I think there is a different, just like with power cords.

I say if you think cables make a difference AND you claim you can hear a difference between 320kbps and FLAC with your system, you should test out the second claim using the ABX Comparator, find out you can't tell a difference even between 192kbps VBR and FLAC, then conclude that all your audio thoughts are invalid

That's a good idea. Wish more people did that instead of saying things that aren't true. This forum is like placebo-fi, everyone thinks they hear things that aren't there, it's amusing.

It does drive business so I guess it's not all bad.

I have made several Senn cables and power cables. To me different wire sounds different. Plugs sound different in my cables. Longer is better to get a different sound. To me a 10 ft Senn cable will sound better than a 4 foot Senn cable. Silver Plated Copper sounds different than Copper. 24 AWG sounds different than 19 AWG. Canare 1/4 plugs sound different the a Furutech plug. To me the trick is to find what sounds great to me without spending a boatload of cash finding out what I like with my gear. Oh yeah, with power cables I like 14 AWG better than 10 AWG. The 10 AWG sounds a little slow to me on my gear. 12 AWG is OK with the cables I have been using. Then you got the metel used in the plugs. Some prefer Gold for Solid state gear and some like Silver for tube gear. Then you have Platinum, Palladium and Rhodium thrown in the mix.
