Transparent Cable – REFERENCE Speaker Cable
15-Foot “Low Z” Version For Low Output Impedance Amplifiers
REFERENCE Speaker Cable is a significant performance upgrade when compared to Ultra Speaker Cable. Reference level cables are the first products in the Transparent family to be custom calibrated for the specific electrical output characteristics of your components. Additionally, the network components are more precisely matched to the cable’s inherent electrical properties and length. Direct gold plated, custom machined connectors made from solid Tellurium copper provide superior contact and exceptional power transfer. Finally, the larger and heavier, machined acrylic, network module more effectively damps vibration and resonances that can adversely affect performance.
REFERENCE Speaker Cable is available in 2 versions: High Z for high output impedance and Low Z for low output impedance amplifiers. RSC is also crafted with connector configurations and polarity to fit precisely and easily with your specific amplifier, speakers, and system layout. Contact Transparent or a Transparent dealer to determine which RSC version is the best fit for your amplifier and to discuss the details of your system connection.
Transparent Cable – Reference Balanced Interconnect
(Two Available – 1.5 Meter and 2 Meter Lengths)
REFERENCE Balanced Interconnect (RBL) is designed for high-resolution source components and preamplifiers with full balanced differential circuitry. Balanced interconnects at the RBL level dramatically expand the realism of a sonic landscape, invoking a staggering level of detail and preservation of dynamic range. RBL delivers extended and well-defined bass energy while creating a quiet interface for low-level audio signals. A fully balanced design from cabling through the precisely matched dual networks for each channel, RBL is often the balanced interconnect choice for discerning audiophiles, music lovers, and music professionals alike.
RBL is a significant upgrade compared to ULTRA Balanced Interconnect (UBL). Reference level cables are the first products in the Transparent family to be custom calibrated for the specific electrical output characteristics of your components. Additionally, the network components are more precisely matched to the cable’s inherent electrical properties and length. Where the UBL used a single network module for its dual network, RBL uses 2 precision machined acrylic network modules to further isolate the dual differentially balanced networks. This extra isolation provides greater noise reduction and effectively damps any opportunity for resonances to negatively affect performance.
Avior II Loudspeakers
*Please call us for price and availability*
This is a rare pre-owned offering that was originally sold through Stereo Exchange. Our client is so in love with Rockport that he actually moved up to a higher-level option, trading these in during the process.
“While carefully preserving the original Avior’s distinctive form, the new Avior II is the epitome of high performance and visual elegance in a loudspeaker which although modest in size, delivers authentic, full range sound.
Like all Rockport Technologies loudspeakers, the Avior II has an extremely low resolution floor, and its sound remains coherent and resolved, as well as maintaining dynamic fidelity even when played at extremely low volumes. This ability to resolve low-level information is critical to reproducing the artistic nuance of music, as well as resolving the spatial cues of the recording environment, and enables the loudspeaker to transport the listener back to the original musical event.”

Nano Crystal Formula (NCF) – Nano Crystalline, Ceramic and Carbon Powder
Incorporated into select Furutech products, Nano Crystal² Formula — NCF is comprised of a special crystalline material that has two “active” properties. First, it generates negative ions that eliminate static and secondly, it converts thermal energy into far-infrared. Furutech then combines this remarkable crystalline material with nano-sized ceramic particles and carbon powder for their additional “Piezo Effect” damping properties. The resulting Nano Crystal² Formula is the ultimate electrical and mechanical damping material – only found in Furutech products!
