The job of a speaker wire is to make a difference? In my hobby, high fidelity, the job of a speaker wire is to faithfully/accurately transmit the signal perfectly without any discernible alteration or difference, aka "transparently". If the sound is audibly different the wire is low fidelity.
In A/V reproduction accuracy, there IS no concept of "accounting for personal taste/preference". As art consumers we don't "pick" the level of bass, nor the tint/brightness of a scene's sky, any more than we pick the ending of a novel or Mona Lisa's type of smile. "High fidelity" means "high truthfulness", faithful to the original artist's intent: an unmodified, neutral, accurate copy of the original master, ideally being exact and with no discernable alterations, aka "transparency".
