A digital audio return to simplify cabling by combining the upstream audio capability into a single HDMI cable, eg for TVs with built-in tuners that receive surround sound
Definition of common 3D formats and resolutions, 3D support for up to 1080p resolution and support for many 3D techniques
Support for 4K x 2K resolution
Enables simple, automated picture setting selection with no user intervention
"The Forest is a nifty performer. Images display detailed, well-defined edges, while contrasts are luxurious yet refreshingly natural. This cable's supple motion and marked lack of noise are also worthy of note. Sonically , the AudioQuest has an open, smooth audio that packs a taut, well-formed bass."

NB.AudioQuest Indulgence Forest HDMI cables are black PVC up to 3m and white PVC between 5m and 20m.
Solid core conductor technology, conductor metallurgy, insulation material and overall precision of manufacture have all been carefully optimised to create a superior line of HDMI cables. As part of the AudioQuest's re-examination of HDMI cable design, specific attention was paid to maximizing the sonic performance of HDMI. AudioQuest indulgence HDMI series push the HDMI sonic performance to new levels.
AudioQuest begins with Long-Grain Copper (LGC) and adds increasing amounts of silver-plate culminating in Diamond HDMI, whose 5 primary pairs are made using solid Perfect-Surface Silver (PSS). AudioQuest listens to each primary signal conductor in every Indulgence HDMI cable to determine proper conductor orientation. Solid Polyethylene insulation ensures stable conductor geometry while minimizing insulation induced phase distortion. On the two top HDMI cables, Coffee and Diamond, AudioQuest's patented Dielectric-Bias System (DBS) polarizes the insulation on the 5 primary signal pairs, providing a drop in the perceived noise floor and an increase in dynamic contrast.
All Indulgence HDMI cables are High Speed compliant up to and including 8 meters and all will transfer 1080P/120Hz/4K/3D video. All Indulgence HDMI cables deliver 100% of the data required for 100Hz/24-Hz/600Hz displays. All AudioQuest Indulgence series HDMI are 100% QC tested to pass 1080p at every length and all contain the 5th twisted pair for the new Ethernet and Audio Return Channel options.
Please Note Direction Arrows:
For audio signal, all HDMI's cable is directional. Please use cable arrows pointing from source to receiver, such as Blu-ray player to AV Receiver or Screen.
