If wire can have an impact to the sound, then to me using the wire the creators of music used made sense(If I wanted to be as close to reproducing the original sound). Canare is a top quality product any how at a very reasonable price. I saw fit to replace the more expensive Kimber and Monster with it.
Recently, I ordered more GS6. In the last few weeks when I replaced the last of my Kimber, I wasn't expecting to hear any difference. Well, I did. It seemed to me over all clarity improved. My final position on wire is that all do not sound the same and they are more similar than dis-similar. Wow it took me 16yrs to get around to changing all my wire.
If you have spent any time on this site at all you will know that in the past a post like this would have started a huge argument.
I have changed out cables dozens of times over the course of the last 20-30 years. I have tried everything from aftermarket power cords, to bi-wiring, to monster, to Goertz, to you name it. I have used cheap cables, expensive cables on everything from my guitar amps, to guitar cords, to speaker cable and inter-connects in both my HT system and two channel music systems. I have spent a considerable time in recording studios, and actually was a roadie/engineer for several bands many many years ago. But I have to say I have never heard any difference in cable regardless of what I used or heard. This would seem to jibe with the many, in depth, posts that the "scientists" have posted. This has led me to believe, perhaps incorrectly that, given quality construction, there is no difference in SQ between cables. Consequently, I am always open minded when somebody comes along and posts that they heard differences. My goal is not to challange, when the statement is made, but to question as to what the differences are and why. Your answer is generally what has been posted. No reason, no explanation, just a simple: "I hear one"
Perhaps someday, someone will come along that can actually answer the question as to why, exactly, such differences exist beyond anecdotal evidence.
