GENERATION 5 Audio Cables for Superior Music and Film Systems

GENERATION 5 Reference and OPUS Series cables have the most demanding specifications and require the most skill and expertise to produce. These ultimate products are the consummate expression of Transparent’s audio cable design process. All technology advances start with these Transparent flagship products and then trickle down to all other audio cables in the Transparent line-up. Transparent is committed to including as much technology as possible at each performance and budget level.

One of the services Transparent provides to the original owner of any Transparent Reference or OPUS Series product is cable recalibration and reconfiguration for new system components. For example, if a customer gets a new amplifier, Transparent will optimize the networks on the existing speaker cables to work more ideally with the different output impedance of the new amplifier and reterminate the spades if necessary on the amplifier side to provide a perfect fit on the binding posts of the new amplifier.


GENERATION 5 Premium Series Ultra:

Compared to Super Cables, Ultra Cables have higher quality parts, tighter specifications, and superior circuit design that requires more skill and time to construct. Ultra Cables transfer more low frequency energy, reveal a greater sense of musical space, and provide greater tonal and harmonic accuracy than Super Cables.

Ultra_RCA_InterconnectGENERATION 5 Premium Series Ultra RCA Interconnect:

Ultra RCA Interconnects transfer the richness, authority, and spaciousness of the best music sources in ways other RCA cables in the same price range can not approach. Every length of Transparent Ultra RCA Interconnect has its own network design calibrated for that specific length and type of cable so that all the Ultra cables in a system perform at the same level, regardless of their individual lengths. Ultra networks and cable work together to reject noise for cleaner, clearer, more focused signal transmission. Ultra transfers audio signals more efficiently and over a wider range than Super, resulting in greater musical impact and realism. Ultra works exceedingly well with virtually any type of system component so they do not require factory calibration when changing system components.
