I am not that familiar with Tellurium Q cables and after Willy passed these cables to me, I had to surf to the company’s website www.telluriumq.com to read up on its design philosophy and products.
The website stated: “When Tellurium Q was set up the focus was primarily on phase distortion and minimising this problem inherent in all cabling, whoever makes them and where ever and however they are made. The reason it is a problem is simple, all materials (not just cables) in the path of a signal will act as an electronic filter according to the definition in the box below, whether you want it to or not. This is undeniable.

“Please understand we use the word filter as its scientific definition and not necessarily as something being ‘filtered out’ like with a mechanical sieve. We are primarily focussed on removing the smearing of frequencies through a timing shift and by doing this you get better clarity and transparency from Tellurium Q cables.”

So has Tellurium Q succeeded in its design goals?

Introduction: exD DAC

I analyse the sound further, while very analogue sounding, it was just too noise free to have come from an LP playback system. I asked Gunther to confirm which source am I listening to? He replied, the laptop! There and then I knew I had to get to know the digital conversion better, which led me to have a cuppa with the exD DAC designer from Hong Kong, Albert.

I had a shock when I surfed to the Absolute Sound website a few minutes ago and read the following:

 

“The high-end audio community suffered a tragic and unexpected loss on August 15, when Dieter Burmester passed away in Berlin after a short but severe illness. The loss was tragic because Burmester, who founded and led his namesake company until his death, was both a pioneer and a hi-fi industry visionary. “

It was a neck and neck fight between AV Designs and Hifi Creations.

There I was walking on the top floor of Amcorp Mall on Saturday where few audiophiles venture to – since most of the hi-fi shops are on the first floor – when I saw a shop called Wave.
For some reason or other, I decided to walk into the shop. It had Bluetooth speakers and soundbars on discount. I walked a few more steps into the shop and – lo and behold – I spotted a Mytek DAC connected to a pair of ADAM active speakers.
What’s going on here? What is the highly-praised audiophile-quality Mytek DAC doing among all the Bluetooth speakers?

A new concept store has opened its doors to Malaysian hi-fi folks, specifically those who love vinyl, tubes & horns! O’Lagenda, Our Stance Kafe is the brainchild of Thomas Lim, a former Malaysian super hi-end club member back in the 1980-90s. He left the scene for another one of his love, coffee (the 3-in-1 kind to be exact!) You see, Thomas has since spent the last 2 decades peddling 3-in-1 coffee mix in China. He was so successful that he is called “3-in-1 cafe king” in China.

Samsung, one of the founding member of the Ultra High Definition Alliance has, in one fell stroke, taken UHDTV performance to a significantly new level and in the process raised the ante for other manufacturers of high performance, high end digital displays.
