The argument over whether or not top-end cabling makes a noticeable difference to your home-cinema gear will forever rage between technophiles. If you’re on the side of the fence that believes more expensive cabling gets the job done better for your HD kit, have a look at IXOS’s XEN XHT6688 HDMI cable.
The XEN XHT668 HDMI cable is designed to work with all HDMI v1.4 components including those with Ethernet capabilities, allowing an internet enabled HDMI device to share its connection across the cable.
24k gold plated conductors are used to prevent oxidisation in the cable and a nitrogen gas-injected polyethylene dielectric is used to ensure accurate impedance transfer of HDMI 1.4 Category 2 with Ethernet signals.
The cabling will also be 3D ready, and will support 4kx2k resolutions once they go commercial.
The XEN XHT668 HDMI cable doesn’t come cheap though. You’re looking at £129.99 for a 1.5m cable. I’d have wanted AT LEAST 1.6m for that price…
