    Tellurium Q Ultra Black is the cable they wanted to make from day one. Tellurium Q told there UK distributor what to expect as they 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 there 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”.

    Tellurium Q think that the production version sounds better than the prototype.

    "Whatever you do, don’t audition the Ultra Black. As I said before, once you do, there’s no going back". Steve Dickenson, Hi Fi Plus, Awards issue 2010

    "What the Ultra Blacks will do for your record collection is to both extract the fine detail from within and reveal its personality. The Ultra Blacks will lay bare your music, getting under the skin of each recording". Paul Rigby, HiFi World 2010

    "The extension is incredibly clean and natural and I must say that I didn’t manage to find that in another cable until now... I’ve been listening to some live recordings which were incredibly real, from the sounds in the audiences, to the voices and instruments on the stage. Even the clapping was hauntingly lifelike, putting me right there in front of the audience.

    The Ultra Black gives life to the voices, it gives them better presence and textures but also a very natural and pleasant tonality. They’re smooth but clean in the same time".
    Dan-Alexandru Gheorghe, Head Mania

    We are pleased to offer a free cable burn-in service for this cable when purchased through us. The Nordost VIDAR cable burn-in machine combines three different functions all in one operation:

    • It neutralises charges that build up around the cables and the insulation

    • It provides a very wide band and deep conditioning into the conductor core, which produces changes in the way signals pass through the metal.

    • It ultrasonically conditions the surface of the conductors.

    • The VIDAR uses a proprietary combination of composite and complex signals to condition the cables. Parts of the signal oscillate at ultra-low frequencies, while other parts are in ultra-high ranges which extend beyond the range of video frequencies. The signal bounces in a ping-ping ball-like fashion from one end of the cable to the other. During the burn-in process, ultra-low frequencies penetrate deep into the core of the cable. The ultra-high frequencies zip along the surface. This method of signal transmission a set up beat harmonics, or heterodynes, between the two complex waveforms. In the digital domain, this would be referred to as aliasing products. These beat frequencies penetrate all layers of the cable.

      The design of the circuitry also has a unique feature which drives electrons above the conductor into the dielectric (or insulation) area. The VIDAR not only sends ping pong signals along the cable, it also sends a similar signal from the centre core to the outer shield in the case of interconnect cables. This function neutralises the electrical charges discussed above.

      So what does that all mean to me?
      The end result of conditioning cables with the Nordost VIDAR is improved sound staging, increased detail, and an overall more musical presentation.



      About Tellurium Q

      Tellurium Q tm is primarily an audio research and development (R&D) company that also manufactures products. R & D is at the centre of every decision they take and every product they make.

      That is why Tellurium Q design and develop products starting with a completely blank canvas and ask “what is really happening with this process, in these materials” and build on solid fundamentals. That is why you may find that what they produce might look a little different from what you might expect but that is just because they are focused on how to get a better clearer sound. How something looks is of secondary importance because they are working for the serious audiophile and music lover who, like us,wants to hear more in their music. That may be the reason that although their a little company has only just appeared on the HiFi scene has immediately been awarded 5 Globes for an entire speaker cable range, awarded cables of the year for the ENTIRE cable range by HiFi Plus magazine and again product of the year by HIFi World in their Jan 2011 edition. All in the first 12 months!

      Because Tellurium will not make a product that is just good or average, it has to be exceptional or they will not release it, that delayed the launch of their interconnect. While they had a product that was good and would stand up as well as any other cable it wasn't truly outstanding. So even though they were told that Tellurium Q's sales of speaker cable were being damaged by not having an interconnect to go with the cable they dug our heels in. There is just too much cable in the market now, so unless you can contribute something better and different why waste people’s time?

      This is our promise and they are completely serious about it. When you buy a Tellurium Q tm audio product you will be getting what Tellurium believe to be the very best available in its price range.

