TRANSPARENT AUDIO SYSTEM EXPLORER

Do you want a music or home theater system that will totally engage you every time you sit down to hear a favorite piece of music or experience a new movie? It’s a challenge! No single component, cable, power conditioner, or power cord fully determines the overall presentation and impact of the entertainment experience. The magic happens when everything in the system works together optimally.

Your Paragon Sight & Sound professionals are your best source to help you build a truly balanced and satisfying Transparent cabled system.

Transparent has identified 4 levels of different types of systems to help you find your unique path to begin to navigate the hundreds of Transparent products to create the best systems possible: Newcomer, Enthusiast, Aficionado, and Connoisseur systems. The Transparent System Explorer can help you to identify the type of system that is best suited for each product Transparent offers.

While each system is different, having a baseline of matched performance level of audio and digital signal connectivity, power cabling, and power conditioning is vital to helping you stay on track and to think more in terms of improving your entire system over time rather than simply adding components in a random fashion.

Think of Transparent Cables, Power Cords, and Power Conditioning as the lifeblood of your system. Each link works together to create a complex circulatory system that helps feed and balance your system by freeing each component to perform up to its fullest potential.
