I am setting up my first home theater and I want to get an audioquest cable. I'm running short carbon hdmi cables to my receiver for audio and video input and a 10 meter HDMI from the receiver to Epson 5050 for video only. I read that anything over 8 meters is recomended to use an "active" cable to boost the signal transmission. I need a 10 meter cable and can get a 10 meter "passive" carbon cable for almost the same price as a 10 meter "active" cinnamon cable. The Carbon cable is 2 tiers above in quality than the cinnamon according to audioquest and retail for almost double the $. However the cinnamon is "active" and the carbon is "passive"
