Tellurium Q Black and my first tweak in a year....
I recently moved my speakers closer together (I was told to do so!) and soon realised that my thick Chord Epic speaker cable was a problem all coiled up. After some googling, I read about Tellurium Q Black (TQB) speaker cable and some reviews suggested that it beats the very good Epic. To fund my planned purchase, I sold my interconnect (Chord Signet) and replaced it with a Merlin Verdi and then plunged for the TQB. I picked up the cable from the post office yesterday and connected up immediately.
Well, I'm very pleased. Everything sounds better. All the attributes of the Epic cable are there but everything is cleaner still. It would have been interesting to hear the TQB with my old interconnect but I will probably get the matching Tellurium at some stage now - not that there is anything wrong with the Merlin. It really is amazing how this flat, plain looking cable can do what it does!
I was very happy with my system before and it's even better now and hasn't cost me anything. It makes me wonder what a DAC upgrade will bring to the party as I don't see how it could get much better - obviously I will have to try! I've been chewing over the Moon DACs (100D and 300D) and the Wyed 4 Sound DAC 1 and recently the Bel Canto DACs have caught my eye too.
