What is hardwired? Introduced at CES 2015, hardwired by Transparent is an exciting expansion of the Transparent Audio product family. Designed by Transparent and manufactured to our very exacting standards, hardwired delivers the performance and value Transparent is known for at a truly accessible price. The hardwired line-up has better connections for every system: HDMI, Ethernet, USB, USB mini, and mobile audio cables; RCA interconnect, balanced interconnect, speaker cable, a 3-conductor power cord, and a 2-conductor power cord. These colorful and flexible cables start at $30 and bring more exciting and involving music, movie, and game experiences within reach to those who are beginning to explore ways to improve sound quality in their home entertainment and music systems. Transparent Audio created hardwired for music and film lovers who seek an experience well beyond what ordinary cables provide. hardwired benefits directly from Transparent's 30 years in Maine, USA, designing and handcrafting the world's finest cables and power conditioning products.
