They are a very light speaker cable and are therefore very well suited to use with book shelf speakers sitting on top of stands. All these often-forgotten factors coupled with the overall sound quality at their price point are reason aforementioned cables to be awarded Best Analogue Cable of 2018. They are a great introduction to what Tellurium Q are all about and if you like what these do, you will love what the other cables do higher up in the range.
