Guys

Have used the Venom HDMI in several of my systems over the years. However they have all been 1080p. This cable has always been rated to about 10.2 Gbs

When I upgraded to my current 4K HDR/Dolby Vision setup, I knew that 18Gbs would be required so I upgraded to an active optical cable but also needed to run a 30ft section.

I would not be surprised if using the Venom HDMI one would get acceptable 4K performance at less than 2m.

I am sure that upgraded HDMI cable are probably in the works.

Edward

Great reviews. Image quality being one important aspect, I am also very interested knowing the improvements the Venom HDMI could bring on the audio side. With my Bryston BDA-3 DAC, I am using the HDMI inputs for my cable STB and blu-ray player. The sound portion is "extracted" from the HDMI cable and processed thru the DAC, while the video signal is passed thru. Right now I am using generic HDMI cables and I wish to improve things up a bit. The Venom HDMI is now 50$ since a while so that makes it a no-brainer.

Shunyata is no longer making this or any other HDMI cable.

My new found interest in Shunyata cables has me looking at their Venom HDMI and wondering how it might stack up against the Wireworld Starlight HDMI cable. I am not unhappy with the Starlight HDMI cables, just curious if the Shunyata Venom HDMI cable may offer any advantage in picture quality over the Wireworld HDMI cable. Surprisingly, the Shunyata Venom HDMI cable is priced more reasonably by a considerable margin than the Wireworld Starlight HDMI cable. Thoughts?
Did you decide to try a Venom HDMI cable? Curious as to how it compares to your Wireworld.

I'd be interested in hearing this as well.

I received a 2m Wireworld Starlight 7 this week -- and it is an impressive cable. I'm using it between an LG OLED TV and an Onkyo receiver. Source was a 4K disc played using an Xbox One S connected to the Onkyo via a 1m Wireworld Ultraviolet. The 2m Starlight replaced a 2m Ultraviolet that got damaged.

The sound was more dimensional than I recall ever hearing. There was a scene in Fast Five with a chase on foot across rooftops. At one point the footsteps sounded like they were running across my ceiling. I had added cheap Atmos speakers earlier this year. This was the first time Atmos created sound so palpable above my head. And the Starlight barely had two hours of burn-in when I heard that.

The color saturation and black levels were even more impressive than usual as well. It was wild to see the video quality improved over the first 30 minutes of watching a movie.

I emailed them to ask, and they said: “As for HDMI cables, this is a tough business. These are not big money makers and the specs surrounding HDMI, TV's and blu ray players change so rapidly that it's hard to keep up with them. When we look at the profit on these, how quick they sell and how many we need to make to keep the retail price low, it just doesn't add up. So we've decided to opt out of chasing the changes with these types of cables.”

Can’t blame them. Part of the reason I haven’t upgraded my 1080p plasma TV is because of the ever-changing specs in the industry. Now there are 8K displays coming out...

zonto.......I decided to stay with my Wireworld Starlight 7 HDMI cables. They are HDMI 2.0 compliant and good for 18Gbps to 5.0 meters. I have never been unhappy with the Wireworld Starlight HDMI cable performance, but would have been interested in comparing the Shunyata Venom HDMI cable to the Wireworld HDMI cable. Unfortunately the Shunyata bandwidth does not match that of the Wireworld Starlight HDMI cable, so I put that idea out to pasture.
