TRANSPARENT UPGRADE PROGRAM
Did you know that upgrading cables and power conditioning in your system can make as much (or more) of a performance improvement than upgrading other more costly core components, like amplifiers and speakers?
If you own a current technology Transparent product, you can upgrade to the next performance level or higher and retain much of the value of your original investment. If you own an older technology Transparent product, you can either opt for a technology upgrade to the same performance level in our current generation, or you can jump to the next performance level and get the benefit of a double upgrade (in both level and technology).
How Transparent Upgrades Work
Each upgrade must be a product category for product category and pair for pair or item for item upgrade. If you own an older technology Transparent product, you can either opt for a technology upgrade at the same performance level and receive generous trade-in value, or you can jump to the next performance level and get the benefit of a double upgrade (in both level and technology). Upgrading entry-level products, such as LINK Interconnects, WAVE Speaker Cables, Performance Digital Cables, and Performance Power Cords, requires 2 performance level steps to upgrade. PowerBank 2, PowerBank 6, PowerWave and PowerWave X Power Conditioners are upgradeable to REFERENCE and above Power Conditioners. At this time, PowerBank Power Conditioners are not upgradeable to PowerWave Power Conditioners.
Only original product owners are immediately eligible for Transparent’s upgrade program. If you have purchased Transparent products from a non-authorized source, eligibility for the upgrade program can be obtained through Transparent's recertification process. The fee to upgrade preowned Transparent Cables without a warranty is approximately 15% of the original retail price of the trade-in cable. Products purchased new or preowned from an Authorized Transparent dealer are eligible for the Transparent Upgrade Program without additional fees.
