Cherry Cola Hybrid Active Optical Cable (HAOC) uses a newly developed, highly advanced electro-optical conversion module and four glass-fiber optical conductors to reliably carry 18Gbps data packages, including 4K Ultra HD and HDR, for distances up to 100ft/30.5m. AudioQuest's sophisticated Noise-Dissipation System combines RF noise-absorbing carbon and directionality-controlled silver-plated conductors to minimize the distortion caused by RF interference, ensuring a fully immersive entertainment experience. Further, for applications that require low-smoke, low-flame characteristics, Cherry Cola uses a plenum-rated jacket.

Available Lengths: 0.6m - 3m

SOLID LONG-GRAIN COPPER (LGC) CONDUCTORS

Perfect-Surface Technology applied to extreme-purity silver provides unprecedented clarity and dynamic contrast. Solid conductors prevent strand interaction, a major source of cable distortion. Extremely high-purity Perfect-Surface Silver minimizes distortion caused by the grain boundaries that exist within any metal conductor, nearly eliminating harshness and greatly increasing clarity compared to OFHC, OCC, 8N and other coppers.

HIGH SPEED DATA CAPACITY

HDMI standards and capabilities have improved significantly since DVI first evolved into HDMI. All generations are backward compatible. However, not all previous HDMI cables can transmit the full 18Gbps of data required to optimize today’s HDMI 2.0 equipment.While there is currently no 4K/60 4:4:4 software requiring the full 18Gbps capability of HDMI, some sources (UHD Blu-ray players) can be set to “up-sample”, requiring 18Gbps capability. Up-sampling often should be done in the TV rather than in a previous component — but that’s your decision.AudioQuest HDMI cables with "Exceeds 18 G bps" on the box front are guaranteed to exceed the requirements for all possible HDMI data streams.

DIRECTIONALITY

All drawn metal strands or conductors have a non-symmetrical, and therefore directional, grain structure. AudioQuest controls the resulting RF impedance variation so that noise is drained away from where it will cause distortion. The correct direction is determined by listening to every batch of metal conductors used in every AudioQuest audio cable. When applicable, arrows are clearly marked on the connectors to ensure superior sound quality. For most models of AQ cable, the arrows not only indicate the direction that optimizes metal-directionality as part of Noise-Dissipation, but also indicates non-symmetrical attachment of shield and GND in order to optimize full-system performance.
