My dealer suggested I keep using these rather than change the links to Tellurium Q Black links.
A possible change of links could be to change the Chord Signature links to Tellurium Q Ultra Black links.

Well if you're happy with the signature links I don't see any reason to replace them for Q black. But in my case I bought the speaker cable and 2 sets of links(tri-wire binding post)at a great discount. .When I was using the epic supertwin I just bought some bare wire odyssey links which has exactly the same conductor as the epic without the shielding, just to balance the current.

So, a 9 metre pair of new Tellerium Q Black speaker cables would cost me about £800? That's a lot more than what I paid for the speakers I'd be using them on. Tail wagging the dog.
Nice to hear you are enjoying your system.
however the question does raise itself, Whats wrong with NACA5, I mean naim use it on their Reference kit as well??
But each to their own. glad you happy

The OP didn't need a 9 m pair, but a 2 M pair, and in the context of his speakers, gave him a worthwhile improvement.......nobody is suggesting that it makes sense to spend more on S/C, than speakers.
"Everything has been said before, but since nobody listens we have to keep going back and beginning all over again." André Gide
TB, there is nothing "wrong" with NACA5, in the same way as with many other brands......this doesn't mean, that something else might not improve on it. I happen to think TQ lives up to the hype and is worth checking out, if in the market for some cable.
A 2 metre pair of Tellerium Q Black would cost about £140. For the OP, is his Michell Gyro placed on a brick wall mounted wallshelf or is it on a floor mounted rack / support / table? If it's on a floor mounted support then his turntable would benefit from being placed much further away from his speakers or from being placed on a wallshelf.
There is nothing wrong with Naca5, It's just the Tellurium black works better in my system. I'm a big fan of Naim but If I can improve my system(to my ears) even not using the same brand I will go for it within my budget.Cheers!
The Michell gyro se is placed on the top shelf of sound organisation rack.I replaced the thin glass shelf with a thick(2cm)acrylic with 4 sorbothane feet and put 4 sound dead steel isofeet on each of the tt feet including the motor.Cheers!
Iceman, I have 40's as well & am getting a shot of some TQ Black tomorrow. Did you get 2 sets of the links as well ?
Yes mate,2 sets of links. Each pair are still joined together unlike other biwire links.The z plugs are a perfect fit for the 40s.I'm very confident that you'll be amazed
Iceman - are you using spades into the the bass of the 40's the banana jumps to the mid/tweeter ?
Meassage to the team at What Hi Fi.
Can we please have a review of Tellurium cables please.
I too am after a speaker cable upgrade and was looking at these cables - their web site certainly talks the talk - I cant afford the Black version was thinking of the basic one - any news please ? Or could you possibly talk to them for a sample ?
Only just picked up on this one . . . I did a comparison recently, Linn K20, Tellurim Blue and Black. dont wast your money on the Blue, its slow and vailed IMHO.
The Black is excelent, however, my Linn K20 was so close, matching it almost blow for blow, I use the word 'almost' . . . The Black has just a tade more openes perhaps, but the K20 is warmer, having a round, open presentation that I like, very analogue . . . but the Black does fall down at the base end the K20 is markedley fuller here.
Its when one compares cost it all pops into focus. Tellurim Blue @ £16.50 pm, Black @ £46 pm and the Linn K20 @ £5 (yes five) pm. Scores out of 10 . . . Blue 3, Black 10 , Linn K20 9.5. Value for money is Linn K20.
This is IMHO and relevent only in my system . . .
I got them and they sound all right to me

I made the mistake of taking a home demo of the Tellurium black speaker cable. WOW
This is the most surprising and impressive speaker cable I've heard. I was looking for something to replace my Chord comany silversceen as the thickness of the chord is making the re-jigged room a bit of a pain. I read the reviews and took a punt. The dealer allowed me 4 weeks testing at ome and if I wasn't happy a full refund was sat waiting.
They simply blew my chord's away. Was just like someone had removed a haze or curtain from the music. Better right across the board. Bass, midrange and treble all sweeter more detailed and smoother.
Well worth the price. Just give them a try.
keep on rocking
Where ever you go, You're already there.

Glad you liked them.
Generally speaking, I've found that a meaningful opinion can only be formed after listening to something.
