RE: Chord Chorus2 Vs. Tellurium Ultra Black

I would rather not influence your decision.

If you don't clearly hear the difference, then it's not worth changing.

Nb. Also try TQ Black, as it may give you what you need.

RE: Chord Chorus2 Vs. Tellurium Ultra Black

RE: Chord Chorus2 Vs. Tellurium Ultra Black

Oh dear, sorry to hear that.

Just goes to show people should not believe the hype / everything you read as everyones hearing / system is different, and to try and audition as much as you can before actually parting with cash.

PS: I don't think it was purely the fault of the WHFSAV review.

Loads of second hand expensive kit!

RE: Chord Chorus2 Vs. Tellurium Ultra Black

 wireworld put an arrow on their RCA cable indicating the signal direction, how you should connect the cable so the signal flows from a to b in a magical, unique way?  did they use special in-connectors, then the cable able to send signal one way and magic out-connectors? what hi fi wont help an innocent ( I meant experienced) by prising cables.. 

"I bought £200 0,5 meter cable" - Oh dear, sorry to hear that.

buy whatever you want people.. they sell bottled water for hundreds while tap water is free and probably better...


anyway, I dont care that much on the subject.. just wanted to say I dont hear ( and my friends and family) any difference in mentioned cables:-)

RE: Chord Chorus2 Vs. Tellurium Ultra Black

I changed my RCA from CHORD CRIMSON PLUS to CHORUS2 the difference was huge the sound is  clearer , more analytical and detailed .

changed also my speaker cabels form Chord Carnival Silver to Tellurium Q Black it is almost I changed my whole system the bass is more 

strong  and tight , much better sound stage and details .

My conclusion is that the  cabels are  very important in the system chain .

Actually you did not hear any difference between the old and new cables at all, (Neither did anybody else) however your brain is telling you it sounds better as you were expecting it to sound better and to justify the extortionate cost. (If you had tested using a proper double blind test you would have saved yourself a shed load of money)

... at least I've got 'peace of mind'... I have £250 worth of wireworld cables  ROFL not cheap throw aways.

... or maybe my cheap set up cannot show true wireworld potential?

I can definitely hear our new fridge freezer is louder than old one and we paid twice as much for the new one and bought fancy brand.  :cheer:

RE: Chord Chorus2 Vs. Tellurium Ultra Black

That was no surprise as the Chorus is 4-grade higher than the Crimson.  I had Chorus Reference earlier combined w/ the Odyssey 4 bi-wire, had to sell it due to some noise issues with my current system.

Ah, bless. The old your hearing isn't sensitive enough line. Right up there with "night and day" and "your system isn't resolving enough". 

What's being a musician got to do with it? Does that give you some magical gift mere mortals don't get at birth?

Out the back of my CD player I have two types if interconnect: a pair of £220 Atlas Navigators, and a Fisual coax. £3.99.

Differences are so minimal, so minimal, it's hardly with talking about. The difference between those and most other called I've had likewise.

You'll get more mileage out of moving your speakers six inches either way and changing their position than you will out of mucking about with nice looking cables in fancy boxes. And I've been through plenty over the years. My hearing is good enough too. Just sayin'...

Before buying I am making a long  demo in my house and I am not just throwing money away and there is a big difference , nice looking cables in fancy boxes isn't my cup of tea !

I noticed that in digital cabels the  difference is very minimal indeed as you advised but not on RCA and speaker cables .

RE: Chord Chorus2 Vs. Tellurium Ultra Black

Sorry mate, but there's minimal difference.  Been through plenty - maybe a dozen over the last few years.  A pair of £8 Computergear RCA phonos against the Navigators.  Again, minnimal difference.  Sorry, but you're talking cods.  If you want to spend £00s, that's your lookout.  You'll get more mileage out of finding better recording and moving speakers around.  Cheaper, more fun, less claptrap.

RE: Chord Chorus2 Vs. Tellurium Ultra Black

Fine by me, not my money.  From member DF96 on the DIY Audio site, re: TQ cables:-

 

However, assuming that these cables merely have a silly name rather than a silly substance I had a quick look on their website. No meaningful technical details, apart from a couple of graphs which suggest low capacitance (which might have a minor effect on treble) and woffle about improving bass. Their 'test' involves sending a 1us pulse, which seems a bit unrealistic for an audio speaker cable. The graphs seem to show the normal exponential response of a CR first order filter, but they don't say what R they used. I assume they hope to impress people who don't understand what they are looking at.

He is talking about speaker cables, you want an interconnect, but the same principles apply.  Whether or not you buy them, I couldn't care less, but as before, I've been through plenty of different cables from different manufacturers from £8-£225.  Reckon I'm more comfortable in my views and experience than buying the waffle and a fancy box.
