High Fidelity Cables?

I’ve noticed for the past week or so, that my favorite cable manufacturer, High Fidelity Cables, is closed due to Covid.  Anyone know anything more?



If you read the post referred to earlier written by one of their long term employees, you will see that she clearly states that the company is closed for good. I hope that they have not filed for protection and that you are able to recover your money in some way.

If HFC is forever closed, it really is a sad day for audiophiles....In my 45+ years in this hobby, I've really only experienced 2 or 3 a-ha moments....and the HFC power cords/interconnects was one of those moments.  I think Rick is a brilliant audio inventor.  Based on what I've read about his contact enhancement products, I'm thinking this was a potential a-ha moment as well....If Rick does re-invent himself....I hope he sticks to creating new products....and finds someone else to manage all other aspects of the business.....

There is always two sides to the story. I heard there were a lot of internal problems with HFC that had to do with staffing, along with supply issues . Maybe some head bumping ?. Someone will get pissed and sling Mud, say bad things ?. They are closed for now. Rick will have to regroup. I think he will do that and,  like calgarian said, come up with a different management model. I am a big fan. I use just about all of his products. The thing is with HFC cables , the materials used are quite different from regular cables. A lot of other  cables use simpler production methods. Its like cooking. if you cant get a certain spice, that meal is not going to get prepared, a lot of hungry bellies. I guess thats one way to put it. That insane pricing comment from roxy, yeah I get it. A lot of Audiophiles would zero in on the big money stuff even though the Cable manufacturer produce bang for the buck cables that performs pretty good. There are cables out there that cost more than HFC. Anyway, I dont say much on Audiogon. I just stay on the sidelines. I must say ,most of you guys seem to be pretty smart Audiophiles, from what I read.

Good Luck to Rick/HFC.






Rick is a true innovator. Assuming his health is okay, I hope he can find a true balance. Work on his projects and let someone else run the business.
