HDMI 1.3a or 1.4a?
 
Hello all. I just purchased a 3D ready Pioneer VSX 520K receiver. It is HDMI 1.4a rated. Should I buy 1.4a cables or will 1.3a cables suffice? What's the difference between the two? I was checking monoprice and it seems they only have 1.3a high speed in stock. Thanks.

I highly doubt it matters at this point in time, and a 1.3a cable probably works for 1.4a anyways.

All 1.4 adds is 3D-support, 4K and 6K resolution, Ethernet capability, all of which you probably don't need. If you owned a 3DTV, I'd hope you would of bought a higher-end receiver. The other two aren't even in use yet that I know of.

Then I might as well get the 1.4a cables so I won't have to buy them when 3DTV becomes mainstream. Thanks.

The majority of HDMI 1.4 cables are in stock, pricing is very similar if you're looking to future proof.
