Most music follows a form that can be calculated with a fourier transform analysis and time frequency analysis indicating it is not random, which simply means that your system can get into a “rut”. Like going to a gym and training only a few specific muscles for years and then wondering why your body is out of balance. This recording takes your system through a full workout of frequencies and tonal changes that is specifically designed to stretch your system’s components and bring new life into your music.
We place equal importance on all frequencies and even go into deep bass in a way that sub woofers will benefit from while working up through mids into the upper high frequency ranges in a non-sequential , non- Fourier way. There are also no pure ratio intervals to allow your system to slouch while it is having its work out. This is also one of the prime reasons that music played normally is slow to burn in components compared to this tool. Music does not cover your system’s range in a way that exercises the components sufficiently in a mechanical, electronic and magnetic sense to burn in your various components as efficiently.
A quick check that your cables are working and installed correctly and a pre check of your speaker drivers.
Track two: 60:00
The main burn in track, while you can play the whole recording in a loop repeatedly this is the main burn in track for new components in your system.
Track Three: 10:00
A rapid yoga session for your system to wake it up and inject a little life in to your music.Try it and hear for yourself.

“I’ve had my system for 7 years so I didn’t have to use the burn-in track, I ran track 3 and, honestly, I couldn’t believe the difference in the quality of sound, it’s almost 24 hours since I ran the disc and I am still blown away when I think of the difference the disc has made. I don’t think I’ll ever spend a more rewarding £20”
– John Smith, Scotland
“Thank You Thank You Thank You!!!! The System Disk is Amazing!!!!
Okay, I’ll start with, uhh yes actually I was very surprised!!
I use 4 Subwoofers, and because I do I have them all turned way down. Because I hate Boomy Bass!!! I want it to be tight and fast!!!
Well, I notice that the bass extended deeper and was a little heavier so I had to recalibrate them.
As for the rest of the music it was more immediate, open!! The edges were more defined.
Oh!!!! And the presentation enlarged. Almost as though the volume was turned up!!!
I ran the disc through twice and then listened to at night. As I states earlier my system is highly revealing. And I have built it over the past 8 years!!! So I know how it sounds when any changes are implemented. “
– George Weathington, USA
“Tellurium Q System Disc is, by far, the cheapest and most impressive tweak I’ve ever used/sold!!! That’s why I was so surprised it could have been improved!!!”
– Francisco Moya, Distributor, Spain.
“…CD arrived safely. I’ve already run it through my system and I’m amazed by the results, it’s definitely put the sparkle back in it.”
– Martin Kemp, Melbourne, Australia
“Your burn in cd seems to work wonders, have had it on repeat all day at very low volume to burn in my new simaudio dac. I got the Moon Neo 280D dac from Simaudio, their products are know for slow burn in. Just after a workday of track 2 on repeat it starts to sound more like (burnt in demo ex ofc) it did in the store, softer, more “analog”, more comfortable.”
– Rick Ursberg
“The system sounds a lot brighter then before. It had been playing for about 3 weeks before I used the disc. The cymbals of the drumsets are, how can i say, more accurate, more lifelike. As are the guitars i hear at the moment. Spoken voices sound a bit harsh to me sometime, but that could also be the Bronze 2 itself of course.”
– Joop, Netherlands
“An obvious difference after playing the disc . A Tonic for the system!”
– Ashis Banerjee, India
“The system CD is an absolute revelation. Thank you very much for the personal and rapid response. Thought I knew the bends [Radiohead] cd, have to reassess this”
– John Rowell, UK via Facebook
“Just ran the 10 min refresh track on my system. Reference track, ‘moon and moon’ sounds far better after the track three warm up. Like it was only playing a restricted set of frequencies before and now it’s wide open. Lovely! It occurs to me that using the Tellurium Q system disc is absolutely essential before any kind of critical listening. Your system gets locked into to playing certain pockets of frequencies depending on what material you’ve been playing, so it would make sense to open it up and recalibrate if you want to hear what’s really going on.”
– Simon Lomax, Co-developer Tellurium Q System Disc
“Gave my system the ‘work out’ with the enhancement cd last night. I quite enjoyed having the house rumbling away for an hour or so, especially the buzzing of shelves and rattling bottles in the kitchen! I thought it sounded like Brian Eno boogieing down with Karlheinz Stockhausen and Gyorgy Ligeti in a Breaking Bad meth lab. And was that The Chemical Bros. guesting on the last track? 🙂
Seriously though, I settled down to listen afterwards and you could have knocked me down with a feather. First impression was of a recessed soundstage with greater than usual depth. I always interpret this as being a result of better resolution of reverb information and thus clearer clues to spatial image. The bonus of a recessed soundstage being that one can raise the volume somewhat and the whole thing just gets bigger!!
A good start then. Then there were the vocals: more immediacy, focus, nuance and delicacy. Moments when the singer stops and yet was palpably still there just pausing before singing the next phrase. I never had that before. And so it went on with enhancements to every aspect of the music and I spent a long evening glued to my seat 🙂
What can I say, a delightful surprise. Now TQ cables are widely appreciated and I find myself wondering why you don’t provide the cd when people buy a set of your cables and then they would be even more impressed?
It will be interesting to see how often I feel the need to give the stereo another fix of the refresh track. “Please doctor, I can give up smoking but don’t take away my TQ enhancement cd!”
Is there a 24/96 or even 192 version available? 🙂 Plans for a vinyl? Ho ho.
So far everything I have heard from TQ has turned out to be a delight. You guys seem to have an understanding of cables and electronics that must leave many other engineers very frustrated.
I can see myself ending up with a set of Black Diamond everything…
Long live TQ.”

