Digital and A/V Cables

High performance audio systems deserve high performance cables.

USB Ultimate

VDH USBVDH has looked into how these signals can be influenced and how the construction of a cable could be optimized to get the best result possible. The outcome is the new USB Ultimate cable. The USB Ultimate features some unique ideas resulting in superior performance and value. 

First
the signal wires are extremely heavy plated silver over OFC. As digital signals tend to go to the outside of the cable (the so called skin-effect) the dense very pure silver plating is in effect carrying the signal from source to receiver. Next, the signal conducting wires are kept as far away from the power lines as possible. The flat construction of the cable delivers the best possible performance over the maximum distance. 

Finally, Van den Hul's patented Hulliflex jacket provides a long lasting protective environment virtually eliminating oxidation which harms the sonic performance of wire. This means, when protected by Hulliflex, the sound of your cables will not deteriorate over time. This, and a few other trade secrets, makes the VDH USB ULTIMATE one of the very best USB audio cables available today. Retail $599.

Optocoupler

The VDH Optocoupler is an innovative optical Toslink cable which is very highly regarded in the market. This cable delivers a high bandwidth, low-loss, low jitter connection for a very high quality sound and picture.
In this unique cable both ends of the single fiber are convex shaped. This focuses the light beam better and reduces internal reflections and shortens the signal path. The result is less time-smear and lower jitter distortion. This cable is available with Toslink or Minijack connectors.

Digi-Coupler 75 Ohm

The Digi-Coupler is a good 75 ohm cable featuring a precise 75 ohm impedance, very high frequency bandwidth and low level signal attenuation. With three very dense braided silver shields, plus three additional high purity foil shields Digi-Coupler is the ultimately well shielded cable.

MC Silver Mk II 75 Ohm

The MC Silver Mk II 75 Ohm cable is a specially adapted version of Van den Hulís ultra high performance MC Silver series. Use this cable for the highest quality digital applications.

HDMI Ultimate

The VDH HDMI Ultimate is a no-compromise cable delivering the ultimate performance attainable from HDMI. This cable flawlessly transfers a huge amount of digital data over 50' (15m) distances without the requirement of using signal repeaters. The HDMI Ultimate is also guaranteed to support display modes/ resolutions up to and including 1080p for lengths up to 80' (25m). These distances can then be doubled using VDH's HDMI Repeater.

Although specifications are set by official HDMI organizations, the cable design, purity of materials and manufacturing techniques can dramatically affect the final performance of an HDMI cable.

The HDMI Ultimate is comprised of extra thick high density silver plated oxygen free copper conductors and low dissipation dielectrics. This results in exceptionally wide bandwidth, very low signal losses and ultra-low jitter ensuring a clear, highly detailed and very stable picture with impeccable sound. The cable features a heavy double outer shield making the cable virtually immune to external interference. Individually screened internal signal groups provide additional shielding and prevent crosstalk.

The HDMI Ultimate is equipped with professional quality metal body HDMI 'Type A' connectors with heavy gold plated contacts and full strain relief. This is an especially important feature. These very high quality metal connectors provide the ultimate termination which prevents the wire from oxidizing at the ends. The Ultimate utilizes a high performance Halogen free Hulliflex jacket which also prevents oxidization along the length of the cable. This tip to tip completely closed system eliminates the harmful effects of cable oxidation thus ensuring your cable continues to perform up to spec for many years.
"There's a lot of pressure on Van den Hul's latest HDMI cable. It's called the Ultimate, so anything less than five stars and it'll be a case of the no-so-Ultimate. Thankfully, this HDMI cable lives up to its name. The Ultimate really does impress with its clear, detailed, realistic picture. Even more apparent is the sonic ability of this cable. It sounds controlled and composed. The level of refinement and finesse that it encourages is there for all to hear."  - What Hi-Fi, 5 Stars award winner.

HDMI Flat 180

The VDH HDMI Flat 180 is a new high quality, flat shaped, HDMI cable with clever rotating connectors that make connections easy when there's little room behind your equipment. The VDH HDMI Flat 180 is fully compliant with the 1.4 fast speed standard for lengths up to 32 feet and is warranted to maintain 1080p performance over this length. However the cable offers effortless performance even at long 50 foot runs.

With the HDMI standard's enormous digital data throughput of up to 10.2 Gigabits per second, the cable's flat shape reduces crosstalk. The result is a higher signal integrity, especially for larger cable runs. This translates into superb digital video and sound quality. The flat shape also provides extra mechanical flexibility as well as extended options in architecturally friendly installation, such as running the cable through skirting.

Offering exceptional performance and value for money, The VDH HDMI Flat 180 delivers clear sharp images, accurate colour definition, vivid contrast and an infinity of fine detail up to the highest video resolutions. Sound on any digital format is unmatched.
"It's soon apparent that this cable [HDMI Flat] is special. Images boast amazing clarity and there's hardly any trace of noise. The cable has a firm grip on motion and allows for a fantastic smooth and free-flowing image. Sonically the Flat is anything but. It's pleasingly dynamic, entertaining and one of the most musical HDMI cables that we've come across. The Flat is a superb cable."  - What Hi-Fi Best Buy and Product of the Year, 2008.
