This is a matter if semantics, really.Yes but if your equipment is adding noise or picking say RF, then removing it will improve the transparency?
It similar to saying a digital RAW image is the recording and it can't be improved or made more transparent.
If your equipment is picking up noise then the circuit or signal path is not "transparent" enough so by addressing the issue you are increasing "transparent".
And any and all commercial equipment can be improved or modded to greater achieve (measured) "transparency". Which may or may not be what the end user is looking for.
