You guys are hilarious. I am with you on the issue that the whole aftermarket cabling thing is generally full of black magic and sorcery however underneath all the BS there are electrical differences in cables: impedance, capacitance and resistance. I really believe that measurements help explain some things but I also fully believe that measurements do not tell us everything. There are many non-linear dynamic processes in audio reproduction that are very difficult if not impossible to measure and quantify.
Personally I can only go by my experiences, and I have heard the differences in cables. BUT and it's a BIG BUT they are at the bottom of my chain of importance. The audio chain goes (for me at least) speakers, room acoustics, source, power conditioners, amplifiers, cables. Unless your room acoustics and speakers are optimized then spending the amount of money audiophile cable companies want you to spend is just a waste of money. I'll say it again one more time: you would get better returns investing in better speakers and room acoustics.
