Statement II Speaker Cable

As with all our cable series developments, the speaker cable is the cable we develop first. The Silver Diamond cables were something of a surprise to those that heard them and we were even surprised at exactly what they could do. So deciding to try to better them was no small undertaking. While reviewers were incredibly impressed with the Silver Diamonds we wondered if there was anything else we could bring to the performance to improve on them. What we ended up doing is starting from the ground up again, looking at each step in more minute detail and tweaking each and every iteration to optimise performance and optimise we did.

The Statement speaker cable not only surpassed the Silver Diamond but did so spectacularly, once again blowing our expectations clean out of the water. As you can clearly see from the reviews below where reviewers had previously experienced the Silver Diamonds then came face to face with the Statements.

What you have with the new Statements is a reviewer’s nightmare, how to describe them without repeating words that will be mistaken for something that you may have heard before.

“Well they certainly transcend any typical labelling”

Reviews and user comments

“… it also means that my cables have been blocking the sound and distorting the stage, whether I knew it or not. When the Tellurium Q Statement II cable was inserted, the stage became much more open and it felt more like listening at the scene…. but what is clear is that I have now decided to ‘break up’ with existing cables, especially speaker cables. We recommend serious listening to enthusiasts.”

Some more snippets from the review:

“Another unexpected result is that the resolution has increased as if the source device has been changed. …

This time, by adding an additional Statement II XLR interconnect cable the particles become softer and the front and back layers of the instruments unfold three-dimensionally. Most changes related to the stage were captured, but vocal overtones and studio reverberations were observed more clearly. The expression “hearing a sound that you couldn’t hear” is used in situations like this….

When I revert back to my [own] speaker cable and XLR interconnect, the particles become relatively coarse and the stage becomes flat…

There is not a single corner that is glossed over. It is truly a world of 4K UHD HDR, with no color bleeding. It seems like the music source has been completely changed.

…when the Statement II speaker cable was inserted, the scale of the orchestra grew at once. The texture of the organ also becomes more vivid. In the highlight section around 1 minute and 12 seconds, all the notes of the orchestra rush in like a tidal wave. These are notes that have been pressed down very tightly. The organ in the background looks like a huge rock wall. The scale, majesty, authority, force, and the impression of the song itself have changed.”

“It is even possible that this is the most absent-in-the-path speaker cable I have ever encountered.

The British interconnect introduces practically no modifications in terms of tonal balance or sound timbre, and its presence in the system is revealed only by such aspects as microdynamics, transparency, speed and – once again – a wonderful, three-dimensional, perfectly organized space in which each source is clearly defined, has sharp shapes and is, one might say, firmly anchored in its place. In my opinion, the neutrality and stereophony of the Tellurium Q flagships are beyond question.

The cables somehow magically interact with each other, enhancing each other’s best features and improving the sound quality much more efficiently than when we check them separately.

And this is what makes Statement II the perfect, dream, and destination cable for many audiophiles. This is a dream come true and soothes the senses for those who are looking only for the truth about music, and for whom all other high-end cables were “too bad” – bringing many benefits, at the same time, they interfered too much with the sound. In other words, the search is over, at least when it comes to cabling.

If you have a suitably advanced system and you have changed cables many times, each time gaining something and losing something else, and at some point you started to wonder how such a set would sound with cables that are not there, which are inaudible, completely transparent, the solution to this puzzle is it’s waiting right here.”

“Tellurium Q cables have found their way onto the market and into the homes of some of the world’s most discerning customers for several reasons. First and foremost, they take music to realms that were not possible at their price point.

The Statement II version has a subliminal potency that punctures deeper into the realms of music, unfolding new details and bringing everything down to an impressive level of quietness and transparency. Added to this is a newfound dynamic scope that allows the music to unfurl with greater dynamism from the quietest passages to the thundering crescendos. The Tellurium Q Statement MK2 delivers a level of micro- and macro-dynamics that far exceeds what I expected for this upgrade.

There’s currently no shortage of high-quality, high-performance audio cables, and Tellurium Q delivers one of the most enticing options in terms of performance and price with the new, updated MK2 versions of the Statement cable line.”

“But this highlights the great difference about Tellurium Q Statement II; when you put it up against other cables – including its predecessor – the other cables sound like they are imposing their own characteristics on the sound.

Tellurium Q Statement was a revelation prising open the sound of your music in a way you might not have thought possible before. And if you liked what Statement did, Statement II does it better.

The revealing quality of the cable doesn’t come with a harsh edge. It shows what your system does, but it doesn’t push you to change that system.

If you have Statement, should you buy Statement II. Normally, this is time for some fence sitting, but here it’s an emphatic ‘yes’!”

“I then compared the Statement and Statement II speaker cables and interestingly the difference between them was very similar to the balanced cable’s difference, so similar in fact I would just be writing almost the same words and that makes no sense. The main significant extra difference I noticed was in the treble clarity and refinement being noticeably clearer, more energetic and livelier and better resolved from the Statement original speaker cables.”

