Tellurium Q Silver Diamond Digital Audio AES EBU Cable
The Silver Diamond XLR sits right at the top of all TQ's families of sound in terms of performance. Highly detailed, incredible range and above all natural. Once you hear a Silver Diamond XLR you will find it difficult to go back.
Just like all TQ's cables, the Digital XLR cables are hand built in Britain for performance. Some think that the idea that improving the signal path for digital signals is a waste of time. However a digital signal is not a 1 or 0 as is often thought but an analogue pulse and so the same care and consideration has to be taken with the construction of a digital cable as with a pure analogue cable. The 1 or 0 is result of the signal being “read” and that is the binary piece of information not the electronic signal in the wire. That is the way TQ think of it and why they build the cables the way that they do.
Here is a simple and non-technical way to view a digital signal in a wire and while not what happens it is a more accurate model than a one or zero. A single electron is not enough to trigger a response from audio equipment. So you need to think about the signal as a “swarm” of electrons almost with a shape. To turn a signal on or off requires a small amount of time and a magnitude of the “swarm” is necessary, the shape of which is affected by many factors and which in turn affects leading and trailing edges as they are read. However as specified, while a little closer to the truth this is still not what actually happens.
