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 Audio is best known for their high end audio and video cables, handcrafted in Saco, Maine, by a dedicated team of product designers, assembly technicians, and support staff. A visit to the Paragon showroom will reveal almost all 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.
