Blue Speaker Cable
Tellurium Blue is the entry level speaker cable that was designed to be the companion to Tellurium Q Black and has been described by one well known manufacturer of speakers as having “good mid, but softer sounding” than the Tellurium Black. While having great detail and phase control is less revealing of a system than the Black.
HiFi World has described the most noticeable qualities of this cable as being, “a welcome absence of muddle..” and, “a more neutral, focused, precise aura settled on the music. In fact the Blue cables exhibited a tremendous sense of control; something that I’ve never heard from any cable at this price point.”
Reviews and User Comments
“Indeed, the cables were like chalk and cheese. The new cable was astounding in comparison [to the old design] …..Blue II added more depth and space than I expected for such a cheap cable. These really are the bargain of the year.”

“…Tellurium Q Blue II is smooth, clear, soft, detailed, clean, natural, beautiful! I can say that the music is more beautiful than the first version. And it makes me unable to imagine Speaker cable at this price level who else could do it like Tellurium Q Blue II ?”

“I was and remain bowled over by both the improvements in performance of the Tellurium Q Blue II cables when compared to the original models and how the Blue IIs battle it out with their immediate competition… To do all of this at such a low price point is startling”

“If you compare it to other cables, even my previous ones, by a well-known American company, you can get the impression that other producers are combining how to stand out from the crowd, and Tellurium combines how to best give music back.”

“Excellent in a distinctive way…The Emeli Sandé track shows these cables to be more fluid and mellifluous”

“…a degree of coherence, timing and focus distinctly uncommon, in my experience, for this sort of money.”

“Its performance is rather remarkable, especially its openness and freedom from smear that bedevils most “starter” level cables. Its sound has has an outstanding clarity and focus, along with a fine transparency and, hence a very natural character on vocals .. Its inclusion in my office system has certainly brightened my working days. Allowing me to hear even more of the music that was previously struggling to reach the speakers”.

“So it is refreshing to happen upon a set of cables that can deliver the sonic goods, yet don’t cost as much as a small island.”

“When you are used to Silver Diamond and Statement it’s difficult to go back to Blue, but I did it last weekend. Installed the Blue and reproduced the cut number 3 from Tellurium Q CD. Then played Take Five, You Look Good to me (Oscar Peterson Trio) and “Ah! mes amis, quel jour de fête!” from Juan Diego Flores Ultimate Collection. This was repeated with Blue II and EVERYTHING was clearly better. I wasn’t surprised as already experienced this with Silver to Silver II, but this doesn’t mean that the improvement wasn’t surprising… It’s just that Tellurium Q users are getting accustomed to this kind of performance. An incredible QCR!”

“I just thought I’d tell you about my experience with the Tellurium Q Blue speaker cables which my local distributor, Croak Audio, very kindly lent me. I am currently using Straightwire Symphony between my Monitor Audio S6 and Unison Research Unico amp. The sound can best be described as ultra smooth and laid back, lacking in detail and life, in other words quite boring to listen to. I also tried a pair of Cardas Crosslink cables and although an improvement over the Straightwire, still too laid back and reticent in the upper octaves. Next up was the TQ and immediately everything opened up. I could hear more detail, the sound somehow came to life and everything now seemed so much more coherent and clear. From top to bottom a more cohesive and coherent sound. An outstanding cable at a very reasonable price, even in South Africa, where we normally pay a premium price for everything that is imported. Needless to say I immediately ordered a pair from my dealer.”

Blue Family Warm and forgiving for systems with a slight edge or for those who like a more smooth laid back presentation. Blue and Ultra Blue are especially good for AV and home cinema
Black Family Smooth, fine detailed and great resolution while actually reducing apparent harshness. Music is presented as a coherent, organic whole, with a jaw-dropping sense of realism and naturalness.
Silver Family Totally uncoloured, acting as a wide open channel sounding unforced, vivid and dynamic with phenomenal resolution, transparency and natural tonal colours. All this while sounding extremely analog and coherent, from the exceptional top end extension to bottom with finely detailed, separated bass notes.
