Transparent Reference RCA Interconnect

REFERENCE RCA Interconnects are essential building blocks for a Connoisseur Level music or film system with single-ended components. They deliver extended and well-defined bass energy while creating an incredibly quiet sound field for low-level audio signals to flesh out music to previously unrealizable levels. Built-in networks are calibrated to cable length and type to further reduce noise and increase signal efficiency. Furthermore, the networks are calibrated to either high or low output impedance associated components to increase low-level information retrieval and low frequency texture and foundation.



REFERENCE RCA Interconnects are handcrafted in the USA and deliver deeper, tighter bass frequencies and transfers music with more refinement than ULTRA RCA. They are also upgradeable to XL, OPUS, or MAGNUM OPUS RCA Interconnects. Not only are the networks calibrated for the specific electrical output characteristics of their respective components, but the network components themselves are more precisely matched to the cable’s inherent electrical properties and length than ULTRA RCA Interconnect.

Elegant carbon fiber composite network modules allow electromagnetic fields to expand fully and freely. The thin and stiff-walled CFC network modules accommodate a large mass of epoxy resin to reduce resonance and vibrations resulting in more accurate transmission of micro dynamics and a more complete harmonic palette.

This product is available for purchase in-store only.

REFERENCE RCA Interconnect is available in 2 versions: High Z for high output impedance and Low Z for low output impedance source components and preamplifiers. Contact us to determine which RSE version is the best fit for your source components or preamplifier.

RSE is upgradeable to XL-level RCA Interconnects and above. Paragon is an authorized Transparent dealer for sales and upgrades.

Warranty registration not only extends the Transparent Warranty to 5 years, it provides the original owner with recalibrations at no charge in the event that a component change requires network adjustments.
