Ultra Blue II Speaker Cable

Very little needs saying about the Ultra Blue II speaker cable, the previous version won HiFi Pig outstanding product and Tone Audio exceptional value awards. Ultra Blue II is better, significantly, audibly better… and costs the same as the original version.

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
Stereo Life

“So what the manufacturer described has worked well – now we get better cables for the same money. How can you argue with this? These days, such things don’t happen often. Rather, the tendency is that you have to pay more and more for worse and worse crap, so any act of reverse action deserves praise. Ultra Blue II is another successful product of this brand, and Tellurium Q may add another award to its extensive collection.”

“Ultra Blue II is a smooth, subtle and musical sounding speaker cable, with an impressive amount of detail considering its modest price – yet it never overwhelms or irritates. Indeed it’s a highly refined design that gives many more expensive rivals a hard time. Excellent construction quality seals the deal.”

“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.”

“…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.”

“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.”

“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.”
