ThunderBird eARC features 10% Silver eARC conductors and Ground-Reference conductors with Level-5 Noise Dissipation.
For systems that use a TV’s eARC/ARC output as the audio source, AudioQuest’s eARC-Priority models offer world-class performance at the friendliest possible prices.
AudioQuest eARC-Priority cables are full 48-Series HDMI cables with the 48Gbps bandwidth required for 8K-10K video and all the latest video features. While the main A/V data pairs have Cinnamon-level performance (Forest 48’s solid 0.5% Silver + Carbon & Vodka 48’s Level-3 Noise-Dissipation), the eARC data pair and Ground-Reference drain in eARC-Priority cables use all the same advanced design ingredients as their “48” siblings.
For soundbars and other ARC input-equipped gear, this allocation of design and material resources offers a superb combination of performance and value.
48G - AudioQuest "48" HDMI cables can transfer up to professional 10K Ultra-HD video. The 48Gbps bandwidth is made possible by 4 balanced audio/video pairs capable of 12Gbps each. The precision and tighter manufacturing tolerances required to produce HDMI cables that transfer up to 48Gbps bandwidth mean many of AudioQuest’s tried-and-true ingredients and techniques are more important than ever before.
8K-10G - AudioQuest 48Gbps HDMI cables have the bandwidth required for video with resolutions up to 10K and resolutions/refresh rates up to 8K/60 and 4K/120. All AudioQuest HDMI cables are completely backwards compatible with existing 4K displays.
10% Silver eARC Conductors / 10% Silver Ground-Reference - In AudioQuest eARC-Priority HDMI cables, the eARC data-pair conductors and Ground-Reference drain use the same advanced design ingredients as their 48-Series counterparts, enabling superior sonic performance at the friendliest possible prices.
Level 5 Noise Dissipation: Graphene + Global Carbon + Directionality - The foundation of AudioQuest Noise-Dissipation technologies. Traditional 100% shielding is not enough to guard against the increasingly prevalent effects of Wi-Fi, cellular, and satellite radiation. In AudioQuest HDMI cables, all 19 conductors are Direction-Controlled to minimize the RF Noise that damages performance, by directing / draining it away from the most vulnerable circuits. In Level 5 Noise-Dissipation, high-loss graphene is added to the carbon layer sandwiched between layers of metal around the 4 FRL + eARC pairs, and a global high-loss carbon layer is placed around all conductors.
0.5% Silver-Plated Copper A/V Conductors - In AudioQuest HDMI cables, increasingly thick layers of silver plating are applied to AudioQuest’s Long-Grain Copper (LGC) conductors to improve Noise-Dissipation. Placing the superior metal on the outside of the conductor produces the greatest benefit on overall performance—a superbly cost-effective way to maximize a digital cable.
