Tellurium Q Black was Tellurium Q's first cable and they knew we 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 his somewhat thicker more expensive cable that was in his demonstration system.
Tellurium Q 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 us and quite seriously asked what else we 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 did he believe the evidence of his ears. He also stocked the Tellurium Q Black.
It is thin and it is small. By conventional thought it should not be able to do what it does and as well as it does it. That is why Tellurium Q have applied for a patent for one of the aspects that allows these cables to perform so well.
“Cavernous acoustic space.....palpable sense of reality...good sense of timing and pitch...the sound was controlled and did not harden as the volume increased...even tonal balance". Hi Fi News (Feb 2010 edition)
"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

We are pleased to offer a free cable burn-in service for this cable when purchased through us. The Nordost VIDAR cable burn-in machine combines three different functions all in one operation:
- It neutralises charges that build up around the cables and the insulation
- It provides a very wide band and deep conditioning into the conductor core, which produces changes in the way signals pass through the metal.
- It ultrasonically conditions the surface of the conductors.
The VIDAR uses a proprietary combination of composite and complex signals to condition the cables. Parts of the signal oscillate at ultra-low frequencies, while other parts are in ultra-high ranges which extend beyond the range of video frequencies. The signal bounces in a ping-ping ball-like fashion from one end of the cable to the other. During the burn-in process, ultra-low frequencies penetrate deep into the core of the cable. The ultra-high frequencies zip along the surface. This method of signal transmission a set up beat harmonics, or heterodynes, between the two complex waveforms. In the digital domain, this would be referred to as aliasing products. These beat frequencies penetrate all layers of the cable.
The design of the circuitry also has a unique feature which drives electrons above the conductor into the dielectric (or insulation) area. The VIDAR not only sends ping pong signals along the cable, it also sends a similar signal from the centre core to the outer shield in the case of interconnect cables. This function neutralises the electrical charges discussed above.
So what does that all mean to me?
The end result of conditioning cables with the Nordost VIDAR is improved sound staging, increased detail, and an overall more musical presentation.

About Tellurium Q
Tellurium Q tm is primarily an audio research and development (R&D) company that also manufactures products. R & D is at the centre of every decision they take and every product they make.
That is why Tellurium Q design and develop products starting with a completely blank canvas and ask “what is really happening with this process, in these materials” and build on solid fundamentals. That is why you may find that what they produce might look a little different from what you might expect but that is just because they are focused on how to get a better clearer sound. How something looks is of secondary importance because they are working for the serious audiophile and music lover who, like us,wants to hear more in their music. That may be the reason that although their a little company has only just appeared on the HiFi scene has immediately been awarded 5 Globes for an entire speaker cable range, awarded cables of the year for the ENTIRE cable range by HiFi Plus magazine and again product of the year by HIFi World in their Jan 2011 edition. All in the first 12 months!
Because Tellurium will not make a product that is just good or average, it has to be exceptional or they will not release it, that delayed the launch of their interconnect. While they had a product that was good and would stand up as well as any other cable it wasn't truly outstanding. So even though they were told that Tellurium Q's sales of speaker cable were being damaged by not having an interconnect to go with the cable they dug our heels in. There is just too much cable in the market now, so unless you can contribute something better and different why waste people’s time?
This is our promise and they are completely serious about it. When you buy a Tellurium Q tm audio product you will be getting what Tellurium believe to be the very best available in its price range.
