REFERENCE Phono Interconnect (RPH) is for discerning analog playback lovers with high-level components. RPH uses the same cable, connectors, and network housings as RSE. Phono interconnects at the REFERENCE level dramatically expand the realism of the sonic landscape that only LP playback can provide. Specifically designed for the delicate, low signal output of a phono cartridge, RPH effortlessly reveals a staggering level of low-level harmonic and spatial detail, the smooth continuity of analog dynamic range, the rich tonal quality of music, and transfers extended, well-defined bass energy.
RPH is a significant performance upgrade compared to ULTRA Phono Interconnect. Reference level cables are the first products in the Transparent family to be custom calibrated for the specific electrical output characteristics of your components and phono cartridges. Additionally, the network components are more precisely matched to the cable’s inherent electrical properties and length. Transparent provides a custom DIN connector option fabricated to precise tonearm, turntable suspension, and phono preamp requirements. A sleek, contoured coupler creates a smooth transition between cable and termination. Transparent DIN couplers are offered with two methods of strain relief to keep the weight of the cable from affecting the performance of your turntable and tonearm system.
RPH is calibrated to the precise electrical characteristics of your phono cartridge and needs to be ideally configured for your tonearm-turntable combination and phono preamp. Contact Transparent or a Transparent dealer to share the details of your phono playback system.
Warranty registration not only extends the Transparent Warranty to 5 years, it provides the original owner with RPH recalibrations at no charge in the event that a component or phono cartridge change requires network or configuration adjustments.
REFERENCE Phono Interconnects are upgradeable to XL level phono interconnects and above.
