XL Phono Interconnect (RPH) is for discerning analog playback lovers with superior LP playback systems. XLPH uses the same cable, connectors, and network housings as XLSE. Phono interconnects at the XL level will help you extract the last measure of performance from your existing LP playback investments. Specifically designed for the delicate, low signal output of a phono cartridge, XLPH effortlessly reveals greater levels of low-level harmonic and spatial detail, the smooth continuity of analog dynamic range, and the rich tonal quality of music.
XLPH is a significant performance upgrade compared to REFERENCE Phono Interconnect because its network components are specifically chosen and matched more closely to suit the electrical characteristics of the cable and its length. The network itself is also calibrated more precisely to the electrical output characteristics of your phono cartridge. XLPH transfers well-defined bass energy further down into the bottom octave and provides a quieter interface for low-level audio signals than REFERENCE Phono Interconnect.
Transparent customizes XL Phono Interconnects to suit each specific system set up with RCA, DIN, or XLR connections, including differentially balanced phono preamp inputs. Custom DIN configurations fit 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.
XLPH 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 XLPH recalibrations at no charge in the event that a component or phono cartridge change requires network or configuration adjustments.
XL Phono Interconnects are upgradeable to OPUS and MAGNUM OPUS level phono interconnects.
