Impact Acoustics Digital RapidRun

Last year when we had the opportunity to install and review the very innovative and impressive Impact Acoustics PC/Video, Home Theater RapidRun cabling system, the cabling system removed much of the guess work from the pre-wiring process and made a difficult task much easier for the DIY home owner or professional A/V installer. The RapidRun cabling system became wildly popular for its ability to instantly instill flexibility into pre-wiring. Custom installers rapidly adopted the system for their client’s pre-wire installs. HDMI and to a lesser extent DVI connections (for video) are now the industry standard for high performance digital audio and video connections. Not one to rest on its laurels, Impact Acoustics has now broadened the RapidRun cabling system line with the introduction of the RapidRun Digital cabling system. When we received word that Impact Acoustics would be introducing the new digital version we were anxious to get the new system for testing and evaluation.
