Statement Power Cable
It was no easy task to develop a power cable with a similar
sonic signature and performance as the other Statement cables because each
cable has its own challenges to optimize performance but without doubt this has
Tellurium Q® is often asked what do we do
that makes our cables perform so well? The simple and unsatisfying answer is
that we do a lot of little things together that mount up to be very important
in terms of the final performance. People assume that to get the best performance
the “fastest” conductor – pure silver of something even better has to be used.
Which is also one of the reasons for the pointless chasing of nines as I call
it i.e. copper to 99.9999999% purity as if that is the single most important
factor for a cable!
Surprisingly, to get a more “natural” sound, it is not just
about merely conduction. This is the reason, any conductor from any cable
manufacturer on this planet will act as an electronic filter and by that I mean
that the various frequencies relative to one another get shifted with each
material they pass through and are also affected by insulators, geometries,
shielding etc.. The interesting thing is that materials affect ranges of
frequencies in dissimilar amounts. It really is a finely tuned balancing act.
This is the model that we use, a way of thinking about cable
development. In a Bell labs report from way back in 1930 they found that
transient phase distortion affected the “naturalness” of voices. Of course
there are many things that contribute to the fact that Statement cables are
winning so many awards and firsts. But this “naturalness” is one of the prime
factors that we listen for in the final production ready cable.
This testing process is more iterative than people would
imagine. Even down to the solder that we use. Not standard by any means for the
audio industry and we have tried numerous mixes and diverse percentages of
silver in the solder but at the end of our testing and development we find we
have a solder with no silver whatsoever (no lead either).
The connectors may look relatively ordinary but have
multiple layers of plating and not always the material you would expect. There
is even more detail and precision within the plating process itself, because we
specify the thickness of the plating and what has to be in the plating bath and
what should not be.
These are just a couple of tiny details that make up just
one small part of one cable. The detail, precision and care is the same for the
rest of the products. And each little step needs a controlled listening and
testing against other options which is immensely time consuming but hopefully
the results speak for themselves.
From what we have learnt, especially in the last few years,
we have been able to bring you the Statement cables. They are the Tellurium Q®
Statement of the performance that we think is currently possible.
We hope that you enjoy your system more with
your Statement cables.
