If your system gets along well with the TQ Black you may not so much be the target audience for the Green, which - like the Blue - is forgiving for systems that need forgiving. I have the feeling your system is in the Black-Ultra arena, where the slightly softening aspect of the Blue-Green is not so important. I perceive, rightly or wrongly, that my Rega Brio-R-Apollo-R system is in the Blue-Green arena - but if I had I had a Cyrus 8A and equivalent CD player, I would be in Black-Ultra.

As far as i understand it, the TQ range is akin to Intel's microprocessor “tick” and "tock" stages - (roughly) the "tick" a stage of technology, the "tock" a stage of microarchitecture. In the TQ world, the Black has the technology of the Blue but a stage further in audio "microarchitecture" - a "tock". The Green incorporates the "microarchitecture" of the Black but in a new technology - a "tick". The Ultras have the technology of the Green plus a new "microarchitecture" - another "tock".

TQ do not disclose materials or structure, but I think of the Blue and Green as being "copper" sounding, and the Black and Ultra a "silver' sound, if "copper" is dark and tolerant; "silver" as bright and intolerant. In looks the Blue and Black are "thin", the Green and Ultra are "thick". So the Blue is "copper" and thin, the Black silver and thin, the Green copper and thick, the Ultra silver and thick.......(no relationship to real materials!) In practice I am just suggesting one's system may most suited to a "tick" (Blue and Green), or a "tock" (Black and Ultra) - it is not just a problem of price...

I see what you are saying the black is a good match for my system the blue + green would be like the timing on a car + or - one degree  :cheers:

RE: Tellurium Q black...

After returning my loan pair of Tellurium Q black and reverting back to my mission cables I picked up my new Tellurium Q black cables today  I connected them up and as soon as I started to listen I knew that it was money well spent  its as if a veil has been lifted  from my speakers I would recomend them to anybody as a cheap upgrade  money well spent :bounce: :bounce:

Great news, and nice to hear how you are going! And so pleased you are enjoying again the amazing quailties of the TQ Black.  They are very addictive! - incredibly transparent and revelatory given fine hardware, which you appear to have. I couldn't believe what they could do with some sounds, especially up high. I am sure you will find them unveil further as the days pass - as I have experienced with the more forgiving TQ Greens (which do not need so much settling-in as the Blacks or even more, the earlier version of the Greens). I added a TQ Black interconnect, which is a companion to the TQ Black and Green speaker cables.

Hi antskip I am listening right now and I don't think I could have got this much of an improvment if I had spent the same money on any other part of my system . I am going to let thing settle for a bit and then I am going to borrow some Tellurium xlr interconnects I have had a listen with my old Audiolab amp + a new mission pre amp dack + mission cd transport which sounded realy great but some thing was missing  :cheers:

RE: TQ black...

Afer using the Tellurim Q Black for about a month I noticed a big improvement in my system as well, the sound is spacious and detailed the bass

is great :soft and punchy . This cabels do need a running period before  can show what they realy capable to prefrom . they are so good that the Q Black immedietly reveal a weakeness in your system chain or  bad recordings or sources .
