"One day I was asked if the Ricable cables were reliable. At the time I was building little more than prototypes in a basement and in a burst of pride I replied: "Of course! They are so reliable that I guarantee them for life!". That's how I came up with the idea of making cables so reliable that they could be guaranteed forever.

A lot of water has passed under the bridge since then, and today I can proudly say that Ricable is no longer just a start-up, but a solid company with healthy philosophies and concrete projects.

A company is a synthesis of the people who work in it and its history, so we want you to know more about who we are, where we have come from and where we want to go, so that you too can, in some way, be part of our Family.

ADVENTURE RICABLE

End 2009

From an idea of Sergio Modenesi, a collaborator at Troniteck (which at that time sold mainly computers) and a lover of high fidelity, comes the idea of starting a marketing of specific cables for Hi-Fi with its own brand. The brand was coined from the conjunction of the name of the son of the creator (Riccardo) and the word "cable" in English ("cable"), which together give life to the name of the new brand Ri-cable. The logo is created to accompany the first products sold, which are delivered to the customer in transparent bags with labels made with amateur graphics.

June 2010

HDMI cables were a novelty at the time and were increasingly outshining the old scart protocol. At the time, Troniteck carried out its activity in the garage of the owner's house and, as a warehouse, had a basement rented for little money. Among the products it sold, there were some very expensive HDMI cables, with higher performance than the standard ones and the starting point of the adventure Ricable was just this: to design high performance HDMI cables, but that were cheaper than the others. This is how the first two HDMI series Ricable were born: Ultimate and Premium.

December 2010

After the first confirmations with the Entry Level series of HDMI cables, the design continued and a high-performance HDMI cable (HDMI Hi-End) and the ingenious Across series were realised, which solved a difficult installation problem, especially on long distances, for the passage of HDMI cables in cable ducts. Ricable was the first company in Italy to develop cables of this type.

January 2011

The characteristic white packaging that still accompanies Ricable cablesin people's homes was designed. The idea was to develop an original, ecological package produced in Italy that was different from the blister packaging that was all the rage at the time.

July 2011

Once the HDMI catalogue was organised in the best possible way, the real research began on what has always been the founder's pet project, i.e. creating audio cables for Hi-Fi. The first analogue cables INTERCONNECTand coaxial cables are inserted, always with external production, branded Ricable. Moreover, the Troniteck premises are enlarged, renting another portion of the basement to make room for the management of the brand Ricable, which was gaining ground. In this period the cables INTERCONNECTand the Digital Coaxial Hi-End and Ultimate cables were born.

December 2011

At that time there was an increasing demand for good quality bipolar Speaker cables, so the first Made in Italy product was added to the catalogue, the ancestor of the Ricable Custom 2.5, which was sold only by the linear metre or in reels. In 2011, sales of the Ricable brand increased almost fivefold compared to 2010.

2012-2013

These are two years of transition for the brand Ricable, both in terms of production and turnover. They start thinking about how to organise in-house production, how to develop the catalogue and how to design and test new products. In the meantime, sales are consolidated and the brand takes its place in Troniteck's economies. It is no longer just an idea.

March 2014

2014 is the year when all HDMI series were upgraded to the 2.0 protocol and the top of the range, Supreme HDMI, was added. There are now five HDMI series, although the inexpensive Premium series is being discontinued, as it deviates too much from the Ricable philosophy of making only the highest quality cables.

In June 2014, the turning point came. After months of trials and tests, the first truly handcrafted product Ricable is born: Supreme Speaker. Twenty hours of work were needed to produce the first piece; efforts were concentrated on identifying the best possible production logic in order to optimise production and reduce processing times.

Other Made in Italy cables produced by Ricable are added: Supreme Signal, a stereo INTERCONNECTcable, Ultimate and Hi-End Speaker, two Speaker cables of a lower level than the Supreme. An area reserved for cable assembly is set up in the Troniteck premises, the first small workshop Ricable.

October 2014

Ricable is also beginning to be appreciated and requested by installers and car builders, so a programme is being launched which is the genesis of what will later be Ricable Custom, with the inclusion of many products aimed at installers and car builders.

2015

May saw the introduction of the first Supreme XLR balanced cable, followed in July by the first reels of cable per metre, which were measured and packaged entirely by hand using rather rudimentary methods. Above all, however, 2015 was a turning point. It was realised that the Ricable brand could be the future of the business and the first concrete project was planned, which involved acquiring suitable premises, transforming the company into a company with the name Ricable and centralising most of the production in Italy. Sales of Ricable products soar and the brand begins to be known as a synonym for quality and reliability.

2016

May is the month of the first participation to the Monaco Hi-End as exhibitors and in this context is scheduled the presentation of the whole range Ricable Power , the first entirely designed and built by Ricable. The activity, although still under the name of Troniteck, moves to the new headquarters, but work is done under the radar to better organize the production and the creation of the new company Ricable Srl. In 2016 there is a further increase in sales under the Ricable brand.

2017

The design of the new series Magnus, Dedalus and Invictus, entirely designed and built at Ricable with new quality standards, is launched. These will be the backbone and hallmark of Ricable for years to come. New HDMI cables with active processor are also introduced. In 2017, sales of the Ricable brand are further consolidated.

March 2018

March 2018 marks a milestone in the growth Ricable. The brand, born as a simple intuition eight years earlier, has grown over the years absorbing Troniteck's philosophy based on reliability and seriousness, channelling it into the development of a very precise idea: to create its own Made in Italy product that could become a reference in the market. Ricable Srl was officially established, absorbing also the Troniteck and Altason brands.

April 2018

One of the first activities of Ricable Srl was to create a distinctive feature for Custom Installation products, with the creation of a brand, a catalogue and a website dedicated to these articles. This is how the brand Ricable Custom was born, with products exclusively for installers and self builders, deriving from the production Ricable, which are characterised by high performance.

September 2018

A planning report is drawn up for the three-year period 2019/2021 that envisages expansion of the brand abroad and consolidation of the Italian market. At the same time, the marketing of all products in the Magnus, Dedalus and Invictus series officially begins.

2019

The new Primus series debuts, the ideal solution for Entry Level Hi-Fi systems. Primus puts an end to the external production of Audio Hi-Fi cables, which are now all exclusively designed and manufactured in Italy, in the laboratory Ricable.

2020

In the year in which everything changed, the Ricable catalogue was renewed with a number of key items. The Magnus USB cable has finally been released, followed closely by variations and extensions of the Jack cables. Not only new entries, but also improvements: Invictus Speaker has been upgraded to Reference and Magnus Speaker has been updated to MKII.

2021

The health emergency, which it was hoped could be eradicated within a year, continues, despite the first glimmers of light thanks to the vaccine. The work to make the Ricable catalogue more and more complete, however, continues, thanks to the inclusion of Dedalus and Invictus USB and AES/EBU cables. The new entries are really a lot: besides the mentioned cables, there are also Dedalus Speaker Elite, Visus HDMI 2.1 and the cables Magnus Jack/RCA, Jack 6.3 and its extension, together with the extension of Jack 3.5. Not only novelties, however, but also improvements to what already exists; Invictus Speaker reaches the Reference version, while the cables Speaker Dedalus (with relative jumpers), Magnus and Primus become MKII. As well as Magnus Power .
