Thank you Roxy and Albert, I write the way I hear it. Fact is that I am excruciatingly picky about sound and music... Liking High Fidelity wires was completely unexpected. Certainly taught me something about keeping an open mind.
The next instalment might end up being a little... Drier than the intro section.
Guidocorona...starting at the beginning of Rick's cables allows you to fully appreciate how great they are. you will,if/when you continue up the ladder,find that at each level there is another surprise waiting for you.each rung you climb contains more of the same greatness,,just more of it.you don't have to get to the top to find the level that allows you to finally find the musical enjoyment that you previously thought impossible.it's about the music not the jewelry.
"you don't have to get to the top to find the level that allows you to finally find the musical enjoyment that you previously thought impossible."
Given all the very good stuff already out there, I have to wonder if one found it previously impossible, in particular after trying many things over many years perhaps, if any wire alone will turn out to be the cure?
Maybe. Of course many find musical enjoyment possible via much more earthy means. You gotta try that first to know, unless of course money is no object. Its all about different strokes for different folks I suppose.
I'm just a poor working shmoe with few connections. I gotta suffer with mere $3 digit wires it seems.
The magnets used hold a permanent charge unless you heat them up past 170F so I have read in other published sources.. I once tried to demagnetize some neo magnets for a special purpose and cooked at 500F for 30 minutes and they still seemed to hold their full charge. I had to come up with a different work around.

Hmmmm... Tom, IMO if room conditions warmed up any HFC neodymium magnets to 500F for more than 30 minutes in anyone's system, magnetic loss might be the least of the user's concerns. An anti-audiophile neighbor might have gotten real tired of 'em loud noises, and done som'pm real good 'nd final like 'bout 'em. peace disturbers *grins!*
“Sometimes we find audible magic by a serendipitous leap of faith which lets us overcome some aprioristic skepticism that otherwise prevented us from even auditioning an electronic component, a speaker, or a set of wires."
Cheap at any price. 'audible magic', that is. Or perhaps any sort of magic, for that matter.
I too love Rick's High Fidelity cables-
It's too bad that a friend who bought some used, is having issues w/ his speaker cables- His used ICs are great-
He is not happy, as Rick HAS NOT answered either his emails or phone calls for the last several weeks !
I understand Rick was at the CAS recently, however that's NO excuse...
Lighten up. Its not Rick's job to answer every phone call and/or e-mail he gets immediately. He also has a life. Your buddy has also not put a nickel into Rick's pockets, buying Rick's cables used. Probably doesn't really matter to Rick, because that's the kind of guy he is. However, I get annoyed when I see this air of "expectation" or "entitlement" created by someone who hasn't even purchased the product new from the person he expects support from.
Rick has been at shows and has a service department to handle "issues" - whether Rick communicates directly or not is up to Rick, certainly not your friend nor you nor I. Rick's office and service department phones work. I suggest your friend seek a solution from whoever sold him the used speaker cables. Another option is to ask for assistance on this forum. Many of us with lots of High Fidelity experience, such as Guido (above) would be happy to assist if we can.
Taking a cheap shot at Rick, especially on behalf of someone else, is just asking for trouble, especially on THIS forum. It just makes people NOT want to help......
