Will it change sound quality? No.
Will it reduce noise? No. It might even make things worse.
How do I know this?
Science and years of practical experience.
If you have some good reason to think otherwise, please post it!
I can tell you that is a fact.
Back in '07 I decided to setup my custom speakers in another room for stereo TT & CD use.
I did not have long enough lengths of speaker cable. So I went over to RS and the only small rolls they had were Monster Cable.
On the package it stated that the cable had a dielectric running up the middle that "improved HF".
That cable made the HF sound edgy and harsh, I could not stand it. Right then and there, I ordered some 12 ga from BJC. When it showed up two days later, and connected, the HF sound was back to what it was for ever...great.
So I can not say I've heard an improvement in sound from changing cables...but I have heard the sound degrade from poor quality cables.
