Ultra Black II
Even taking in account all the awards that the old Ultra Black speaker cable won, this new version gives a whole new level of performance that is obvious from the first second of listening. Greater detail, more clarity, more organic but still sitting very firmly in the Black cable family.
The first few people to have heard the new cable were surprised to say the least.
Old Ultra Black
“Tellurium Q Ultra Black is the cable we wanted to make from day one. We told our UK distributor what to expect as we handed them a prototype that looked more like a fireman’s hose and less like a sonic phenomena. They glanced at the heavy, stiff and it has to be said ugly brown experiment. “Yes, well we will give it a go and take it to a few dealers to see what they think”. Later that day we get a phone call from our disbelieving UK distributors at Kog Audio, “what the hell is in it? We’ve never heard anything like this!”.
They took it on trust that the production version would be incredibly thin and flexible by comparison and look a whole lot better. So Kog Audio put in an advance order that day without needing to see or hear the production model because, in their words, “if it is even quarter as good as the prototype it will blow people away”.
We think that the production version sounds better than the prototype.
At first glance you could be forgiven for thinking that the Blue Diamond and Ultra Black were the same cable with different printing but when you plug the Ultra Black into your system there is absolutely no doubt that the Ultra Black is in a totally different league.”
All cables from any manufacturer (in fact anything an electronic signal passes through), will act as an electronic filter which just means that relative phase distortion occurs i.e. a smearing of the natural sound. With this in mind, we have designed cables to be either slightly tailored towards an audiophiles requirement to help with their system or highly neutral and revealing. This has given rise to a 3X3 “matrix” to allow you to pick the level of performance and the sonic quality of your cables with a greater degree of confidence, and accuracy of choice than ever before. It is an unusual approach, but one that audiophiles globally are beginning to really appreciate, and one of the major reasons that Tellurium Q have won so many product of the year awards in such a short time.
