The reason is that according to cable companies and reviews of how a cable sounds, all different types of cable construction and materials use are capable of sounding better than other types. Which is better sounding? Silver or copper, multi strand or solid core, braided or not? There is no consistency. That casts doubt on whether cable construction accounts for sound quality differences.

I make you laugh then. The reason why I do that is because cable companies present pseudoscience to suggest audible differences, but no real science that shows a real audible difference. So I will ask that question just to confirm whether or not is actually audible. Graphs and readings have been produced to evidence a difference in cables, but on closer examination the difference has been so far below what is audible that the difference is between two degrees of inaudibility.
