Tellurium Q Black II RCA Review by Chris Kelly
Tellurium Q BLack II RCA:
Regular readers of The Ear will know that I have over that last few years been able to review a number of cables from the Tellurium Q catalogue, and that I have never failed to enjoy them. I have met Geoff Merrigan, the chief designer for Tellurium Q several times and have been lucky enough to have been able to visit his development and listening facility in Langport, Somerset. I have access to several different manufacturers’ cables but I always find myself go- ing back to Tellurium Q, simply because I enjoy listening to my system with them in place.
In order to make sure that the playing field was as level as I could make it I ran both pairs of the interconnects in my system for several days, to make sure that they were at least a bit ‘run in’.
My preferred source is a Gold Note PH10 phono stage, attached to my Linn Sondek LP12, on whose Ittok arm is fixed a Dynavector XX2 cartridge. It seemed sensible therefore to use that for the listening tests. Tellurium Q always Mk their cables for directionality, and I was careful to make sure that the signal flowed in the marked direction. (I think my social media friend would at this point be approaching an apoplectic meltdown, but so be it). The rest of the system used was my Lyngdorf TDAI3400 amplifier connected to Harbeth C7ES3XD speakers with Tellurium Q Ultra Black II speaker cable.
