(June 25, 2019) SVS’s stable of SoundPath accessories is gaining a new member. This time, however, the audio giant is giving the video side of the home theater world a nod with its first-ever HDMI cable. Crafted to support the latest HDMI 2.1a specification and graced with 8K Ultra High-Speed Certification, this latest SoundPath accessory can handle current and future AV demands without compromise.
The 48Gbps bandwidth capability of the SoundPath Ultra HDMI makes it a worthy conduit for pristine 8K/60Hz and 4K/120Hz video with High Dynamic Range, along with video resolutions up to 10K. It also offers access to 2.1a features such as eARC audio, Variable Refresh Rate (VRR), Auto Low Latency Mode (ALLM), and Quick Frame Transport (QFT), making it a long-term solution for hardcore video gamers, home theater enthusiasts, and casual users simply looking to add higher levels of performance to a 4K or 8K HDTV experience.
Because it’s backward compatible, the SoundPath Ultra HDMI cable can be used with legacy 2.0 and 1.4 systems. It’s also a great option for video sources with Dolby Atmos, DTS:X, Auro-3D, and IMAX Enhanced audio tracks.
Like other SoundPath accessories, SVS poured attention and detail into materials and engineering. Internally, five pairs of high purity OFC pure copper conductors ensure lossless signal transfer, while 24K gold-plated connectors provide optimal conductivity at the point of contact. The jacket features an aluminum alloy braided mylar shield in an HDPE (High-Density Polyethylene) that eliminates interference, while an anodized aircraft-grade aluminum shell adds durability along with a densely braided easy-grip cotton sheath. The result is an attractive, quality-looking product; if cabling and interconnect aesthetics are important to your AV rig, SoundPath should be high on your list.
SVS SoundPath Ultra HDMI Cables are available now in lengths ranging from one to three meters, starting at $29.99 each. All cables are covered by a 5-Year Unconditional Warranty.
