“Upon inserting the Silver Diamond hf RCA/BNC digital cable the answer became immediately obvious: a resounding yes. Just when I thought the limits were reached – the Silver Diamond went further! In particular the extension at the extremes was even better and the openness of the midrange spectrum helped to cast an even more believable sonic picture. The vocals were sensationally immediate and alive sounding; the human touch was highly authentic. The bass spectrum gained in punch and control and the instruments had even more body and thus seemed even more realistic. The uppermost octaves seemed even more open and limitless in their extension with the Silver Diamond and this in turn gave even more airy presentation of various recording venues.”
Note: All Tellurium Q Digital RCA cables can be terminated with RCA or BNC connectors.
“After about five albums worth of extremely enjoyable listening I removed the Black Diamond from between my Lyngdorf CD2 transport and Lyngdorf TDAI3400 amplifier/DAC and installed the Silver Diamond. From the first moments of listening to One of These Days from Pink Floyd’s Meddle, I was absolutely astonished. The Silver Diamond took my immersion into the music that I know so well to another level completely. This was not a subtle change, a nuanced difference. This was like stepping from the audience onto the recording studio floor.
Of course you may find that one of the less expensive Tellurium Q options is more than adequate (and I can confirm that all the ones I have now heard are admirable performers), in which case buy that and spend the difference on music. On the other hand, you might just find that the £1,200 asking price for the Silver Diamond is in actual fact a bargain, as it takes your musical delight to levels which you thought were beyond your system’s reach, and will be a lot less expensive that changing major components.”

“The overall resolution and detail was mind blowing and most impressive is just how natural the vocals are as part of a wide open sound stage with depth and width to spare. See the two system demonstration videos below for examples of this.”
“Firstly was the reduction in noise. That reduction removed the irritating, distortive effects that make the ear cringe and withdraw.
Next was the concurrent smoothness from the mids, especially the upper midrange.
Thirdly, was the bass. My goodness the lower frequencies added power to burn. Not so much in terms of punch just a hefty weight, a real force of nature.
The transient attack from the guitar plucks displayed an impressive focus and precision while the instrumental separation, enhanced by the low noise, allowed the ear to pick up secondary rhythms that occurred way off into the rear of the mix.”
“SD is a generation ahead in terms of its capabilities, principally because of the vast amount of noise it removes from the soundstage and the clarity that it brings as a consequence.
The Tellurium Q Silver Diamond RCA is one of the all time great digital cables that, if you can afford, you really must own. Once you’ve heard this design provide its amazing sense of realism, then any other digital connection tends to pale into insignificance. Brilliantly transparent, the Silver Diamond is likely to dominate the digital cable hill for many years to come.
“Silver Diamond is extraordinarily transparent, satisfyingly open, full-bodied, with an awesome bass, and extremely sweet and smooth across the midrange.”
