The Reference line did not improve the sound; it took it into another realm."

    Transparent Hosts Jimi Hendrix Event
    On March 8th, Transparent hosted a special CD/DVD release party in conjunction with Maine music retailer Bull Moose Music.

    The new Jimi Hendix album "Valleys of Neptune" is made up of unreleased studio recordings from 1969. The album released worldwide on Tuesday, March 9th, so the people who attended Transparent's event were among the first in the world to hear this music.

    Two special guests gave presentations: Bob Thompson (musician, recording engineer, guitar teacher at University of Maine and Berklee) and Bob Ludwig (one of the finest mastering engineers in the world, founder of Gateway Mastering). Both guests talked about the album and recordings from the 1969 era.
    As a kick-off for the evening, the audience watched a DVD of Hendrix's performance of the National Anthem at Woodstock. The film was shown on Transparent's home theater demonstration system.

    Following the film, Thompson gave an hour-long live demonstration of Hendrix's techniques and artistry, using vintage guitars and special-effects pedals. He deconstructed several familiar Hendrix songs, explaining their structure as well as demonstrating many specific examples of Hendrix's playing prowess.

    Ludwig gave the audience an overview of the entire production flow from recording to mastering to manufacturing. He also recalled aspects of the day he spent with Hendrix in a New York City mastering room, prior to the release of "Electric Ladyland."

    Following the two presentations, the audience listened to the entire album played over Transparent's state of the art Music and Film Studio system. The album contains over an hour of music: Stone Free, Valleys of Neptune, Bleeding Heart, Hear My Train A Comin', Mr. Bad Luck, Sunshine of Your Love, Lover Man, Ships Passing Through the Night, Fire/Red House, and Lullaby for the Summer/Crying Blue Rain.

  • The Link and The Wave chosen by the abso!ute sound for their "18 Greatest Bargains in High-end Audio
    read more


    Surveying the entire field of components, from analog and digital sources to electronics, cables and loudspeakers, the abso!ute sound's AV Guide has just published their list of the 18 best buys in audio. The Link interconnect and The Wave speaker cable are listed in fifth place out of the 18 winners. The AV Guide editors said,

    "Although we have experience only with Transparent's lower-priced offerings (at the moment), what we've heard has been extremely impressive. The $85 The Link interconnect brings more than a taste of high-end interconnects to an entry-level price. Similarly, the $200 The Wave speaker cable is a bargain, offering superior tonality, wider dynamics, and a more open soundstage. The $105 High-Performance Powerlink AC cable is a vast improvement over stock AC cords, and just might be the most cost-effective upgrade possible in an entry-level system. The Powerwave 8 conditioner is also an extremely cost-effective upgrade, rendering wider dynamics, smoother timbres, and a greater sense of musical involvement."
