AudioQuest Cherry Cola Active Optical HDMI Cable

Audioquest HDMI 4K logos

Cherry Cola is a fiber-optic “AOC” (Active Optical Cable) that carries 18Gbps of 4K Ultra HD + HDR or other 18Gbps data packages over 100 feet with the same high-end performance audio and video as over any shorter length. Yes, “high-end performance audio” is part of the package. While many long-length applications don’t need any audio, many do, and Cherry Cola is a full-fledged member of the “you can always hear the difference with AudioQuest” family.

Among the important ingredients are a newly developed advanced electro-optical conversion module and four glass-fiber optical conductors for the A/V signal. The new generation active circuitry is significantly more reliable than in prior generation AOC modules. AudioQuest is often not first to the party for good reasons. Cherry Cola also employs a sophisticated Noise-Dissipation System combining RF noise-absorbing Carbon and RF noise-draining by directionality-controlled silver-plated conductors. For applications where needed, Cherry Cola’s Plenum-rated jacket is make-or-break important.

For all applications, that Cherry Cola is Self-Powered (by attached components) makes life a lot easier than having to use external power sources.

As with any long-length HDMI cable, we recommend testing Cherry Cola with the specific components before installation. While Cherry Cola is even less sensitive to compatability issues than Active Equalization copper cables, all hardware combinations are vulnerable to compatibility issues. AQ has always referred to cables as being a component — this is even more true with Active cables.

Newly Developed Electro-Optical Conversion Module

The new-generation active circuitry is significantly more reliable than that of earlier Active Optical Cable (AOC) modules, ensuring outstanding performance for applications up to 100ft/30.5m.

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.
