RE: ThatCable HDMI vs Audioquest Pearl

no tvs fine just needed a little more from it and the wire world did it for me.im not a calibrater,may be a someone with calibration skills could of got the blacks i wanted out of my tv but i not.so the cable worked for me and motion just a little better than what it was,meaning that things looked more real.it also gave me a polished look to the picture,got rid of some grain.i have a 60"tv and sit about 3 meters away so i see eveything and this cable made it work for me love it

RE: ThatCable HDMI vs Audioquest Pearl

If there's no difference in performance between HDMI cables, then recommending the That cable which costs £5 seems daft too - there are plenty available on very well known websites for under a Quid. 

There seems to be a bit of hypocrisy going on here - if all HDMI cables are equally as good, why recommend that the OP spends £5 on a particular cable when there are plenty out there for under £1?

A good HDMI cable (of the correct rating) is not going to be any better than another good cable. (By 'good' I mean properly made and meeting the required technical standard and not something found on ebay where the vendor probably wrote all the 'reviews'

not really at all.  Nobody is suggesting buying the cheapest cable possible, and there's nothing wrong with buying a decently made cable that won't break at the slightest touch and have any adverse affects to being plugged and unplugged many times.  However, so long as people are aware that buying a more expensive HDMI cable will not give you better picture or sound quality....

not sure what you're talking about - used a few either free or very cheap hdmi cables without them falling apart at the slightest touch, as you put it. How often do you plug/ unplug hdmi cables? Probably a couple of times a year

RE: ThatCable HDMI vs Audioquest Pearl

I think the key is "meeting the required technical standard". There's nothing wrong with recommending £1 cables, as long as you've tried it yourself. I can only recommend the cable I bought & tried.

a couple of times a week actually due to the nature of the things that I do.

abby65 has previously been reminded of the house rules for recommending [EDITED BY MODS], so I suspect foul play.
