After digitization I couldn't distinguish the two recordings, whereas in my headphone system the two cable types make a distinct difference (to my ears).

Yes, I suspect that any distortion introduced by the recording masks (or even overwhelms) differences in cable behavior.

If it's alright with you, I'm going to repost this data in my "I want to believe thread"

I'm collecting data there.

Thanks

No problem – I feel flattered.

Yes, and I would postulate the same for the characteristics of cables used in recordings. That's why the argument that if cables really make a difference then the non-audiophile cables used for the recording have already irreparably contaminated the sound could be unfounded.
