ULTRA LINE

After eight years of research, MasterBuilt Audio is proud to announce the availability of Ultra Line cables.  Ultra is based on exotic formulation and assembly techniques developed for information transmission systems by aerospace engineers.  Numerous high profile organizations, both government and private, utilize this design for mission critical applications.  MasterBuilt Audio is the only company licensed to utilize this technology for commercial audio use.  Key to the audio version of the Ultra design is maintaining extremely subtle details  by managing the flow of electrons through the conductors and the avoidance of interaction in both the conductors and insulating materials.  Highly specialized winding techniques also contribute to Ultra’s performance advantages.

The benefit of this technology becomes evident with the first listening session.  You immediately hear low level detail that you didn't know you were missing, previously only heard in live performances.  At the same time, even during the most dynamic music passages, you hear the fine detail of authentic timbres, harmonic richness, and a physical palpability that you've not experienced, except again, at live performances.  Each instrument and voice occupies a distinct space with the individual nuances of each instrument/voice easily identified all the while enveloped with the essential ambience of the recording venue.  The Ultra Line is so revealing that to reap its full benefits, the pinnacle of performance is required from all associated components from source to speaker.  Due to the extreme costs of manufacturing the proprietary metal alloys as well as the nature of this proprietary engineering design and manufacturing process, the Ultra Line is an exclusive product that is reserved for the world's finest audio systems and discerning audiophiles.

IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT POWER CORDS:  Audiophiles should realize that the first component in the system is the power cord.  This “first component” must be distortion-free and able to conduct a very large amount of current and voltage into the component.  It is known that the musical signal consists of voltage and current sourced from the a.c. wall outlet, and the component simply “modulates” that power into a musical waveform. Inexpensive power cords that come with most components will add distortion or remove quality of the signal.  For that reason, a high quality and non-reactive cable should be used; once the signal has been corrupted, it is impossible to reverse this damage regardless of the quality of components that follow.

While incorporating the highest levels of MasterBuilt insulation and winding geometric technology, the Ultra Line have one significant advancement over all other lines by utilizing conductors made with a proprietary alloy from precious metals.  This super-pure transmission path provides a distortion free signal to your electronics that is unmatched and results in enormous levels of dynamic range combined with high resolution of fine detail. By installing Ultra Line power cords to a system, listeners are able to hear details never before experienced from their reference recordings.  Ultra Line are by far the apex of power cords and as such, belong in only the world’s finest systems!

INTERCONNECTS

The MasterBuilt Ultra Line Interconnect is the only type of its kind in the world, regardless of price.  Based on a proprietary formula of non-metallic ingredients combined with an alloy of precious metals, Ultra was designed to simulate a “zero” resistance wire, as used in high profile organizations, both government and private.  As Ultra Line wire is extremely expensive to manufacture using proprietary methods only available in the U.S. and as such, its price is by necessity very high and can therefore only be used in very select systems.

However, if you own an ultimate stereo system and music is a very important part of your lifestyle, Ultra interconnects are for you.  Ultra Line Interconnects provide extremely wide bandwidth and a dynamic range which approaches true realism, with an amazing level of purity, clarity, and holographic depth.  Each interconnect is handcrafted and is built to order.  For the world’s finest systems, MasterBuilt Ultra Line Interconnects are the only choice.

DIGITAL CABLES

In the world’s finest systems, even the smallest amount of signal degradation will result in inferior performance and the digital signal from your source is highly critical.  Our digital cables are design to have an optimized impedance as per the type of cables: SPDIF ~ 75ohm; USB ~ 90ohm; AES/EBU ~ 110ohm.
Furthermore, the connector and cable design are optimized to achieve the least amount of losses (ie. insertion loss and return loss) for the digital signal transfer between the transport/server and DAC. These interconnect incorporate Ultra Line technology including our proprietary alloy made with precious metals to deliver the purest signal. The benefit of our cable design, high grade conductors, and materials translate to a digital cable with low jitter and attenuation loss.

SPEAKER CABLES

MasterBuilt Ultra Line are the apex of audio cables.  Although extremely costly to produce, the performance is well worth the price to music lovers who own the world’s finest audio systems.  Your speaker cable is the final leg in the signal path of your system and can drastically affect the performance of components both in front and behind it,  regardless of quality.  Ultra Line Speaker Cables are the finishing touch in your quest to reproduce a simulation of live music in your home.

 

MasterBuilt utilizes a proprietary alloy made from precious metals developed by the U.S. aerospace industry to approach as close to a zero resistance state as possible.  The resistance of the Ultra Alloy is so low that a minute voltage pulse would travel through the cable without audible loss.  This trait is critical for use in speaker cables by providing purity of sound, image focus, and an incredible dynamic range.

If you own a world-class audio system and haven’t auditioned the Ultra Line of audio cables, you owe it to yourself to hear how these award winning cables will drastically improve your system.
