Soo... I have TQ Black 2 on home dem.
My system is NacN 172XS, Nap 200, B&W pm1, Chord Shawline interconnect.
My previous speaker cable upgrade was DNM Reson to Naca5. The DNM was perfect for my previous system, but in the current one, the Naca5 is much better. Back then, I also had TQ Black on home dem along the Naca5, and although I liked some of what the TQ was doing, the Naca5 was the better match for me.
The TQ Black 2 I'm demoing only has a few hours on it, but imo it's much better than its previous incarnation. It has eliminated most of the harshness and sybilance I got from time to time with Naca5. It sounds so smooth, whilst being more open and detailed. Nice liquidy sound, and better texture across the band. I have a couple of questions, if anyone is using this:
1. Does it's length matter? (Soundwise, of course). I have a 2.5 meter pair ATM. My Naca5 is 3.5m, but just because I got a good deal on it, and my dealer recommended bigger length.
2. I still feel like the "attack" is not as good/strong/immediate as on the Naca5. Does it get better with burn-in? Or is this it's normal state and a consequence of it's smoothness? I'm talking mainly about the bass, the mid-range and highs are fantastic.
