I am upgrading my HDMI cables with not a lot of money to spend. i have done my research and can conclude that silver is a better conductor than copper but is also a rare commodity thus the higher price. Gold plating on the other hand, which is a poor conductor prevents oxidation that causes audio and video distortion. oxygen oxidises copper thus oxygen free copper is used. The philips HDMI cable is the best that i can afford, and they have the features of all those higher end HDMI cables with the exception of audioquests solid long grain copper conductors. i only need 4 HDMI cables in 1.5 meter lengths. Should i wait another three months to afford audioquest/QED or would the Philips deliver the results i am looking for which is reliability, affordability and performance?