“I would like to share with you my impressions about the Tellurium Graphite Digital RCA. I expected the typical not breaking in cable sound: harsh and analytic. But it was worse!! In addition to this, the cable didn’t had highs nor lows… It sounded like a rigid wire.
At this point I doubt seriously if it would be a good cable!!!
A little latter is when I discovered the Tellurium Q System Enhancement CD… it’s a CD about 70 minutes of playing time that comes in 3 cuts…. And at the end I saw the light!
It’s a break-in and system enhancement CD that plays a signal that signal that cover the whole hearing spectrum.
Oh my God!!! How good this cable sounds!!!
It has moved from earth to heaven… it delivers all the sound that your CD transport can offer… it’s quick, it’s firm, clean and has brutal dynamics!!!
It respect the highest and lowest frequencies… but it doesn’t widen nor reduce them… with a Divine entirety in the bass and a prodigious musicality in the highs.
Paco… you were right. I am very proud of this cable!!! And even more bearing in mind that it costs less than 1000€… everything it delivers and in the way it does it, it’s a very cheap cable!!!!”
-Mario Diaz, Spain
“Many thanks for the CD, after reading Tony Boltons review in Hi-Fi World i just had to have a copy.
My set up is a Moon Supa Nova CD player with a Moon 600I amp fed by an Isotek Aquarius evo 3 mains filter into a pair of Totem Hawk loudspeakers with a pair of Audiosmiles bespoke supertweeters. And to my ears already sounded very good, but the difference the Tellurium CD makes is quite astonishing, more detail greater note and instrument separation ,brighter cleaner and fresher sounding with just a hint of sweetness.
Overall it is a very good instant system upgrade and all for £20, remarkable !
Every time i sit down for a good listening session the effects are instantly and clearly obvious.
many many thanks.”

“This is just to let you know that I finally got the CD yesterday. I must say that after playing the whole CD just once, my entire system (not only Ultra Blacks) has improved dramatically. Your product is absolutely brilliant. (By the way, I used burn-in CDs by two well-known British companies for extended periods of time, but they are nowhere near as good.)”
– Jerzy from Poland
“I have been using the new CD and it is incredible for speeding-up the burn-in process – of not only cables.”
– Gerardo Ventura, Audio Azimuth, Italy
After playing one track with the same volume before and after playing the Track Three on the Tellurium Q short system wake up the music comes out more vivid, more open and more room than it was before. It’s a big difference before and after and definitely the easiest way to enhance your system of playing or reproducing music on your system and by the way the most cost effective way of enhancing your system”.
– Arnd Rischmüller, Hamburg, Germany
“This gave me the opportunity to familiarize myself with Tellurium Q’s burn-in CD, which delivers a kind of intelligent “fitness programme” for each and every frequency range in an unusual sequence. Does it work? You Betcha!”
– Christian Bayer, Image HiFi.com
“And I promise you, you definitely think you got your ears cleaned when you come back. And the CD also works wonders in a computer system. It seems as just every component in the HiFi system favours of this exercise. The sound is absolutely more open and flows just more easy all the way from the source to the speakers. Weird, but true. And as the “Cable and System Preparation / Refresh” CD is just ideal for burning in cables, we really, really recommend you to spend the 20 English Pounds extra while shopping for cables.”
– Mono & Stereo
“We tried naturally Tellurium Q’s CD , which should do wonders for all kit, as we were informed. And there was definitely a difference to hear the BEFORE and AFTER this CD, not only in our test facility, but also in several friends’ hifi systems. So order or download this “album” and give your plants some much needed exercise. It may be the best 200 kr. That you have given out for a long time.”
– Kurt Lassen
“When I first got this CD I thought, yep, here’s another gimmick, but I was very wrong. I have tried lots of test discs, and where many might tempt you with gimmicks, this one is just plain honest.
This CD is like a double-strength medicine, curing the audio ailments quicker than others I have used in the past, and much less gimmicky. It also plays nice music.”
– Janine Elliot
“the final effect was as obvious as cleaning the car windows after a particularly muddy journey. All aspects of the sound seemed clearer, with better focus on small details, such as the decay of a high-hat, and the presentation of the sound was more vivid and effortless”
– Tony Bolton, Hifi World 2015
“I have tried a few of these discs, but never has one made my system and others sound like a component upgrade has occurred. Immediately the dynamics and instrumental timbre of the music are greatly improved. A split second after that you realise that your system’s staging stability has never been, well, so stable. The vocal is rock solid central and the rest of the instruments spread out behind them, creating a tangible 3D stage of musicians. Keep up the good work!”
– Dominic Lye, Manager, Studio AV, UK
