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 speaker cables for their systems. Transparent’s home base is Saco, Maine, where their corporate offices and primary warehouse are located.
Transparent Audio is best known for their high end audio and video cables, handcrafted by a dedicated team of product designers, assembly technicians, and support staff. A visit to the Paragon showroom will reveal many systems featuring Transparent cables – Transparent speaker cable, interconnects, power cords, and more. We are proud to have been named their “Top Dealer” every year since 2010.
