VIVILINK 2 HDMI CABLES
Audiophile Audition prefaced their review of our original Vivilink by saying, "I have to retract my previous advice on this site that with HDMI cables there is one of the few cable areas where you are getting fleeced if you pay high prices for premium high-end HDMI cables instead of getting the $10 ones online...from the cable biggiesperhaps theres little difference. But the difference with Mapleshades new high-end HDMI cable was easily seen."
You simply wont see the great video image your expensive plasma or LCD/LED monitor can deliver without a good cable. Conventional high-end HDMI cables have thick, energy-absorbing plastic insulation and excessively heavy-gauge, slow responding conductors. This adds serious jitter to digital video data streams, just like it distorts audio data and signals. Our Vivilink is dramatically different, using the same design ideas that make our audio cables so astonishingly clean and detailed: thinner all-copper conductors, minimalist insulation with better dielectric materials than any famous high-end video cable. Then we add in the same chemical and thermal treatments used for audio wires; they take image clarity and sound quality up another sizable notch.
The new Vivilink 2 takes HDMI performance another sizable step forward beyond the original, highly acclaimed Vivilink. Our new design uses even thinner gauge, faster responding wire; more effective individual shields for each data conductor to replace the old single overall shield; and an all-organic fiber mesh jacket of lower dielectric absorption instead of the previous plastic mesh. In head-to-head comparision with its predecessor, the Vivilink 2 is an immediate improvement in image clarity on screen: more natural skin tones, more nuanced image contrast, richly defined color depth, crisper edge resolution. With these results in hand, we confidently guarantee the Vivilink 2 delivers better picture and audio quality than even the most expensive industry reference HDMIs including Audioquest Diamond, Wireworld, Crystal, PS Audio, Kimber, Siltech, Furutech, Acoustic Zen, Synergistic, Tara Lab, and Acoustic Zen. 30-Day Money Back
