Transparent Reference XLR

Transparent Reference XLR


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.

RBL is available in 2 versions: High Z for high output impedance and Low Z for low output impedance source components and preamplifiers.

Contact Transparent or a Transparent dealer to determine which RBL version is the best fit for your source components or preamplifier.

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