cable. This is an incredibly cost effective way of manufacturing very high-quality HDMI cables.
Any solid material adjacent to a conductor is actually part of an imperfect circuit. Wire insulation and circuit board materials all absorb energy (loss). Some of this energy is stored and then released as distortion. Carbon 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.
Carbon-based 3-Layer Noise-Dissipation System (NDS)
100% shield coverage is easy. Preventing captured RF Interference from modulating the equipment’s ground reference requires AQ’s Noise-Dissipation System. Metal and Carbon-Loaded synthetics prevent most RFI from reaching the equipment’s ground plane.
High-Speed Data Capacity
All AudioQuest HDMI cables up to 10 meters meet or exceed the 10.2 Gbps maximum data rate for HDMI and are approved High Speed with Ethernet cables. This means that all AudioQuest cables up to 10 meters are capable of transmitting 100% of the data required for all of HDMI’s current audio/video features including multichannel high-resolution audio, 1080p and 4k video, and 3D video from Blu-ray. All AQ HDMI cables will deliver 100% of the data required for 120Hz/240Hz/600Hz displays.
Ethernet and Audio Return Channel Enabled
All AudioQuest HDMI cables up to 10 meters are rated High Speed with Ethernet. From 12 meters to 20 meters AudioQuest HDMI cables are Standard Speed with Ethernet.
All audio cables are directional. The correct direction is determined by listening to every batch of metal conductors used in every AudioQuest audio cable. All signal conductors controlled for digital-audio direction in AudioQuest HDMI cables, and care is even taken to run the conductors used in the Audio Return Channel in the opposite direction to ensure the best performance for that application. Arrows are clearly marked on the connectors to ensure superior sound quality.
