I bought the Blue II cables, I was SOLD. Then I bought the Black II... SOLD again completely! Though, I never heard of this brand, yet I'm absolutely satisfied with the quality they deliver. Highly recommend.
Black II Speaker Cable
Black was the first cable from Tellurium Q and they knew they were on to something special when they took the prototypes to various dealers for their comments and input. One in particular would not believe that it could match the somewhat thicker more expensive cable in his demonstration system.
They sat down and listened to some of his familiar music tracks, then they swapped the cable for Tellurium Q Black. He sat forward, looked at them and quite seriously asked what else they had done to his system while they were changing the cables over. It was only when he swapped the cables himself a couple of times he believed the evidence of his ears.
So why Black II? Despite Black winning multiple awards, surprising owners with it’s performance and more people than ever choosing to use it in their systems?
Tellurium Q have been learning and developing, especially in the last few years and have come up with a way to make this little gem even better. The only thing to do was to give it to their customers. Switch Black for Black II and it is completely obvious which is which. Once you hear the difference, it is also completely obvious why they felt compelled to upgrade Black in the way that they have.
We think you will get more from your music and hope that you love Black II as much as we do.
Note: All Tellurium Q Speaker cables can be bi-wired by adding an extra cable during manufacture.
Warm and forgiving for systems with a slight edge or for those who like a more smooth laid back presentation. Blue and Ultra Blue are especially good for AV and home cinema.
Smooth, fine detailed and great resolution while actually reducing apparent harshness. Music is presented as a coherent, organic whole, with a jaw-dropping sense of realism and naturalness.
Totally uncoloured, acting as a wide open channel sounding unforced, vivid and dynamic with phenomenal resolution, transparency and natural tonal colours. All this while sounding extremely analogue and coherent, from the exceptional top end extension to bottom with finely detailed, separated bass notes.
Reviews & User Comments
“There is a lot of information, and there is a lot of bass. The overall pleasure of listening to music is exceptional. With this one song, Black 2 captivated my heart at once”.

“It is hard to understand what has happened here, the last few weeks of exposure to Tellurium Q have changed my perception of HiFi and what can be achieved.”

“There is no doubt in my mind that the Tellurium Q Black II speaker cables are a supremely magnificent product that virtually captures and reproduces the ultimate in high definition sound quality.
The Tellurium Q Black II Speaker cable will be the first product reviewed so far in “The Sound Advocate” that will be awarded an outstanding rating with regards to its performance and value!”

“considering what the Tellurium Black II speaker cable achieves in my system at its modest price, for me it represents incredibly good value for money. There is absolutely no snake oil here and it comes very recommended to try out.”

“The Tellurium Q Black II speaker cable is a great standard of what an available cable should bring to systems.”

“Finally, inserted in the main audio chain, they have shown they have little fear of top competitors. Without making think that these little serpents have equalled the performance of a cable that costs twice as much, I must admit that I was surprised by the level of performance.
They have had a lot of good reviews because they are worth it and keep their promises: I am stepping up to the chorus and I tell you to go and listen to them.
I would buy them because they are fine, I would buy them because they are absolutely inexpensive and I would buy them because they are discreet and not intrusive.”

“If you compare it to other cables, even my previous ones, by a well-known American company, you can get the impression that other producers are combining how to stand out from the crowd, and Tellurium combines how to best give music back.”

“I changed to the Black II after a few tracks and was so flabbergasted by the improvement again that I didn’t bother going back to the Black.
It really was night and day. What struck me the most was how natural and clear the cable sounded with no nasties or obvious short comings. Now I know it can’t be perfect, and Geoff told me wait till you hear our pricier cables (oh dear), but I can’t remember hearing such a difference so easily, which makes my life a lot easier both as a reviewer and simply a listener. Isn’t that what good kit should be about.”

“Black II is a completely different cable than Black. .. The smoothness of this cable is unique. Looking at both cables, not knowing that you need to look for a Roman “double” on a black outer jacket, we would say that they are the same cables. But let’s listen to them with a few songs, it does not take much time to come to the conclusion that really big changes took place between the new and the old version.”
– Wojciech Pacula, Hi Fidelity.plRead The Full Review
“..the Black II is a no-brainer compared with the original cable. It is really superb, whatever it is made of. …..the presentation becomes fuller and more rounded. The bass is also much fuller and yet more controlled than with the older cable.”
– HiFi ChoiceRead The Full Review
“even those of you who own the original Black cables should take a serious look at the new Black II cables.”
– Paul Rigby, The Audiophile ManRead The Full Review
“Alongside the Black IIs I also received a set of the original cable for comparison – and the step-change in performance is apparent. Improved tonality was the first thing that struck me, especially with acoustic instruments. Keith Jarrett’s piano on ‘The Carnegie Hall Concert’ had more body and weight to it with a rich, resonant presentation. Here was the sound of a real instrument playing. While the original Black cable was good this new version takes all its qualities and builds on them with a sense that it is letting even more of the musical information through. Timing, especially, seemed better and more focussed with a total absence of smear or haze around instruments. An update to an already outstanding loudspeaker cable, the new Black II cables improve on the originals to a remarkable degree.”
– Jon Myles, HiFi WorldRead The Full Review
“The bass is very good – accurate, fast, not monotonous, even in the bottom border. Attack is fast, feeling that improved damping acoustics. The sound in general comfortable: a lot of details that do not detract from the overall musical picture.”
– Nikolay Efremov, Audio VideoRead The Full Review
“Strings contain texture, bass has a real heft and vocals sound more relaxed and secure in their presentation.”
– Paul Rigby, Hi-Fi WorldRead The Full Review
“…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.”
– HiFi Plus Issue 75, 2010Read The Full Review
“I’ve listened to complete system upgrades that have not provided the improvement in transparency and naturalness that Tellurium Q Black provides.”