    This review starts with the Tellurium-Q Black Speaker cables, then moves on to the Ultra-Black Speaker cables and the Ultra-Black Interconnect cable. I had being making do with the cheap, best buy speaker cables I bought in the 90s for far too long. I finally bought the Tellurium-Q Black Speaker cables that I had ear marked years before. The improvement was dramatic; every facet of the music improved but especially the bass. I was delighted with the cables and my only wish is that I had bought them much sooner. For the price I would recommend these speaker cables without hesitation. Enthused by this improvement I borrowed some Ultra- Black Speaker cables from Future Shop (which is where I bought the Black Speaker cables from). This took a little bit of arranging as I bi-amp my speakers so two sets of trial cables were needed , but the chaps at Future Shop were very helpful and managed to find them and get them to me. My intent with the home demonstration of the UBs was to satisfy my curiosity rather than buy them. Unfortunately the UBs sound significantly better than the Blacks. Describing changes & improvements in music is difficult – and very subjective - so I will keep it short and focus on the main differences of the UBs over the Blacks. The resolution & naturalness of the bass was better and there was even a slight extension in the bass. The improvement in the bass was quite a surprise given the huge improvement the Blacks had already given. The other major change was the huge increase in mid-range detail, even in the busiest pieces of music every instrument is audible and clearly defined with a lovely openness. (The UB Speaker cables quickly reveal poorly recorded CDs.) But was it worth the BIG step-up in price ? After 2 long weekends of listening I packed up the UBs and re-connected my Blacks. This is when I finally decided. The same Black cables that had “delighted” me only a few weeks previously were now – rather disappointing. I bought the UBs. The UBs are undoubtedly better than the Blacks but whether they are worth the extra cost is less clear cut. So, I would recommend a home listening using loan cables from Future Shop but only if you can afford them, because you are going to want to buy them. Whilst exchanging the Black speaker cables for my new UBs from Future Shop I decided to buy the matching UB-Interconnect for the CD player to the pre-amp. My existing interconnect was from the early 2000s, a well-reviewed, low to mid-price cable, but the UB interconnect still gave a very discernible improvement. The Black speaker cables had got rid of the slightly harsh sibilance I had endured so long, in addition to the improvements outlined above the UB speaker cables had given the upper range an open and mellifluous feel. The UB –Interconnect seemed to confer that spaciousness and mellifluousness all the way down to the bass. Although I have paused a bit in my cable upgrading I have decided the power cables are next. And I will use Future Shop to help me with that. They have all been friendly and helpful and appear genuinely enthusiastic about cables. And the home trial facility for certain cables has resulted in my ending up with the UB Speaker cables – for which I am truly grateful.

    Having drastically upgraded all my Hi Fi components over the past year I decided to upgrade both the RCA's from my Lector reference Digicode DAC & speaker cables . Having demoed Audience 24se, Townshend Isoda's & Fractals along with the excellent Kimber Monocle XL being the last & by far the best compared to the other 2 which while being highly reviewed over many years offered no comparison to the Kimbers. In fact the Kimbers were so good I rang Gary to cancel my Tellurium Ultra Black order, he said that numerous people had said the TQ's were better & I should at least listen before making an informed decision. Once hooked up to my primarily tube system one thing became apparent immediately is they sounded so much more detailed & realistic compared to the Kimbers . After a week of bedding in the TQ's transformed being much warmer & transient with all instruments separated with every detail , quite frankly they are in another league to any other brand out there which includes Nordost & Synergistic Research which I have 2 of their top XLR & XLR EBU cables which while being excellent, not in the same league. In terms of value for money I would of happily pay 2-3 times for the Ultra Blacks for what they offer in terms of sheer sound quality, they clearly are doing something very special as every cable has won numerous awards since launching & even most wanted component in the US 2 years running where most of the top brands are. I have a feeling I will be changing all my cables to TQ when funds allow - they really are that exceptional

    These are the best speaker cables I've had since I got my Hifi Setup, the soundstage for all types of music is so open you can hear every instrument being played without them all kind of mushing together like other cables. Sometimes I've noticed the vocals are a little laid back and don't push you into your seat like previous cables but this I think is better on some recordings as it lets you hear everything and the vocals don't overwhelm the song. Tried with vinyl and Hi Res Downloads as well as CD Quality music. I started off with Stevie Wonder and an original copy of Songs In The Key Of Life on vinyl and it really did just mesmorise me with Stevie's vocals and the rest of the music. I ordered the product on a Friday and within 10 days I had received it and had it playing in my system, I went for the 72 hour burn in but this was my own fault as I was open to get it for the weekend and really should have got the 96 hour burn in as it would have arrived on the same day. I am hoping the more its used it will get even better as it gets used to my whole setup. Really cannot fault the service or quality of these cables, they are expensive certainly if you need longer lengths but if you can save up for them they are a very worthy addition to any system. Of course as with all cables,gear they should be tested by yourself in a system before buying in case their sound isn't to your taste.My last point I've only had them 2 days and I honestly think there is such a big difference compared to my previous cables which were Black Rhodium Samba VS'1s.
