Audioquest Cherry Cola | Active Optical

$909.95$1,559.95

  • Cherry Cola is a fiber-optic “AOC” (Active Optical Cable) that carries 18Gbps of 4K Ultra HD + HDR or other 18Gbps data packages over 100 feet with the same high-end performance audio and video as over any shorter length.
  • Yes, “high-end performance audio” is part of the package. While many long-length applications don’t need any audio, many do, and Cherry Cola is a fullfledged member of the “you can always hear the difference with AudioQuest” family.
  • Among the important ingredients are a newly developed advanced electro-optical conversion module and four glass-fiber optical conductors for the A/V signal. The new generation active circuitry is significantly more reliable than in prior generation AOC modules. AudioQuest is often not first to the party for good reasons. Cherry Cola also employs a sophisticated Noise-Dissipation System combining RF noise-absorbing Carbon and RF noise-draining by directionality-controlled silver- plated conductor
  • For applications where needed, Cherry Cola’s Plenum-rated jacket is make-or-break important. For all applications, that Cherry Cola is Self-Powered (by attached components) makes life a lot easier than having to use external power sources.
  • As with any long-length HDMI cable, we recommend testing Cherry Cola with the specific components before installation. While Cherry Cola is even less sensitive to compatability issues than Active Equalization copper cables, all hardware combinations are vulnerable to compatibility issues. AQ has always referred to cables as being a component — this is even more true with Active cables.

Description

4K/8K
AudioQuest 18Gbps High Speed HDMI cables have the bandwidth required for video up to 8K/30 (8-bit, 4:2:0), which is 7680 x 4320 resolution (over 33 million pixels) at up to 30 frames-per-second (fps). 24 and 30 fps are the frame rates for almost all movies and many TV shows.
eARC
EARC
HDMI hardware’s previous ARC capabilities max out at lossy (compressed) 5.1-channel surround sound. Not only do all generations of AudioQuest HDMI cables “with Ethernet” support ARC, but in order to ensure superior audio performance, the ARC-channel conductor-pair is internally controlled for direction, running in the opposite direction from the 4 pairs that carry information to the TV. Upcoming HDMI 2.1 hardware supports Enhanced Audio Return Channel (eARC), which increases bandwidth dramatically to support uncompressed and lossless high-resolution multichannel audio, including Dolby TrueHD and Atmos, and DTS-HD Master Audio and DTS: X. All AudioQuest HDMI cables “with Ethernet” have the conductors and bandwidth required for eARC’s enhanced sonic capabilities.
HDR
HDR
AudioQuest 18Gbps High Speed HDMI cables support High Dynamic Range (HDR) and Dynamic HDR. HDR content expands the contrast of the image for blacker blacks and brighter whites/highlights as well as greater color saturation and brightness. Dynamic HDR (HDR 10+ and Dolby Vision for example) enables frame-by-frame HDR optimization rather than HDR settings that are fixed for the entire program.
18G
18G
All AudioQuest 18Gbps High Speed HDMI cables are guaranteed to have the 18Gbps bandwidth required for compelling features like 8K/30 video, HDR (High Dynamic Range) imagery, and eARC (enhanced Audio Return Channel).
NEWLY DEVELOPED ELECTRO-OPTICAL CONVERSION MODULE
The new-generation active circuitry is significantly more reliable than that of earlier Active Optical Cable (AOC) modules, ensuring outstanding performance for applications up to 100ft/30.5m.
