Direct-order subwoofer maestros SVS have unveiled their latest SoundPath Ultra HDMI cables which meet both 2.1 and 2.1a specifications. The cables are available now in one- to three-meter lengths starting at $29.99. As well as earning 8K ultra high-speed certification, the cables can even pack in 10K resolution.
The 2.1a HDMI specification supports 8K/60Hz and 4K/120Hz resolution and framerates. 48Gbps bandwidth ensures 8K ultra high-speed skills, which include 8K video with HDR, and backwards compatibility for legacy standards. The cables further offer ARC and eARC, dynamic HDR, and naturally support for all surround and immersive audio formats. Gamers stand to benefit perhaps most in the near-term from the accelerated framerates, variable refresh rate (VRR) and auto low latency mode (ALLM), the latter for smooth and lag-free viewing and interactivity. Quick frame transport (QFT) further reduces latency for real-time virtual reality.
SVS says the SoundPath cables are engineered for longevity and come with five pairs of high purity copper conductors and 4K gold-plated connectors. Aluminum alloy braided mylar shielding in polyethylene jackets minimize interference. Aircraft-grade aluminum shells add durability and dense-braid cotton sheaths offer exterior protection.
“Our new SoundPath Ultra HDMI Cable delivers on the same promise as all SVS SoundPath accessories – high-end materials and uncompromised performance at a price that’s more inclusive than other premium HDMI cables,” said Gary Yacoubian, President, SVS. “Just as importantly, the cables meet all the latest criteria for HDMI 2.1a and 8K Ultra High-Speed certifications, so users can connect their displays and components with confidence, knowing they’ll get crisp, vibrant video, stunningly immersive sound, and the best possible entertainment experience.”
SVS cables come with a 5-year unconditional warranty. For more information, visit the SVS SoundPath page.
