Ultra Black II XLR Cable

Like the Black XLR, just much better and using our Tellurium Copper connectors. For a richer more detailed sound.

Performance Profile
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.
Reviews and User Comments
HiFi & Music Source

“Having inaugurated an awards season for 2022, it seemed appropriate to acknowledge some key pieces of HiFi equipment that have passed through HF&MS over the preceding nine years. There have been just three ‘Night and Day’ moments over this period. These experiences are usually unexpected and simply tangible, where you just think; ‘blimey, this is really really good!

I was one of those who appreciated cables were important but I had no idea how profound the introduction of a medium to high-end cable could be and the Ultra Black II is by no means Tellurium Q’s best cable.”

– Simon Wilce, HiFi & Music Source

“The difference between them was pretty obvious [Ultra Black Vs Ultra Black II] helping all instruments and vocalists find their original voice.

Ultra Black II XLR as one system is the cable which gives a detailed deep feeling sound without creating an illusion…Ultra Black II is generally perceived not as a successor to the previous version but as a cable from a more high price category.

Things that for the same money help to jump into another level, are really rare.”

“As expected, the Ultra Black gave a compelling performance with great bass, punchy treble and good detail of position of each instrument. It was good, but nothing on the scale of the Ultra Black II.

This had control and depth with top ends clearer than from my resident cables. This was pure magic at work. ..This was as clean a sound as it gets.

For precision from lowest to highest frequencies and with all types of music these cables are a no brainer….. I could see exactly what Geoff was trying to do.”

“I cued up ‘Money’ from Dark Side of the Moonon the LP12 and played it, first with the Mark I and then with the Mark II between the pre and power. The difference was not trivial.

I have no idea what Geoff Merrigan and his team at Tellurium Q have done to these Mark II cables and he is not about share that information with anyone. What I can tell you is that what they bring to a system is addictive and irresistible.”

“Immediately on connecting them up I noticed how clear and detailed they sounded in comparison to my previous cables, complimenting the rest of the system very nicely indeed. My Audio Physic Avanti’s have exceptional imaging capabilities and with these cables in place I was given an even more three dimensional image. Integration from the very top the very lowest frequencies was seamless with a lovely open mid-range that benefited vocals and acoustic instruments. It’s the tiny details and intricacies that make the difference for me when I listen to recordings I think I know inside out and suddenly hear new things and here these details I certainly did with the Ultra Blacks in place.”

“I’ve just bought a set of your ultra black 2 xlr interconnect cables and your system disc .
First of I just cannot believe how your cable can make such a huge difference to my system, I’ve read all the hype and awards reviews and like a million people before me I was not expecting to hear what I heard after on a few seconds into the play mode , WOW it just blew me away and made my music come alive and almost holographic and i was using [********] top end cables before”