“The Statement speaker cable is also neutral, with a wide gamut of timbre, and at the same time it has this “analogue flavour” which makes it feel very natural… this “fullness” is close to one-to-one. For example, the strings of a violin have a certain diameter… it still sounds like real violin strings not cello strings, the size of the cavity is the same, there is no distortion….even every detail has a certain weight, clarity and easy reception without losing dexterity and speed.

The Statement [II] speaker cable still has these features but everything has been improved [compared to the old version of Statement] especially in terms of natural sense, density, and analytical power and the texture, dynamic contrast, sound reality etc are all comprehensive better than the previous generation”

“There is still that sense of naturalness to the sound as with the Statement 1s, but even more so in some way…can something be “more natural”, I don’t know and perhaps my choice of words is not correct. Perhaps a better way of describing the sound is from a sensory/reactionary aspect and what I would say is that the Statement 2s allow you to fall into the musical performance more easily and more rapidly than with the 1s. There’s a sound at 1 minute 37 seconds on I’m Always Touched By Presence that was much more apparent with the 2s than it was with the 1s.

The handful of words I would use to describe the Statement 2 cables from Tellurium Q is more detailed than the originals but without that detail being pushed down your throat, but with the same speed and sense of rightness..”

“I never thought I would ever hear cables superior to the original Statement cables from Tellurium Q but hey, here they are, lying on my floor. The Statement IIs move onwards from the originals but they do so in a progressive manner. They don’t just tweak or nudge the sound quality on by a degree or two, the improvements are noteworthy enough to warrant that Mk.II label. The extra focus and clarity, the improved midrange insight, the enhanced bass power and more.

It’s as if the Statements offer a wider data path to allow more information to be transferred. It’s like most HiFi cabling is 32bit but the Statements are 64bit.”

“Geoff’s cables should be placed in the category of top-high-end, because the sets that can compete with them can be counted on the fingers of one hand.

I can say without hesitation that this is one of the absolutely best sets of audio cables that I have had the opportunity to host. Tellurium Q Statement impresses with their amazing resolution, transparency and clarity of sound. They provide excellent coherence combining very low, powerful, well-differentiated and perfectly controlled bass, with a colourful, smooth, detailed midrange and a beautifully illuminated, precise, open treble.”

“…you will also appreciate its dynamics. It is a rich, internally high-quality sound that requires familiarity with live music and high quality systems. Silver Diamond is a great cable, but Statement is much better in every respect. Together, however, they give something more, which will appeal to any kind of music, They give fullness, energy and richness of emotions.”

“Tellurium Q Statement cables managed to forge extreme transparency with the unprecedented organic flow…
With any high-end audio cable, one can be too quickly trickled into the phenomena of an initial emotional impression impact. This is still sadly associated with too many high-end audio cables on the market. In reality, this tricky-exuberant effect starts to echo off almost as instantly as it was introduced in the first place. Tellurium Q Statements differs by far in this regard. There is no after effect, no aural morphing, no big waving of emotional impressions. Just a steadily verisimilitude!

Tellurium Q Statements deliver the authority, sonic VR alike holographic nature, captivating relief soundstage structure, pinpointed three-dimensionality and finely micro/macro dynamics.

All that in the absence of the sonic smear, subtle distortion and with the high definition amount of acoustical focus points!? Yes Tellurium Q Statements truly deliver an extreme resolution without introducing the clinical and analytical momentum too often associated even with the most exotic top tiers…

Their stand out, extraordinary performance are more than worthy of the 2019 Editor Choice Award!”

“Cables that make a difference…and how!”

“We are in front of a range of absolutely thrilling cables that, although not within reach of everybody, are far from the exorbitant prices that you can find in the High End audio universe, and show a sweeping sonic personality that puts them in place to revitalise absolute reference systems.

The Statement Loudspeaker cable, dazzled us by the almost surgical presentation of the sound scene, with simply amazing depth.”

Even more surprising are the line interconnect cables, that with particularly demanding recordings, impress by the degree of cleanliness” of voices and instruments.”

“I also love the dynamics that Statement delivers, even compared to similar beefy cables…..This is a telling piece and not an easy one to deliver in a domestic setting but with this cable it became realistic and totally compelling. At the other end of the scale, the quieter end, this cable is exceptionally good at pulling out the details that make a singer or instrument palpably real.

I could rave on about this extraordinary cable but realise that at this price you won’t believe me: the only way to find out is to listen for yourself. But beware; once you hear what Tellurium Q is capable of you won’t forget the experience in a hurry. You have been warned!”

“Tellurium Q Statements are no usual cable affair and if I’ve called the Silver Diamonds an Emotional Tour de Force what are then the Tellurium Q Statements!? Well, they certainly transcend any typical labeling and this time I’m elevating them on the throne, that they clearly deserve. Their stand out, extraordinary performance can only be recognized with the 2018 Editor Choice Award!”

“To sum up let me add that the Tellurium Q Statement cables are a class of their own, a worthy partner of top audio systems, especially those in which we want to saturate the sound without losing any of the other features of the highest quality sound. Their important advantage is universality; they fit almost any system in which they harmoniously combine analytics with musicality, the power of dynamics with the subtlety of subtle reverberations. I know that they cost a lot, but I also know that it is worth spending time on them.”
