Well sure. You're just stating the obvious and it's even off-topic. The issue at hand is about the spectrum of perceivable sound quality, the subject of musicianship and songwriting has not been the issue during this thread. It's about different technology producing different results, and then making a statement about whether or not that difference is desirable to YOU.
Cables have nothing to do with emotional content, that is absurd, but if replacing the tube microphone cable that goes to its power supply with a custom gold/silver alloy one is imparting a change in the high-frequency material that has gotten you closer to the ideal sound in one's mind, then there can be no argument other than:
1) Is this something that needs to be rejected because money is an issue and it will only cause cognitive dissonance for the average slut? - or -
2) At what point is there no difference between cable quality imparting change and who is to say where the limit is drawn? Can you *really* say that there is no difference at all....
