Can anyone point me to any objective testing that has been done on this subject? Thanks.

As I said, I did the search and didn't find any specific tests, which you've confirmed. Why is it not legitimate to ask if such testing has been done if I do the search and find none? There's so much talk about the improvement cables make, for someone new to this site, it would be logical that there would be some objective data to show it. I asked because I'm considering a cable upgrade (just for some decreased length and in order to have a spare) and wanted to see some details...something more convincing than a subjective comment about sound improvement without data to support it.
Anyway, I didn't mean to start anything. I'd just like to know.
