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?


Hi @jetter ,

Just to clarify, my topup money is 2850usd and 100usd transport vietnam to us,and my original HFC UR CT-1 RCA interconnect I purchased used around 2000usd, 

so total it around 4950usd

I've contacted Rick.

He said was the company president, although he just an employee. The event that HFC have massive discount, collect the money and shutdown don't related to him as that time he wasn't in the US anymore due to visa issue.

Rick said he can't give me some thing for free, cuz he just starting on  his own, and offer a discount for his product. I replied I can only spare max of 500usd for his new product and still waiting for his further reply,

You guys please share if you have other infos. thanks you

@tranchautuan I think you are getting the run around to be frank. From my understanding Rick was the owner of HFC and moved from the USA to Canada because of some sort of passport issues. Don't know all the circumstances but at this point I would NOT give Rick or this company any more money. Be careful and hope you can recoup some of your funds.

I'm also aware of it. Let's see how this become. Haven't got any further respond from Rick.

This is the first actual case of someone claiming they are owed money from HFC’s abrupt shutdown, and it was for a cable upgrade. If its legit I am sure Rick will come good on this.

I too have the HFC CT-1 UR interconnects. I do not know how close they are in performance to the new Apparition or the HFC Helix cables, but they destroy every single competitor, like smash them to another planet. HFC is the only cable brand I came across that has a very distinct improvement vs the subtle improvement you normally get from cable upgrade.

I also have the CT-1 UR digital cable (its the exact same cable as the interconnects but with an orange band - the magnetic tech requires transmission lines to function). Periodically I try various digital cables and none come close.

Hi @agisthos ,

I'm sure i'm not the only one, you could see HFC facebook page,

others may have quickly or lucky enough to get their money refunded, not me.

I still have the invoice from HFC, I contact with Casey from HFC at that time.

Sound-quality wise, I'm also still prefer Rick's inventions. Currently I still use his basic CT1 interconnect and speaker cables, and power cord from his fist company Virtual Dynamics. 

But the last and largest investment lost is too much on me.
