See a List of Home Theater Cables, Charging Cables, and Wires You May Want to Upgrade

With the holidays just having passed, chances are you may have one or two new devices or electronics to plug in, install, or power. When it comes to home theater cables, smartphone cables, and electrical wire, it doesn’t hurt to upgrade every once in a while.

High tech, new, state-of-the-art cables make your daily life easier. You’ll see your smartphone charge faster on the right cable. With a home theater system, you can actually have enough cables to plug everything in. You also have the chance, when you shop with PrimeCables, to purchase adapters so that you’re never struggling without a way to power, sync, or charge.

HDMI cables

Everyone with a 720p TV or above is probably using an HDMI cable to connect something to it. Upgrading your HDMI cables for your home theater system gets you something premium-rated, customizable with different lengths and casings, and different design functions. Something as simple as Ethernet connectivity can mean the world of difference to your TV.

Ethernet cables

A sure way to get faster Internet is to cable it instead of using the standard WiFi connection. Connect and transmit high speed Internet with Ethernet cables, whether it’s for home theater speeds, gaming, computer needs, or otherwise. Ethernet cables remain vital to achieving the fastest possible speeds for the households and corporate environments who need it most.

USB cables

Thousands of devices use USB cables but some are built better than others. Sync and charge smartphone USB cables are a popular category but it’s important to have premium built USB connections that work with all devices. If your USB cable is slow charging, malfunctioning, or has not been updated in a few years, consider an upgrade to something faster and more contemporary.

Apple lightning cables

Apple lightning cables and Thunderbolt cables are used across the millions of Apple products. Though the company’s now focusing on wireless charging for future Apple devices, anyone with a slightly older iPhone or iPad still needs a high quality, premium-built USB connected lightning cable or Thunderbolt to get synced up, charged up, and connected.

Home theater audio cables

Audio is everything when it comes to a home theater system. Video quality is easily achieved. Audio takes a bit more work. Consider making a change or upgrading to speaker wire, 3.5mm cables, digital coaxial cables, RCAs, or Toslink digital optical audio cables. If you know what cables you’re looking for and what they do, you can do a lot with what’s on sale at PrimeCables.ca.

Why We Buy Audio, Video, and Cable Adapters – Add More Function to Your Home

Occasionally, we run into the problem of not having the ability to amplify audio or connect a video to the right device. When this happens, thankfully, you have a wide array of audio and video signal adapters to choose from.

Why we buy cable adapters is ultimately to turn one cable type into another cable type, modifying the connector. For example, let’s say you have a video signal coming across a DVI/VGA cable but your flat-screen has no such input. If all your flat-screen has is HDMI, an adapter that goes DVI-to-HDMI or VGA-to-HDMI – in accordance with the requirements of whatever the existing connection is – THAT’s what’s needed.

  • 3ft long

Compatibility issues aren’t just reserved for solution by adapters either. Sometimes a converter’s better. For example, if you have an analog signal to convert into digital, a converter does it! Alternatively maybe you want to extend a signal beyond what the length of a cable allows. Extenders are employed in this case, perfect for adding more power to a signal that has to go across long distances.

As a multi-screen household or if you’re looking to get either audio or video functionality on multiple screens, a splitter is used to do this. Audio and video splitters essentially divide a signal, allowing it to reach multiple input points. The most popular kind of home theater splitter is HDMI, which would send audio and video to two or more devices.

  • Supports Full 3D and 4K×2K resolution

Technically, within the scope of what splitters, converters, and extenders do, you could say network routers and switchers do the same thing. These devices help strengthen or extend distribution of signal. For virtually anything – DVI, VGA, HDMI, or router – there are means of adapting the signal to the unique home setup you have. If you aren’t getting the functionality you’ve always wanted to have from your home theater system, look at the possibility of what adapters can do. You may be surprised to find out there’s a lot you can do.

USB cable adapters can also help a ton in connecting USB devices, printers, keywords, and equipment of all kinds to a computer or wall plug to charge. Although a USB cable adapter’s never going to be able to increase speed or add to the technology in a USB connector, they provide connection where it may not be otherwise possible. If you have an older device or something purchase overseas that may not have the most convenient USB type on it, there are tons of adapters that could potentially help in resolving this very, very common issue.

