Hi-Fi Room: Best cable award for Tellurium Q Statement

I have long been a fan of Tellurium Q , the addition of Black II speaker cable to a system is an easy step up in performance. Further up the performance scale Black and Silver Diamond interconnects, USB and speaker cables battle each other for a place in your set up....
