One of the more commonly missed aspects of doing an entertainment system right, is one that people often don’t think is that important; your cables and connectors. Having the wrong cables could be holding you back from actually enjoying your system and allowing it to perform like it should. For example, one may think they have been watching stuff in 4k just because they have a 4k source and a 4k TV when in fact, they are not and can’t because their HDMI doesn’t have the speed capabilities necessary to produce a 4k picture. We have an easy fix for that, AudioQuest cables.
AudioQuest has many products, like power conditioners, tools and headphones, but today we’re just going to talk relatively briefly on their cables and connectors. Here is a brief quote of who AudioQuest is:
“AudioQuest has been the most significant cable supplier to the high-end specialist market for many years. With its offerings sold in several thousand outlets in over sixty countries, AudioQuest focuses on delivering excellent value and performance in every product the company develops. A company that develops tools for enhancing the in-home experience of audio and video entertainment. Be it a speaker cable, HDMI cable or a portable digital audio product, AudioQuest’s varied offerings provide value and performance to the retailer and enthusiastic consumer alike”
So, the question is why do you need high performance and quality cables? To put it simply, your connection and picture is only as strong as the weakest component involved. You could have a 4k DVD player and a 4k TV, but only have a 1080p capable HDMI, which means that your picture will only ever be as good as 1080. An example that may make this easier to understand is like putting cheap tires on a super car. The super car has a ton of power and capabilities as the machine it is, but the cheap tires will never be able to handle all the power without spinning or slipping, ultimately never allowing the super car to perform like it should. And as to why under-performing cables are a common problem, it is because the cables that come with the equipment in the box are usually poor quality. If they do manage to come with high quality cables, it may only be 1 while you have 3 different sources going to your TV or receiver. The same can be said with your audio cables, your quality and clarity of sound can be restricted if you have poor cables and connectors.
