|The Monster Connector Difference
Noise and interference that can degrade an HDMI signal is often introduced at the connector. Monster Cable precision engineers its HDMI terminations and their internal components in order to reject external noise that can cause bit error and degrade picture and sound.
The result: your HDTV will accurately display the high-definition video and audio from your high-definition sources, whether that's a 1080p-cable Blu-ray Disc Player, PlayStation® 3 or your 720p/1080i cable/satellite set-top box. Better yet, you'll avoid picture errors, which are more obvious on large, high-performance HDTVs and often attributed to the display. Common errors you can see include color blocking, dropped pixels, flashing pixels, streaks, and other visual aberrations.
Monster for HDMI connectors not only feature 24K gold contacts for maximum signal transfer and ultra-low distortion at the point of connection, but also silver-content soldering, connecting the HDMI cable's conductors to the connector's internal connection pins. This lowers resistance and maximizes digital signal transfer.
Additionally, the Monster for HDMI cables feature a heavy-duty internal metal shell. As a result, the internal conductor wiring routed inside the connector is always fully shielded with metal. This provides an extra defense against interference that can enter at the connector and degrade the digital signal. It also makes the whole connector stronger, preventing internal breakage at any solder point between the conductors and connectors when the cable is installed or disconnected.
This isn't the case on all HDMI cables. Many HDMI cables only feature metal at the connection point. Inside the connector, a thin plastic shield typically separates the molded or metal connector body from the wiring inside. This needlessly exposes the bitstream to noise and conductor wiring to damage during installation or everyday use.
