For the last 2-3 years we have been intrigued by the High Fidelity Cables brand and their unique approach to preserving the focus and precision of the audio signal through the use of what they call "magnetic conduction."
First some background:
What is Magnetic Conduction?
High Fidelity Cables' designer describes magnetic conduction "...as a new, patented form of conduction implementing specially arranged magnetic fields to concentrate the signal within the conductor. The electrons of the audio signal have a quantum spin which gives them their "magnetic moment" or charge. It's this charge which allows the electrons to react with magnetic fields. So if we use a magnetic conductor instead of a regular conductor, we can guide the electrons (the audio signal) through the conductor in a very precise way to reduce distortion and signal loss.

The first implementation of the High Fidelity Cables consisted of 3 levels of speaker, interconnect, power and digital cables - the CT-1, the CT-1E, and the CT-1 Ultimate. While they were enthusiastically reviewed by the press, and also in house by The Cable Company, they are undeniably expensive.
The head honcho at High Fidelity Cables, Rick Schultz, realized that the high cost of his cable designs needed to be addressed, so he went back to the drawing board and started with a clean slate. The result is a whole series of new cables called "Reveal". As a further measure to keep the costs affordable for the user, he added in skinnier than usual margins, both for the manufacturer and for the dealers, ending up with a quasi "direct price" - something of a gift for the audiophile!
