    Default Tellurium Q Blue Speaker Cable

    These are the most affordable in the range. Never heard them. Just wondering have some members here tried the Blue? If so, any good?

    It's pretty decent, I prefer it to the Black and Black2, although the Silver is more to my taste.

    The Blue is quite bold and reasonably detailed, a bit smoothed over, it's a musical cable imo - i.e. it sounds like real music is being made. The Blacks are more obviously 'hifi' and I got a bit irritated by them quite quickly. The Blacks sound somehow 'wrong' to me.
    If you can get the Blue used it's a bit of a bargain imo.

    I use blue in my 2 channel av/hifi system- agree with Jerry lovely warm cable very music orientated less so hi-fi.

    My son has black in his set up, I find it very good unlike Jerry.

    All Colin Wonfors cables are pretty special.

    Had Blue, loved it, so I assumed that Black would be better, donít think it was, however, bought another set of Blue, having moved on the first lot, and somehow it didnít sound as good as the initial batch, ended up keeping the Black, but, Iíd thoroughly recommend the Blue.

    If youíre still of an open mind, try some Van Damme Hifi speaker cable, Iím currently using the 4mm variation.

    Have 3m of blue in my spares box, very nice but bit flat sounding, tried black, like turning on a loudness button. In end used dnm.

    I have a pair of Ultra Blue here and they are perkier than the original Blue. Didn't like the Black but I'm blowed if I know what exactly I didn't like about them. Now the Ultra Blacks really got my juices flowing which soon dried up when I saw the price.

    I’ve used the TQ Blue before and found it to be very good indeed... Never heard the black.

    However, to throw a very cheap spanner in the works, the Van Damme blue cable is bloody brilliant IMO, worth trying if you’ve not done so already

    The Van Damme Blue comes in different thickness. Are yours the 2.5mm ones?

    I’ve used the 2.5, 4 and 6mm, currently using the 6mm that I bought off here last week, it’s solid stuff and not expensive at all. Some good plugs in it and away you go... It’s been a revelation to me, having used Chord, QED and TQ Blue in the past, I wouldn’t spend more now personally
