A cable that actually rolls off the highs would be quite a thing.
I would be genuinely interested to see evidence of such a feat. You can empirically test this. I devised a protocol to find out how different the frequency responses of different cables are. I was unable to find any two cables that were notably not flat, but the possibility does exist.
Would you be so kind as to do a test on your cables.
The protocol is as follows. Connect the analog outs from any CD player to the RCA inputs on an ADC connected to your computer (I would be happy to lend you my Behringer) and record the same sample (I use Audacity) (I also have a CD of test samples) 10 times , crop to a uniform length, and align each sample to within +/- 1/100,000 of a second this part is a bit labourious, then generate a spectrum analyis for each repetition, once you have ten such spectra for each cable import them into Excel and average the 10 samples for each cable. this will let you see the differences at each frequency , I use 2048 FFT sampling for this which generates about 929 data points between 6hz and 20004hz.
You can then plot the levels against frequency in excel and get a neat graph showing the differences. So if one cable has a roll off compared to the other it will show up clearly, the best sample to choose is a white noise sample which is a pseudo random mix of all audible frequencies, this is on my sample CD.
