Cost-effective hybrid fibre HDMI is now a reality.
Active Optical HDMI cables were once new and expensive, but the tried-and-true technology has proven capable, reliable and ultimately popular enough to bring the price down significantly. Cable Chick is proud to bring just such a bargain to our shelves with this budget-friendly 4K Active Optical HDMI Cable.
Unlike copper-based HDMI cables, AOC variants use high-bandwidth fibre optical cores to carry the bulk of the HDMI data stream, allowing cable lengths to far exceed normal copper cables while maintaining full HDMI 2.0 feature sets including 4K at up to 60Hz, as well as HDR and 32 channel audio.
Modern optical HDMI cables require no external power, and function identically as any other plug-and-play cable bar one difference - they have a clearly marked source plug and display plug, so be sure to check which way around the cable is before installation.
Active Optical HDMI is the only reliable single-cable solution for long-distance 4K HDMI 2.0 without compromising on video resolution, refresh rate or colour depth. A great replacement for older HDMI booster cables and any install where a shorter HDMI 2.0 cable simply won't do the job.

Product Review by Stephen,
I purchased another couple of Cable Chick's cables, having been very satisfied by my previous online experiences with them. One was a basic quality 2m HDMI Male to HDMI Male Cable and the other was a Premium 2m HDMI Cable (HDMI v1.3b Certified).
I wanted a basic cable for a second STB and the premium cable for my PVR and TV setup... and I can't resist shiny connectors! The shielding on the premium cable is thicker than on the basic quality cable, but as it costs more, that's expected. And the connectors are a step up in class as well, but one's choice depends on what one wants in a cable. Both cables do what they are supposed to do. Although my plasma monitor is pre-HDTV, it can process 1080i/720p signals via down-scaling. I replaced the existing component cables with the Premium HDMI cable and was surprised when there was a slight improvement in an already good picture. So I'd recommend either of these cables, with the Premium HDMI cable having more shielding and higher aesthetics, if that appeals to you. And as usual, Cable Chick's service was first class!

Product Review by Michael,
I recently went looking to find a 20m HDMI cable. I had tried purchasing one locally only to find that they were not available but was told they could order one in at a cost of $275.00 and this could take up to 2 weeks to arrive. I was not happy with that response so i went onto the internet and came across this website. not only did they have the product i was looking for it was only $99 with free express post delivery. I received the cable the next day and i am satisfied with the quality. Thanks for the fantastic service and I am now telling everyone about this website.

Product Review by Nathan,
I recently purchased a 2M Premium HDMI cable and the experience was been nothing short of exceptional. Bought the cable online at 2pm and by 5pm I had my tracking number for postage... the cable then promptly arrived around 11am the next day! You can really feel the quality in the cable itself also and the price was definitely right, saving me more than 50% from what I would pay in other stores. Will no doubt be buying more from Cable Chick in the future.

Product Review by Peter,
I recently required a HDMI cable and was quoted $200 from a Harvey Norman store.
I found Cable Chick online and started my own research. I rang the office to confirm some technical points and was very impressed with the honest advice. I purchased the same quality product as well as an Optic Fibre cable and had them delivered the following day for a total of $77. I live 2000 kms from their office so this was great. I was extremely impressed and have already started looking into other cables etc that I need.
I wont buy from anywhere else now.

Product Review by Rob,
I recently purchased 2 x 10 metres lengths of high quality HDMI cabling (for internal wall routing in two terraces I am currently constructing in Sydney) from Cable Chick.
Ordering on-line was made very simple, and their website made navigation - right from product enquiry through to finalising the purchase - a hassle free process. My order was delivered within the timeframe that was committed to, and in excellent condition. Thanks Cable Chick
for at least making one element of the building process really easy !
