HDMI to HDMI Cables, Extenders, Switchers and Splitters are designed to carry Digital-only Signals from source to display. Along with the Video, Digital Audio is transmitted over the HDMI Cable, making it a versatile alternative to DVI. Features are; 19-pin design, ferrite rings, gold plated connectors, black cable, multiple lengths. Perfect for Inter-Connecting HDTV, Digital Cable, DVR, PS3, Sony PlayStation 3, DVD, Home Theater. Compatible with all brands of Digital Format Devices Utilizing Video resolution including: 480i, 480p, 720i, 720p, 1080i, 1080p.
Use an HDMI splitter to send multiple HDMI signals to other HDMI displays, inputs or HDTV's. A Multiple number of Displays/Inputs can be connected by Daisy-chaining Multiple Splitters together to create a larger number of Distribution Outputs (Inputs to Other Devices). These HDMI Splitters support both HDMI Audio and HDMI Video signals within the HDMI signal and are fully HDCP Compliant. The HDMI Splitter is connected using a HDMI cable from the HDMI source to the HDMI splitter input. Then you connect 2 or more HDMI cables from the HDMI splitter output to you HDMI equipped HDTV or other device.
Share your HDMI Set-top Converter, DVD players, Video Game Stations and Computers with your Hi Def HDTV monitor. These Switches pass HDMI 1.3 Digital and Audio Signals and HDCP data through the HDMI ports. HDMI is Backwards Compatible with DVI-D when the Appropriate Cables and/or Adaptors are Used... Keeping Your System Up to Date.
Effortlessly extend the reach of your HDMI or DVI cable link up to 165 feet between the source and projector monitor that is causing your video to drop out. HDMI is backward compatible with DVI with use of adapters. The compact HDMI CAT5E CAT6 Extender automatically equalizes and compensates for HDMI/ DVI cables losses and extends cable reach to Remote Units through the use of Easily Installed or Existing Cat5e or Cat6 cables with modest Power consumption. Some HDMI Cables Have built in Extenders that are powered directly from the cable without an external power supply, and is ideal for projection theater systems.

Speaker Wire and Cable: Speaker wire performance is gauged by Resistance, Capacitance, and Inductance. The shorter a wire is, the better, as resistance increases with length. As long as the resistance is kept to less than 5% of the speaker impedance, it will suffice for home use. The resistance of speaker connection cable in 16-gauge or heavier wire has no detectable effect in runs of 50 feet or less in most loudspeaker connections. The lower the impedance of the speaker, the greater the impact of the resistance of the speaker wire will have. High power car audio systems using 2 ohm speaker circuits need relatively thick cables. The gauge sizes in AWG (American wire gauge) reduce as the wire gets larger. Thicker wires in a cable reduce resistance. Better purification of copper reduces oxidation and results in more consistent conductivity throughout the length of cable used.
Surround Sound Home Theater Wall Plates: Surround Sound Home Theater Wall-Plates that incorporate HDMI, RCA, F and other Popular Connections in Combinations for Installing In Home Theater and Surround Sound Entertainment Applications.
5.1 ("five point one") is the common name for six channel surround sound multichannel audio systems. 5.1 is now the most commonly used layout in both commercial cinemas and home theaters. It uses five full bandwidth channels and one low frequency enhancement channel (the "point one"). Dolby Digital, Dolby Pro Logic II, DTS, and SDDS are all commonly 5.1 systems. 5.1 is also the standard surround sound audio component of digital broadcast and music.
All 5.1 systems use the same speaker channels and configuration, having a front left and right, a center channel, and two surround channels.
Blu-ray and Digital cinema both have eight-channel capability which can be used to provide either 5.1 or 7.1 surround sound. 7.1 is an extension of 5.1 that uses four surround zones: two at the sides and two at the back.
7.1 ("seven point one") surround sound is the common name for eight channel surround audio systems. It adds two additional speakers to the more conventional six channel (5.1) audio configuration. 7.1 surround sound positional audio uses the standard front, center, and LFE (bass) speaker configuration. In its most common configuration, 7.1 surround sound includes two speakers positioned to the side and two to the rear. 7.1 surround sound can also refer to 5.1 surround sound configurations with the addition of two front height channels positioned above the front channels or two front wide channels positioned between the front and surround channels.
The Blu-ray Disc and the HD DVD home video formats provide up to 8 channels of lossless DTS-HD Master Audio, Dolby TrueHD or uncompressed LPCM audio at 96 kHz/24-bit. The Sony PlayStation 3 video-game console can output up to 7.1 LPCM through HDMI for both Blu-ray movies and games.
