Since 1997 Transparent's Reference Digital Cables have set the standard for ultimate digital signal transmission, but Transparent has a strong commitment to continue to push the parameters of the current state of the art.
Dielectric materials and extrusion techniques, conductor size and composition, impedance matching, shielding, and connector technology all affect noise and jitter in high-speed digital signals.
The new Transparent Reference XL 110-Ohm Digital Link is a new cable that uses these latest technical advances to reach a level of purity and ease never before achieved by any digital cable, even Transparent's own Reference 110-Ohm Digital Link. Reference XL 110-Ohm Digital Link uses Transparent Advanced Expanded Foam Technology for precise impedance control and low noise signal transmission. With 2 solid OFHC conductors that are significantly larger than Reference 110-Ohm Digital Link conductors, Reference XL 110-Ohm Digital Link has far more surface area with which to transfer digital signals accurately. It also features improved connector and termination technologies.
Reference XL 110-Ohm Digital Link achieves a new level of ease - both in dynamic range and in full frequency range - and is ideally suited to the very best separate digital components. Its extremely low noise floor allows it to reveal harmonic texture and spatial information in ways more natural and compelling than any other digital cable design we have ever tried or tested. .
TRANSPARENT'S NEW REFERENCE DIGITAL CABLE REDIFINES THE ART... AGAIN
Jacob Helibrun of The Absolute Sound magazine conclodes in his review of this cable:
"It didnít take long at all to realize that these cables take digital performance to a glorious place. If you have a high-end digital rig, then auditioning Transparent Reference XL is not a good idea. It is a must."
