Ultra Blue Speaker Cable
Building on the strengths of the award wining Blue cable and going much further. This cable has been developed with home cinema, custom installation and good hifi performance in mind. If you like a full, rich, clear sound then you need to listen to your system with the Ultra Blue. In terms of performance the Ultra Blue sits assuredly between the entry level award wining Blue and the multi award wining Black cables.
Reviews and User Comments
“The mids and treble also felt richer here. The amount of new detail though was the most significant aspect of their presentation. The guitar strums added new detail. Again, there was a rich depth here. An insight to the resonance created by the guitar body. A sense that this instrument was more than a set of strings, there was wood and metal around them.
They not only give you a solid sonic upgrade from sub-£100 cables but they perform wonderfully in its own price point and show the original Ultra Blue I model a clean pair of heels, for example.”

“The soundstage has great depth, but appears wider with the Ultra Blue II…Overall, the top end of the Ultra Blue II is more elegant and the bass punchier.”

“The sound quality of Tellurium Q Ultra Blue II has stepped up to the next level clearly….. In terms of every detail, sound is natural. Tellurium Q Ultra Blue II provides high-end sound at affordable price.”
– Wijit Boonchoo, The Wave Online
“…through experience, also know that TQ cables have a habit of exceeding expectations….along with a noticeably wider soundstage than the first edition Ultra Blue, instrumental placement within the soundstage – especially front-to-back – was better defined with the new cable.
…putting the new against the old, it’s clear that there’s a definite refinement in dynamics and instrumental coherence. This makes the Ultra Blue II a serious upgrade that delivers excellent performance at its price point.”
– Jay Garrett, Stereonet.co.uk
“As you suggested, having now bedded the cables in over the weekend any harshness has now gone (even on not so good pressings). I know 60 year old ears are past their optimum but I do know when things are a little off.
So my feedback on these cables are that they are very good and certainly an upgrade on my previous cables. There certainly is a smoothness to them but they also reveal a lot of detail that I wasn’t hearing before. Would I recommend them? Unequivocally yes. They match very well in my system which may not be high-end (Pink Triangle record deck , Graham slee phono stage , Audiolab amplification and Dali speakers) but it provides the neutrality that I enjoy.”
– Ian Carr, UK
“The hope with a version 2 of any product is that it will be an improvement, an evolution from the previous version.
The Ultra Blue II is certainly such an improvement, in fact it is a huge step up in audio quality. Switching between the two generations in my system with the Ultra Blue II everything just sounds immediately better… more coherent, lower frequencies are more extended and defined, stereo image wide and more engaging. The previous version was excellent, but this is a serious upgrade and amazing performance at this price point.”

Blue Family Warm and forgiving for systems with a slight edge or for those who like a more smooth laid back presentation. Blue and Ultra Blue are especially good for AV and home cinema
Black Family Smooth, fine detailed and great resolution while actually reducing apparent harshness. Music is presented as a coherent, organic whole, with a jaw-dropping sense of realism and naturalness.
Silver Family Totally uncoloured, acting as a wide open channel sounding unforced, vivid and dynamic with phenomenal resolution, transparency and natural tonal colours. All this while sounding extremely analog and coherent, from the exceptional top end extension to bottom with finely detailed, separated bass notes.
