In 1980, Jack Sumner, Karen Sumner, and Carl Smith came together to form Transparent Audio. This triumvirate of engineer, musician, and musicologist provided the perfect blend of talents needed to launch the name that many audiophiles now swear-by when selecting networked cables. The name Transparent is synonymous with their network filter design philosophy and exceptional craftsmanship.
Located in Maine, Transparent Audio cables are hand-crafted by a dedicated team of product designers, assembly technicians, and support staff. Transparent offers a wide selection of speaker cables, balanced cables, single-ended cables, digital cables, phono cables, power cables, headphone cables, HDMI cables, and power conditioners. A visit to Paragon’s showroom will reveal that all our systems feature Transparent cables.
