Who says cables don't make a difference?

Funny, after all these years, people still say things like "you wasted all that money on cables". 
There are still those who believe cables don't make a difference.
I once did marketing for a cable line I consider to be about the best-Stealth Audio Cables. 
One CES, I walked the rooms with the designer/owner, Serguei Timachev. He carried a pair of his then new Indra interconnects. Going from room to room he asked the room runners to replace their source to preamp IC with the Indra. There was not one that was not completely flabbergasted and said that the Indras blew away what they were using. That was the skyrocketing of Indra and Stealth. The Indra became one of the best reviewed cables ever.
Serguei now makes the Sakra-an IC that blows away the Indra!
I don't understand why some still do not value cables as much as I.
I've heard differences in cables, but it is rare that I hear differences worth the asking price.

MC, you mean they run the cables, from display, to display?

That would be pretty cool. It’s not that I wouldn’t spend good money on good cables. It’s more like the cables I run on the gear I use, work, pretty darn good. I’m a couple months out on PAINT, and another month until we get to removing and recovering the flooring, in one of the rooms here.

Covid 19, my new heart stents, the old body is slowing down..LOL
Yup Monday had a damn heart attack behind a blood clot. That from a
nasty bruise, on my inner thy. I wasn’t on thinners...Opps! That hurt...
Boiling oil, comes to mind....

Cables are no less or more important, than every other component. I just choose to hold off, until the rooms (two) are a whole lot closer..

I think, the final touches should be cables, and if I’m paying attention to the gear and the sound coming from the rooms as the project progresses.. That’s when I might take a leap.. The issue for me, is there are VERY few people I can compare my gear to...4 pairs maybe in the US..of the Elixirs, and not one close to the modded up units, I have...

It’s a very different, type of speaker. A hybrid linesourse, no super fancy cable required, they never have.
Solid silver, Good copper, tough to beat. Add anything newer, either boils my ears...or kills them.

I been using a tuning box on my cables..works great.. OXO,
has a turret board I can tune the heck out of the cables in the runs.

I’d like to go through a few cables and really check out the newer stuff.. One thing at a time.

But 6K, the ol Doctor would have to bring some pretty urgent news, like
you got 6 months to live, and dying wont cost TOO much.
If I had a year, I’d be holding off, 6 months. Then bury me with them. ;-)

@erik_squires +1! 

Of COURSE cables make a difference, always did - the question is HOW MUCH?!? 
$6000? - $12000??
Even when occupying the right income group, is seriously beyond my comprehension.
Even if they'd be made of solid Au - and assembled by Aeolian virgins, in a higher earthly orbit 💫 - or some such. 🤑

Your explanation really sounds jolly much off the wall. Seriously. 

Best be holding my tongue now... 🤫

Cables "assembled by Aeolian virgins"?              If I'm paying big money, I want cables made by someone with much experience!!
Morrow A3 interconnect for example are good and makes a difference for the price for me....

But like just say someone else here, cables rarely makes the difference their big price sometimes promise....

I dont know why this subject is not only controversial but all around all time....

Embedding rightly an audio system exceed even most of the times the impact of upgrading the speakers or the dac or the amplifier and sometimes exceed even the changes of these three E.C. ... I am an old rambler but it seems almost nobody knows that in my experience here, then they argue endlessly about cables.... :)
