This is great news. I work for a custom AV company, and there are certain applications where running High Definition wiring is not possible (condos, etc). PureAV used to make a device like this, but it was discontinued. $300 is reasonable for a device like this, hopefully it is high quality and reliable.

Only 300 bucks? thats the cost of one of the bs HDMI cables, i guess its a decent deal then

awesome! i can’t wait to see some actual installed performance reports.  just to see if it holds up. ive had some bad experiences with the last few monster producst ive owned. either way its a step forward.

latest reports say this does not pass hdmi audio and is now expected to cost closer to $600. My level of excitement is dwindling.

if it doesn’t pass audio, then that would mean you’d have to run a wire for the audio signal, right? kinda defeats the purpose.

Great concept..but indeed limited if the no-audio part turns out to be true.

On the other hand for me it doesn’t make any difference since my religion (church of common sense) forbids me from purchasing anything with “Monster” in the name.

I think it passes audio separately from the hdmi, and iwant to say its fiber optic digital (which most TVs won’t accept)

I believe the cost is $300 for transmitter and $300 for receiver.

It has to pass audio - that’s part of the HDMI signal.  However, it does use compression (JPEG 2000, i think) so on a 1080p picture your results may vary.
