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 their craftsmanship. Located in Maine, Transparent Audio cables are hand-crafted by a dedicated team of product designers, assembly technicians, and support staff. Transparent Audio 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 all systems featuring Transparent cables. We are proud to have been named their “Top Dealer” every year since 2010.
