Tellurium Blue is the entry level speaker cable that was designed to be the companion to Tellurium Q Black and has been described by one well known manufacturer of speakers as having “good mid, but softer sounding” than the Tellurium Black.
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.
Black was the first cable from Tellurium Q and they knew they were on to something special when they took the prototypes to various dealers for their comments and input. One in particular would not believe that it could match the somewhat thicker more expensive cables.
The “Silver” (Silver and Ultra Silver) has been designed for those who love detail. As has already been commented on, with the Ultra silver the top end is extraordinarily detailed without any harshness. The “Silver” leans more to neutral, detail and extension.
Tellurium Blue Diamond (formerly known as Green) is the companion cable to Tellurium Ultra Black and is probably more suitable for slightly bright systems as they have a very slight “mellowing” effect. This can be particularly beneficial with class D and T amplifiers.
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.
This cable is distinctive from the Black range by focusing even more on detail. Whereas the Black range has been described as natural/neutral the Ultra Silver is being spoken about in terms of the incredible new level of detail, so neutral/detail would be a good description.
Born out of research to improve upon the old Graphite. The Graphite was referred to as “the best speaker cables I’ve ever heard” by one reviewer but even so the Black Diamonds significantly out perform them without any of the apparent drawbacks of the old Graphite.
So what’s different? Well, compared to the Black Diamond, which was their award winning multi-product of the year cable, the Silver Diamond has even better bass definition, improved detail and a more extended top end (without any harshness).
The Blue RCA is Tellurium Q's entry level RCA. Tellurium Q put significant time and resources into developing the Blue RCA further and the new version leaves the old Blue in its wake in terms of performance – Tellurium Q are truly proud of it and hope you will be too.
“Nowhere does the music sound sharp or thin, but very open, transparent, defined. Everything sounds completely balanced. The sound is completely separate from the speakers and we feel as if we ourselves were present at the shooting.” – Harro Tillema, Alpha-Audio.
The first of the RCAs in Tellurim Q's range to use the new TeCu connector. 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.
The Ultra Silver RCA is one of Tellurium Q's “hidden gems”. Smooth and natural presentation that is a very definite step up in performance from the award-winning Ultra Black II. Over shadowed and overlooked but surprises as soon as you plug it into your system.
The previous Tellurium Q reference RCA for one very good reason – they are staggeringly good, detailed and smooth while reducing apparent harshness. Music is presented as a coherent, organic whole, with a jaw-dropping sense of realism and naturalness.
The Silver Diamond RCA Interconnects were developed and designed after the Silver Diamond speaker cable to complement and reveal as much of that “world leading” performance as possible. Will suit systems where detail and a full range, natural sound are important.
The Blue phono RCA is a great entry level phono cable for your turntable, as you would hopefully expect from Tellurium Q. The earth lead that comes with your cable is separate for flexibility in the system. Warm and forgiving for systems with a slight edge.
The Black RCA Phono turntable cable is a significant step up in performance from the Blue and comes with a separate earth link. Looks very much the same as the RCA cable but if you put the RCA then phono RCA into your turntable you will soon hear which is meant to be there.
Ultra Black II tone arm cable RCA to RCA being from the DNA of the rest of the Ultra Black II family exhibits the same outstanding performance that the reviews for this family of cables indicate. Additionally, each and every Ultra Black II phono cable is pre-conditioned.
The Black Diamond RCA Phono turntable cable is the Tellurium Q reference level product for very good reason. The sound quality is on a par with the rest of the Black Diamond range – incredible. This construction has the earth link buried in the main body of the cable itself.
The Ultra Black II tone arm cable is the hybrid offspring of the R&D from the award winning Statement tone arm cable and the development that brought about the Ultra Black II cables. Meaning it has all the hallmark traits and performance of the Ultra Black II range.
The Blue XLR is Tellurium Q's entry level XLR and we think that you will be surprised by how good it sounds. The Blue II series of cables are warm and forgiving for systems with a slight edge or for those who like a more smooth laid back presentation.
As was written in Audio stream when comparing it to another cable: greater clarity, a more natural presentation, a more open yet defined sound image, improved tonal qualities and, taking a few steps back, a more engaging musical experience.
Like the Black XLR, just much better and using Tellurium Copper connectors. For a richer more detailed sound. Smooth and finely detailed. Music is presented as a coherent, organic whole, with a jaw-dropping sense of realism and naturalness.
The Ultra Silver XLR is one of Tellurium Q's “hidden gems”. Smooth and natural presentation that is a very definite step up in performance from the award-winning Ultra Black II. Over shadowed and overlooked but surprises as soon as you plug it into your system.
The Black Diamond XLR are Tellurium Q in a cable. The Black Diamond XLR uses Tellurium Q's own TeCu connector and is the most natural sounding cable in the range, which is saying something. Jaw-dropping sense of realism and naturalness.
The Silver Diamond XLR sits right at the top of all Tellurium Q's families of sound in terms of performance. Highly detailed, incredible range and above all natural. Once you hear a Silver Diamond XLR you will find it difficult to go back.
