All I have to say is that I highly doubt that Monster Cable, KimberKable, Cardas, Analysis Plus, Sraightwire, and all those other major companies made their millions just on myths and psychoacoustics.
Another example (audio related) -- Bose. They are highly overpriced and often crappy, so wouldn't you say they've made their millions on myths propagated by advertising?
BTW, there's more to cables than sound... capacitance issues, shielding, overall quality of the cable and connectors, good looks, etc. And of course, people who have an expensive system often want expensive cables to feel like everything matches price-wise and quality-wise -- absolutely nothing wrong with that. The only area subject to debate is sound, and that's where I have my doubts.
