I don't own it, but I've heard it. I think it's a must hear within its price range as (imo) it is great VFM. It gives a "fast", detailed and musical presentation...which will reveal the characteristics of your system.

Thanks Cno, I've just ordered a 2m pair with the biwire links to try them at home for 4 weeks and the seller said I can return them for a full refund if I'm not totally happy. I also want to try the ultra black but they are too expensive for my budget.

That's the way it should be done.....report back with your verdict.

I was looking for WHF reviews about these brand but I could'nt find any.If the Tellurium Q black can do better than my existing Chord epic I will definitely keep them and sell the chord.

IMO It will, but all these things are subjective. If I was a betting man....... :shifty:

I have thought of these as well and they are still on my list for 2012, but so many things to buy. I have only read good things about Q black, so give us some impressions when you got them. Here from some of the reviews :

Cavernous acoustic space.....palpable sense of reality...good sense of timing and pitch...the sound was controlled and didn’t harden as the volume increased...even tonal balance.”
Hi Fi News (Feb 2010 edition)

“More incisive nature than the Blue..there is excellent focus.. Strings contain texture, bass has a real heft and vocals sound more relaxed and secure in their presentation”
Extract from HiFi World, August 2010

”...offers insight into the way the instruments are being played. That is rare at this price. This is a very communicative, engaging and capable presentation, making it the most natural thing to just forget about listening to the system and simply enjoy the music.”
Hi Fi + Issue 75, 2010

I have been regularly recommending Telurium Q, as I think it should be on any shortlist where it's in budget. IMO. It's a shame that it's not better known on here.....but I believe it gradually will be.

There was this chap from the other forum site which he compared the tellurium q black vs his chord signature and he prefers the q black. The tellurium Q has got 5 Globes by HiFi World for every cable and given product of the year by HiFi Plus. And WHF have'nt reviewed the company's product yet since lauched in 2010?:cry:

It's really a shame that it is not well known beside being a british company:doh:

Well we help a little here. Ofcause system matching is always crucial, so maybe a bass heavy or relaxed system is not perfect for Q black, but just speculation.

I had Chord Epic speaker cables together with Chord Chorus 2 interconnect with my Cyrus kit.

I thoroughly enjoyed it but as a precursor to possibly changing my speakers I tried the Tellurium Q Black speaker cable together with Tellurium Q Black interconnect.

The difference was amazing, with much more detail and controlled bass. I was first concerned that it would be fatigueing to listen to but after a few weeks of demoing that was not the case at all.

I bought both Tellurium items and continue to enjoy the sound and have yet to decide whether or not I want to change my speakers as the cables have made such an improvement!

Thanks Triggy,

Have you tried theTellurium black speaker cable with your chord chorus 2?Or did you try to mix both and what do you think the most significant,is it the tellurium speaker cable or the interconnect? I'm currently using chord anthem2 din from cdx2 to 202 which I prefer than the hiline.

I see you have Black Ravioli pads.....another good product. It's nice to see a fellow "nutcase" out there. :)

Black Ravioli..such a funny name :)! Cno do you use them for what? The amp? Do they work efficiently? Is that an UK company?

I have had demoed the black ravioli at home with good results. They work best with my nap250.2 and hicap2. I did'nt hear much difference with my cd player though.

The results can be unpredictable, though it often works well under components with a big transformer (amps; especially tube amps) and power supplies. It can also make things sound worse.

I did mix both and found that the Tellurium Q Black speaker cable and Tellurium Q Black interconnect was the best combination.

A good dealer will let you try these at home with your kit, then let your ears decide!

Good luck!

Hi Triggy, do you also try some of the higher og lower line of their speaker cables, and if so was the T. Q. Black the best compared to price and quality ?

I get so hungry when you talk about ravioli, I have to jump at my lunch right away :grin:

I can see that you're using chord signature jumper links.So before the signal reach the speaker drivers(highs-mid)they will pass through the signature links?

Well the Tellurium Q black arrived this morning.First let me pick my jaw up from the floor!Yes thats how good this cable is.Ok from the box the Q black seems look ordinary,thin and lightweight compare to my epic supertwin which is thick and weighs a ton.Plugged in straight to my system and played Acoustic Alchemy cd,Oh my..Oh my..Am I just dreaming...?First noticeable improvement is the very detailed,clean and very open presentation of each and every tracks I played.There's a lot of space between instrument and very precise in every note.Every strum of the guitar sound sublime.Next is Eva Cassidy's songbird cd,Eva's voice just floats in the air as if she was there singing in front of me and no harshness or edgyness at all.Next is Metallica's cd playing Nothing Else Matters,Wow!Don't need a ticket to watch them live.The bass is so tight as if I was struck by a sledge hammer!And to all other tracks i played the cymbals just shimmer from nowhere. I can hear every tiny detail in most of my cd collection without being bright or harsh.This is the quality of sound I was looking for since I built my first system. It's like adding xps to my cdx2 which sound more analog and tamed the bit forwardness without sacrificing the detail.IMHO the Tellurium black lift my naim set up to the next upper level and now the ATC scm40s sounds at their best.This is the best upgrade I've had EVER!{not run-in yet..):bounce:
