Transparent, for their part, says there are distinct advantages to their approach. They believe cables can essentially act as an antenna, so limiting bandwidth at certain frequencies is way to make sure nothing but the musical signal passes through. They also say the network adds some inductance, which helps with signal purity. Lastly, and a very important consideration, they say each cable can be calibrated so they will perform identically at any practical length. The cables are also directional, with arrows pointing the way for proper connection.
