My point exactly. The stock cable is a perfectly good electric conductor and I would really like to know which electrical property of the cardas cable takes away that supposed "veil". The op first creates a problem in form of some kind of veil in the sound and then recommends an other cable to cure that problem.
You know, funnily enough, whilst I agree with your point about hundred dollar cables being just as good an electrical conductor as the stock cable, I wouldn't say that custom cables are without their merits. For one, many custom cables look absolutely gorgeous in all their braided goodness. You might say aesthetics have nothing to do with music but I disagree. Not only that, they are often made at a much better and reliable quality.
Fitting metaphors might be perhaps food presentation. A cafe might charge you twice as much for an added piece of garnish to the same sandwich and given the combination of the garnish and price lead you to enjoy the same sandwich more. If taste is a multi-sensoral experience, what's to say hearing is not? Or take a designer jacket; it may not provide more warmth than a thrift store jacket, but the designer jacket sure looks a hell of a lot better and is less likely to rip from the seams. Perhaps the best analogy I can provide is that a red sportscar with always be faster than an otherwise identical sportscar of another colour.