Why HDMI Cables are Designed the Way They Are – Understanding What Makes a High Quality HDMI Cable

HDMI cables are designed in some very unique ways to deliver the ultimate high-definition capable connection for home theater systems. HDMI has proven to be a standard so capable and quality that virtually no flat-screen sold today is lacking a component input for it. In fact, regulations prevent any manufacturer from making a flat-screen with a resolution lower than standard definition (480p). Needless to say, if you appreciate high-definition and 4K quality, it’s HDMI cables you want.

What type of HDMI cable do I need?

Now there are different types of HDMI cables available, some of which are only capable to provide 1080p while others can go up to 4K. There are also some devices that use HDMI but with a mini HDMI port or a micro HDMI port. Assuming you have a 4K HDMI cable, keep in mind the video display must be 4K and the media itself must also be in 4K. Regardless of what your view may be on 4K, HDMI 1080p cables are usually enough to meet most family’s entertainment needs. Be sure to pay attention when purchasing yours however to ensure it has the quality you want.

What kind of HDMI specifications should I be looking for?

Be careful when selecting an HDMI cable from a third party to ensure it’s built well. For example, HDMI has 4 wire gauges – 22AWG, 24AWG, 26AWG, and 28AWG. The higher the number, the thinner the wire core is and that shortens the transmission distance. If you have a longer HDMI function in mind, select a low AWG accordingly.

Why the wire core material is important in an HDMI cable

The wire core material in an HDMI cable also matters. Ideally, you want an HDMI wire core with a pure copper conductor as this supports ultra-long distance transmission and signal stability. Copper HDMI cables can provide a 1080p HD resolution for up to 30 meters and beyond sometimes. For most households, they evidently don’t need this length. Even so, it doesn’t hurt to inquire about material used.

Why gold plated connectors are integral

High quality HDMI cables in Canada all have gold-plated connectors. Why? Better quality, of course! Gold-plated connectors solve loose contact problems which can occur after repeated plugging and unplugging. These issues cause signal loss and reduced picture quality. Quality connectors battle back against this. You can’t go wrong with gold-plated connectors, if you know you’re going to be doing a lot of plugging and unplugging with a specific HDMI cable model.

Don’t Get Tricked into Buying Fancy HDMI Cables for $30 or More – Shop Cheap, Quality HDMIs with PrimeCables Instead

The best HDMI cables in Canada are rarely those the most expensive. Although you can buy HDMIs for $30, $40, or even more, they oftentimes don’t deliver on quality.

Should you use Ethernet Cable instead of Wi-Fi for Gaming – read here

For gamers, some prefer using an Ethernet connection instead of Wi-Fi arguing it provides faster, more efficient gaming. They’re not wrong. Wireless speeds are not as reliable as a wired connection. An Ethernet connection provides a reliable, stable connection direct from your console to the router. You’re taking out variables like distance and obstructions, common in wireless, and instead replacing it with a connection and download speed you know is not going to provide any issue.

Setting up an Ethernet network cable can be a bit of a hassle and in some situations, it’s not such a fancy thing to look at. Even so, a wired connection will accomplish two things – first, you’re getting stability and second, a faster speed than wireless. Although some modern wireless routers can give speeds high enough for gaming, if there’s bandwidth problems or instability involved, you don’t want latency or issues with the Internet connection making the experience difficult. Ethernet’s the strongest connection you can have.

For argument’s sake, a wireless connection is prone to use from other users and devices on the network. It has to share that wireless signal among all of them. The more people on the network, the higher the possibility of latency happening. Through wired Ethernet, so many variables are immediately are gone. For gamers who make the switch, they almost never go back to wireless. Normally, a gamer can expect to see faster download speed, better ping numbers, and more reliable connections overall.

For the best Ethernet cable in Canada, shop PrimeCables. Choose from Cat7 network cable, Cat6a network cable, and Cat5e cable. There is no better place to get bulk cable than with PrimeCables, as we offer fast, free shipping on all orders above $49 as well. No matter if you’re needing short-length, medium-length, or long-length cable, we’ve got it.

PrimeCables also has several other gaming-friendly options you might enjoy, like speaker and monitor mounts, HDMI cables, USB cables, various audio and video cable and device adapters, computer monitors, headphones, surge protectors, and more.

Ethernet cable is not just perfect for gaming but can be used for a home entertainment system and/or if you’re hosting a server for a website or web-based application. Anything where you know you need a high quality Internet connection that’s not going to fail you and that will consistently deliver the highest speeds or bandwidth possible, a wired Ethernet connection is needed. Shop yours today at PrimeCables.
