Affordable Outstanding Performance
The Cambridge Audio HDMI 914 HDMI cable delivers outstanding performance with A/V gear. Key to its top performance is its very high compliance. Conforming to the "High Speed Cable + Ethernet 10.2gbs" standard, the HDMI 914 is fully equipped for 3D TV and beyond. It is fully compatible with 1080p signals an beyond, plus SACD/DVD-Audio, Dolby DTS-HD lossless surround, and x.v. color.
Above and beyond this high compliance, the Cambridge HDMI 914 excels both at the lab and at home. Cambridge Audio measures all its HDMI cables using the 'Eye Pattern' test. Effectively, this means analyzing its cables on an oscilloscope to ensure that the digital signal is unbroken and a true eye pattern is revealed on the read out.
Extremely Well Made
In addition to its guaranteed specification, the HDMI 914 is extremely well made. Ergonomically designed plugs with cable strain relief are designed to be easy to grip. This is a great feature when you're trying to reach an awkward jack on the rear panel of a TV. They're also gold-plated, giving a low resistance connection that promises to last.
A woven jacket gives the 914 unsurpassed durability, while the oversized, silver-plated conductors ensure class-leading sound and vision. Plating the OFC cable with pure silver gives a very low resistance across the surface of the cable and makes best use of what manufacturers call, the "skin effect". This suggests that the current density is at its highest at the "skin" of cable. Therefore, this is the area that should offer least resistance.
One final useful feature is the Audio Return Channel (ARC). ARC lets you connect your TV to you're A/V receiver and enjoy both the sound from it and the picture to it with just one cable.
