MAGNUM OPUS Phono Interconnects are designed to be an extension to the finest phono cartridges available today. They work well with other TRANSCENDENT Transparent System Companions. When the goal is no-compromise performance at the absolute highest level and experiences that can make you feel as if you are listening from the best seat in the concert hall, MAGNUM OPUS Audio Cables will ensure that your system can take you there.
MAGNUM OPUS Phono Interconnect is the crowning achievement in the finest, no-compromise LP playback systems. Crafted from the same cable, connectors, and vibration damped carbon fiber network housings as MAGNUM OPUS RCA Interconnect, all network components are matched and measured at the edge of what technicians can control in production. MAGNUM OPUS Phono Interconnect is handcrafted in the USA and provides the perfect complement to the special needs of delicate, extremely low-level phono signals.
MAGNUM OPUS Phono Interconnect is a significant performance upgrade compared to OPUS Phono Interconnect. It transfers well-defined bass energy down through the bottom octave and provides a quieter interface for low-level audio signals than OPUS Phono Interconnect.
Network components are also specifically chosen and matched more closely to suit the electrical characteristics of the cable and its length, and the network itself is calibrated more precisely to the electrical output characteristics of your phono cartridge. We also take into consideration the electrical characteristics of the tonearm wiring itself because it is an extension of the phono cartridge and the phono interconnect. This extra level of precision adds considerable time to the painstaking manufacturing process, but the results in your system are worth it: from feeling and hearing the full power of the orchestra to every nuance of tonal shading and harmonic resolution within the performance space. It’s a strong affirmation of just how great your system is.
Vibration and resonance control also go to new heights with MAGNUM OPUS. The components that comprise each network are encased in electrically neutral epoxy and surrounded by a large carbon fiber network housing that has been contoured specifically for the purpose of reducing standing wave reflections. Carbon fiber is nonmagnetic, light, and stiff. The thinner, stronger, larger network housing provides a larger cavity for damping epoxy loading, and the non-magnetic qualities of carbon fiber allow the free and full expansion of electromagnetic fields which results in more accurate transmission of micro dynamics and harmonic music information.
Transparent customizes all MAGNUM OPUS Phono Interconnects to suit each specific system set up with RCA, DIN, or XLR connections, including differentially balanced phono preamp inputs. Cables fitted with the custom Transparent DIN connector have a sleek, contoured coupler to create a smooth transition between cable and termination and are individually fabricated to precise tonearm, turntable suspension, and phono preamp requirements. 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.
MAGNUM OPUS Phono must be calibrated and configured for your specific phono cartridge, tonearm-turntable combination, and phono preamp. Contact Transparent or a Transparent dealer to share the details of your system components and room layout.
