Heh... While his message may not have been worded terribly well, I think I understand what he's trying to say. In my limited experience, certain cables I've used have sounded a bit "muffled" (Monster comes to mind) whereas Bayou and others don't seem to have this sound characteristic. I *think* what Nighttrain is trying to say is that some cables damp certain frequency ranges to change the sound (ie. damping the higher frequencies to give the illusion of having more bass.) Though I'm not sure of the physics of this, so I don't know if it is realistically possible or not. I also can't give any quantifiable evidence of the sound differences I hear between some cables as I mentioned above, so take it with a grain of salt.
