I haven't, but I know they are very highly rated.  I also know that people who rate them highly have been very impressed with these http://www.gspaudio.co.uk/spatia-speaker-cable.htm

I have heard it, and imo it's a great choice. It's fast, detailed, clean and musical, with great bass. It won't hide a problem, but shouldn't exagerate it.

Can you borrow some to try, as I think you will be impressed.

RE: TELLURIUM Q BLACK speaker cabels ?

If you like them you may want to consider Graham Slee Spatia - I was invoilved a little bit in their testing and they apparently are similar/ as good as Telerium Q black but about £100 cheaper.

That information came from one of the proper testers- he owns TQ Black.  They will also let you do a free home demo so you can try them out first - its def best to do that where you can I think - home demo is a real luxury.  You can get a home dem of TQ Black as well but you have to buy them upfront.

I am not saying this because I have the cables, but because of the information given to me by one of the testers - no bias here

Graham Spatia is seriously good cable, if you like a detailed sound with no hasrhness at all and just space around everything you listen to - here is a link to a thread from his website where people have borrowed them and fed back what they think

Here is a link to my review of them when I got them on home demo.

I have no affiliation to the company, I just appreciated being involved in the testing and the service from them is personal which is rare nowdays so I feel its right to pass on this info to help them and fellow enthusiasts get great kit / sound

That is not always the case. My local dealer has demo sets that he will lend out. I also suspect Alex and Rob will not be doing so either, if their dem happens as planned.

Sorry Cno - I called a dealer asking for a dem set, but had to but them on 30 day return - I thought that was just policy

Nothing to be sorry for.

There is no doubt that if you rung out of the blue, to a dealer who didn't know you from Adam, you would have to pay for them. 

Rob, Alex and myself are known only too well by our local dealers!  :twisted:

RE: TELLURIUM Q BLACK speaker cabels ?

Where do you live and who is the dealer ??

 

I have a great Meridian dealer ij Audio Images but its up north, I am down south.  I could really do with a good dealer who is fairly local as well, not neccessarily a Meridian dealer (doesnt matter if is)

Indeed, we got ultra black speaker cables and graphite speaker cable with interconnects for an home demo. 

They are indeed very good...

Very nice cable in terms of construction. We actually took the whole let and went to visit Francis for a nice afternoon of music and wine. Then took the all stuff to robs place, rapidly connected the graphite to the AMS, listened for 15 min and left for dinner. So not time yet for proper listening. 

First impression is a great transparency and a looooot of details...is this our new reference? Too early to say...

RE: TELLURIUM Q BLACK speaker cabels ?

I changed from Chord Epic to Tellurium Q Black speaker cable in November 2011.

 

They provide an open, clean sound with a controlled bass.  Soundstage is very good too!

 

Prior to getting the Epic, I demoed Chord Carnival Silver Screen and found them extremely detailed but so fatiguing, went for the Epic.

 

The TQ Black, I'm my opinion, are well ahead of the very good Epic.

RE: TELLURIUM Q BLACK speaker cabels ?

I had a home demo (free btw) from Audio Destination in Devon of the TQ black SC's and jumper cables and for me, in my system, I could not hear any improvement on what I already have... really wanted to like them, as superbly made.
