    At the very start of a video and menu on a Blu-Ray on my Samsung UBD-M9500, there is almost always a second-long delay for when the audio comes in. Could someone please help me fix it, if possible?

    I have a completely different player (Philips), and that happens on mine as well. I think it's just a handshake issue with the HDMI chain in our set-ups. I'm not sure there is anything that can be done.

    Do I need a new HDMI cord?

    If you have a high speed premium cable that can do speeds of 18Gbps, switching it out with another one won't likely do much good. If you're using an old, uncertified cable, a new high speed one wouldn't hurt.

    I use an Audioquest Pearl HDMI cable. It says "High speed with ethernet" on it.

    That wouldn't seem to need replacing, but I'm certainly no expert on HDMI cables.

    I have Sony players which do the exact same thing. It seems to be a normal occurance for high resolution audio, which takes a second to decode. I simply start the movie, then skip back to the beginning to get uninterrupted audio. Annoying but manageable.

    In short, yes. If your HDMI cable is not "Premium Certified" with this logo, then it's a crapshoot as to whether or not it will work reliably with 4K UHD. Monoprice sells these cables at a very affordable price and they work great:
