Good news that the V14 Digital is that good and affordable. I am interested to buy one for my projector (Panasonic PT-AE8000). Since this is a 14AWG cable, I am curious to know how it compares to a Venom NR-V12 or 10 for this application as they have heavier gauge wire. I used to believe that heavier gauges fare better on displays? Am I correct? In my case, I will salvage a SR-Z1 outlet and a Venom defender for this application. I have a dedicated 15A line for my projector.

I'll leave it to Grant and Caelin to comment definitively, but my expectation is the Venom 14 Digital would be fine for powering your projector. The V-12 and V-10 are better performers when you need dynamic transient current delivery (e.g. for an amplifier driving speakers during dynamic musical passages), but as the projector does not function in this manner as it is powered continuously, I would predict it would work really well for your video projector. I use on my Samsung HDTV and it works really well, providing a more vivid, sharper picture than the stock generic power cord.

That advice is probably sound. Thought I’d cross link to the plasma TV / projector thread: https://www.audioaficionado.org/show...t=27805&page=3. Caelin recommended the Venom NR V12 if budget permits (see post #24). I’d imagine this is less important on LED/LCD displays, but for higher current draw displays like plasma TVs and projectors the Venom NR V12 may get the nod.

Thanks for posting. That answers my question.

Has anybody ever tried a Venom 14 Digital on an Apple TV or similar streamer?

I'm finding different pictures of the cable online and can't confirm whether the noise reduction filter is in the C7 connector that would plug into the Apple TV (thus making it incompatible as it would block the HDMI output) or whether it's a standard C7 connector with the filter in the other end (making it compatible).

Edit: if current production units with the C7 connector are the same as this (https://www.audioaficionado.org/showthread.php?t=46664) should be just fine.

If so, what were your subjective impressions of any differences in audio or video quality using the cable?

If memory serves, the picture linked to above is the current configuration of production units of V14D Digital with C7 connector. I think they standardized on this configuration because of the no. of use-cases and applications that had problems with the NR filter on the C7 plug blocking access to other ports, as you've described. I use a V14D on my Apple TV and my HDTV, and the improvements it brings to video and audio quality for HDTV is clearly visible and audible.

Thanks! I run a Venom V12 NR on my HDTV, and will plan to pick one of these up for the new Apple TV. What improvements to video and audio quality did you notice when using on your Apple TV?

Sharper, more vibrant picture with deeper blacks.
