Key Features & Technology Explained

  • Optical Fiber AV conductors eliminate multiple forms of degradation over distance.

  • To further reduce RF Noise, Level 4 Noise-Dissipation adds Galvanic Isolation to the Direction-Controlled A/V and eARC conductors.

  • This eARC conductor pair features Solid Long-Grain Copper conductors and Level 1 Noise-Dissipation to ensure superior audio performance.

  • AudioQuest’s 18Gbps HDMI cables are guaranteed to have the 18Gbps bandwidth required for compelling features like 8K/30 video, HDR (High Dynamic Range) imagery, and eARC (enhanced Audio Return Channel).

  • AudioQuest 18Gbps High Speed HDMI cables have the bandwidth required for video up to 8K/30 (8-bit, 4:2:0), which is 7680 x 4320 resolution (over 33 million pixels) at up to 30 frames-per-second (fps). 24 and 30 fps are the frame rates for almost all movies and many TV shows.

Specifications

Description

    AudioQuest Root Beer 18 is an active optical cable that provides outstanding audio/video performance at distances up to 100ft (30m). Optical Fiber eliminates multiple forms of degradation over distance; powered by the HDMI port, no AC adaptor is required. Further, Optical Fibers provide total RF immunity and galvanic isolation for the audio/video signal—important advantages in the fight against radio-frequency noise. As with Toslink and other optical cables, optical fibers do not pick up or transmit induced RF-Noise. Additionally, Root Beer's eARC and communication conductors are Direction-Controlled to minimize RF Noise that hurts the performance of active circuits.
