Noise and signal loss

I've been noticing different recording levels using different cables during sessions recently. Is there an easy way to test cable signal "quality", i.e., acceptable noise levels and signal loss? thanks...

A cable IF wired correctly should NOT have level difference, Unless you have a balanced out driving an unbalanced in, this can create a 6dB loss.
But balanced to balanced, unbalanced to unbalanced you should not have any differences..
And transformer balanced out to balanced OR unbalanced in should have NO signal loss.
