Sound first. While 8K and other compelling video/gaming features make the HDMI headlines, AudioQuest’s 48 and eARC-Priority Series HDMI cables are our best-sounding HDMI cables yet. The precision and tighter manufacturing tolerances required to deliver HDMI cables that transfer up to 48Gbps bandwidth allow all of AudioQuest’s tried-and-true ingredients and techniques to matter every bit as much as before. And, of course, judiciously applied and newly learned techniques and materials are introduced.

The 48Gbps bandwidth necessary for all of HDMI’s new and future features is made possible by upgrading the 4 balanced audio/video channels from 6 to 12Gbps.
AudioQuest 48Gbps HDMI cables can transfer up to professional 10K Ultra-HD video, including resolutions/refresh rates up to 8K/60 and 4K/120. All 48G cables are completely backwards compatible with existing 4K displays.

Further, AudioQuest 18Gbps and 48Gbps HDMI cables are compatible with all varieties of HDR (including HDR10+ and Dolby Vision), which can be found on Ultra-HD Blu-ray and all major streaming services, including Netflix, Amazon Prime, Disney+, Apple TV+, and others.
