We can burn-in your cable for up to 96 hours FREE of charge using our Nordost VIDAR cable burner. This is a £3000 machine that will optimise the performance of your cables from day one. This means the cables will be in optimum performance mode when you receive them, so you'll be able to make a performance assessment quickly rather than waiting 70 hours+ of usage. The result of conditioning cables with the Nordost VIDAR is, improved sound staging, increased detail, and an overall more musical presentation. Please Note: we are unable to burn-in cables with stripped bare ends or BFA-only plugs. (This does not apply to BFA/Banana plugs). Cables are burnt-in for the selected period AFTER your order has been processed. This service is offered at Future Shop's discretion and we cannot guarantee all burn-in requests are fully completed during busy periods.

Tellurium Q Black was Tellurium Q's first cable 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 his somewhat thicker more expensive cable that was in his demonstration system.

Tellurium Q sat down and listened to some of the dealers familiar music tracks. Then they swapped the cable for Tellurium Q Black. He sat forward, looked at Tellurium Q 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 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.

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.

Contact Enhancer Option

To ensure the best possible connection between your system, Future Shop recommends the DeoxIT Gold G-Series contact enhancer.

DeoxIT Gold is carefully applied to the plug contacts of your cable and is a unique conditioning solution designed to improve conductivity and provide long-lasting protection on gold, base metals and other precious metal contacts and connections. DeoxIT Gold penetrates plated surfaces, molecularly bonding to the base metals to seal and protect both surfaces.

The benefits of applying DeoxIT gold are:

  • Improved Conductivity
  • Maintained optimum signal quality
  • Reduced wear & abrasion
  • Prevents fretting/dendrite corrosion
  • Forms a protective anti-tarnishing coating
  • Stabilises connections between similar and dissimilar metals
  • Reduces arcing, RFI and intermittent connections

Please select this option from the above ‘Contact Enhancer’ drop-down menu and our engineers will apply the contact solution to your cable connectors prior to shipping.

Tellurium Q Black II Pursuit of Perfect Systems Best Analogue Cable 2018 Award

"The Black II speaker cables are flexible, discrete, could easily fit under carpets or rugs and as such would be very easy to live with in nearly all domestic situations. They are a very light speaker cable and are therefore very well suited to use with book shelf speakers sitting on top of stands. All these often forgotten factors coupled with the overall sound quality at their price point are the reason I can happily award them Best Analogue Cable of 2018. They are a great introduction to what Tellurium Q are all about and if you like what these do, you will love what the other cables do higher up in the range."

Equipment Review - Hi-Fi World - June 2017

"An update to an already outstanding loudspeaker cable, the new Black II cables improve on the originals to a remarkable degree." (Read More)

Equipment Review - Hi-Fi World - June 2017

“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.pl

Tellurium Q Black II Hi-Fi Pig Recommended

“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.”

Ian Ringstead - HiFi Pig

Tellurium Q Black II Stereo Times Most Wanted Components

“This is definitely a big win for Tellurium Q’s Geoff Merrigan and company. To state it plainly; there is not a speaker cable that I have heard that comes close to the Black II’s performance and whose cost roughly translates to less than $150/meter. The cables are not big or thick but are built very nicely and come with your choice of bananas, spades or both.

Tellurium Q plays it close to the vest when it comes to technical information, but as far as sonics go, I was greatly impressed by their performance. I spent a lot of time crawling around between my speakers and amps, swapping them in and out and back in because I could not believe how well they performed. They performed equally as well on planar speakers as they did with dynamics. I found their sound to be smooth over-all, with an open and airy top-end, and with extended bass and a slightly warm midrange.”

Free Cable Burn-In Service Option Using The Nordost Vidar Machine

 

Please Note: We are unable to burn-in cables with stripped bare ends or BFA plugs. Cables are burnt-in for the selected time period AFTER your order has been processed. Custom-length cables are burnt-in for the selected time period AFTER they have be terminated by the manufacturer or our engineers. 

Our cable burn-in service is a non-chargeable service and is provided by Future Shop at its discretion. We will attempt to fulfil all burn-in requests for the specified time periods. However, during extremely busy periods, we regret we may not be able to meet demand for all requests due to the limited connections available on the Nordost Vidar cable conditioning machines.

We are pleased to offer a free cable burn-in service for this cable when purchased through Future Shop. The Nordost VIDAR cable burn-in machine combines three distinct 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.

 

Nordost Vidar Burn-in Machine

 

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 is set up to 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.
