Harmonic Technology Audio HDMI 1.4A High Speed Cable in 7 meter new in factory packaging (three available).
Simply stated this FLAT design are heavy, not overly flexible and made of best Copper and seriously better than any other we have seen up to three times the price. These were clearly better for both Picture Quality and SOUND Quality.
Also available at great prices: 1meter reg $99 / 75 , 2 meter reg $140 / $70 & 5 meter reg $199 / $89.
This is the third in a series of HDMI cables. This FLAT cable
differs from the Cardas and Audioquest in that its conductors are copper,
without silver plating. In addition, like the Audioquest, there is an
aarow at one end. Jim Wang, president of Harmonic Technology, informed
me that directionality is important for lengths greater than 7 meters.
Lengths less than 7 meters do not impact the sound regardless of
Since this is the third review of HDMI cable, I wanted to include an
explanation as to the reason(s) for auditioning these cables.
Essentially, it is in response to PS Audio’s assertion that its power
wave transport and dac is optimized, sonically when using I2S via HDMI.
According to Steve Nugent of Empirical Audio, PS Audio uses the HDMI
connector for their differential I2S, having nothing to do with the HDMI
spec. They are just using the connector. A technician at PS Audio has
stated that the quality of the shielding and conductors affects noise,
and that two HDMI cables may reveal differences in frequency response,
but the latter has not been tested by him. I believe that if there were
no difference in the performance of HDMI cables when using their digital
hardware, eventually such information would be revealed to the user.
I applied the same break-in procedue as used for the Audioquest and
Cardas cables, namely, 1 week (about 42 hours) from cable box to TV,
followed by 24 hours of a signal between transport and DAC.
Cable Construction < =============================================== >
Metal is all copper, 22 strands. Gauge is 24AWG. Geometry satisfies the
1.4 specification. Dielectic is polyethylene. Connectors are gold plated
copper. Conductors are soldered to connectors using silver solder. Jim
Wang suggested that silver plating exaggerates the impact of the skin
