Dragon eARC features 100% Perfect-Surface Silver eARC conductors and Ground-Reference conductors with Level-6 Noise-Dissipation.

AudioQuest Dragon eARC-Priority 48G HDMI Cable

 

AudioQuest eARC-Priority cables are full-on 48-Series HDMI cables with the 48Gbps bandwidth required for 8K-10K video and all the latest video features. While the main A/V data pairs have Cinnamon-level performance (Forest 48’s solid 0.5% Silver + Carbon & Vodka 48’s Level-3 Noise-Dissipation), the eARC data pair and Ground-Reference drain in eARC-Priority cables use all the same advanced design ingredients as their “48” siblings.

Dragon eARC features 100% Perfect-Surface Silver eARC conductors and Ground-Reference conductors with Level-6 Noise-Dissipation.

For soundbars and other ARC input-equipped gear, this allocation of design and material resources offers superior sonic performance at the friendliest possible prices.

 

Features :

  • Solid 0.5% Silver Conductors
  • Level 6 Noise Disippation - 72v DBS, Graphene Layer, Global Carbon Layer & Direction Controlled
  • Solid 100% Silver eARC Conductors
  • All 19 conductors are Direction-Controlled (A/V, eARC, Ground-Reference Drains, Control, Power)
  • All 48G cables up to 5m have the bandwidth required for video with resolutions up to 10k, including 9K/60Hz and 4K/120Hz

 

100% Perfect-Surface Silver eARC Conductors / 100% Perfect-Surface Silver Ground-Reference

In AudioQuest's eARC-Priority HDMI cables, the eARC data-pair conductors and Ground-Reference drain use the same advanced design ingredients as their 48-Series counterparts, enabling superior sonic performance at the friendliest possible prices.

 

0.5% Silver-Plated Copper A/V Conductors (HDMI)

In AudioQuest HDMI cables, increasingly thick layers of silver plating are applied to AudioQuest’s Long-Grain Copper (LGC) conductors to improve Noise-Dissipation. Placing the superior metal on the outside of the conductor produces the greatest benefit on overall performance—a superbly cost-effective way to maximize a digital cable. Dragon eARC-Priority 48 uses 0.5% Silver-Plated Copper for its conductors.

 

Level 6 Noise Dissipation: 72v DBS + Graphene + Global Carbon + Directionality

Traditional “100% shielding” is not enough to guard against the increasingly prevalent effects of Wi-Fi, cellular, and satellite radiation. In AudioQuest HDMI cables, all 19 conductors are Direction-Controlled to minimize the RF Noise that damages performance by “directing” or draining it away from the most vulnerable circuits. In Level 5 Noise-Dissipation, high-loss graphene is added to the carbon layer sandwiched between layers of metal around the 4 FRL + eARC pairs, and a "global" high-loss carbon layer is placed around all conductors. Level 6 Noise Dissipation, AudioQuest's most advanced and comprehensive means of addressing induced radio-frequency noise, incorporates all of the sophisticated techniques found in other models and adds AudioQuest's patented 72v Dielectric-Bias System.

 

48G HDMI Cables from AudioQuest

AudioQuest “48” HDMI cables can transfer up to professional 10K Ultra-HD video. The 48Gbps bandwidth is made possible by 4 balanced audio/video pairs capable of 12Gbps each. The precision and tighter manufacturing tolerances required to produce HDMI cables that transfer up to 48Gbps bandwidth mean many of AudioQuest’s tried-and-true ingredients and techniques are more important than ever before.

 

HDR (High Dynamic Range)

All AudioQuest HDMI cables support HDR (High Dynamic Range) and Dynamic HDR. HDR content expands the contrast of the image for blacker blacks and brighter whites/highlights as well as greater colour saturation and brightness. In addition, 4K Ultra-HD content allows for a wider colour range.

This combination of technologies results in more realistic HDR images with greater perceived depth. Dynamic HDR (HDR10+ and Dolby Vision, for example) enables frame-by-frame HDR optimization rather than HDR settings that are fixed for the entire program. The most prominent current HDR formats are HDR10, HDR10+, and Dolby Vision.

AudioQuest 18Gbps and 48Gbps HDMI cables are compatible with all varieties of HDR, which can be found on Ultra-HD Blu-ray, and all major streaming services, including Netflix, Amazon Prime, Disney+, Apple TV+, and others.

 

eARC (Enhanced Audio Return Channel)

HDMI’s Audio Return Channel (ARC) sends audio from a TV to a soundbar or AV receiver for greater simplicity and flexibility in system setup. Hardware’s previous ARC capabilities max out at lossy (compressed) 5.1-channel surround sound.

Today’s HDMI 2.1 hardware supports enhanced Audio Return Channel (eARC), which increases the digital bandwidth dramatically to support uncompressed and lossless high-resolution multichannel audio, including Dolby TrueHD and Atmos, and DTS-HD Master Audio and DTS: X.

Not only do all current generations of AudioQuest HDMI cables have the conductors and bandwidth required for eARC’s enhanced sonic capabilities, but, in order to ensure superior audio performance, the ARC-channel conductor-pair is internally controlled for direction, running in the opposite direction from the 4 pairs that carry information to the TV.

Finally, AudioQuest’s eARC-Priority models include 4 Silver-Plated Forest 48-level audio/video data pairs—but with a far superior single data pair for the TV’s audio output. By upgrading the ARC data path only, audiophile quality is made possible at a fraction of the cost of upgrading all 5 data pairs.

About AudioQuest

AudioQuest has been the largest cable supplier to the high-end specialist market for many years. AudioQuest is sold in several hundred outlets in the US and in over sixty countries. Bill Lowe (Founder) is especially pleased that this success has been possible despite his insistence that the foundation of the company, and the foundation of AudioQuest marketing, must be the performance of the product. In the audio world, many professionals have learned that it is not always convenient to listen to the products they sell … they might learn something they don’t want to know! Bill has always understood the challenge of basing the existence of AudioQuest on the performance of the product. However, to Bill, this is the only reasonable way to do business and the only acceptable way to combine his passion for music (and all things high performance), with his need to make a living.
