So I pondered my choices from $19-199. I went for a Fender because it was longer and it looked decently put together for $25. Then when I read the packaging I was elated to find out the high quality construction provided superior transparency, as well as "Tone-Master Precision-formulated nitrogen-injected foamed polythylen dielectric material enables a stronger signal, which results in better midrange and high-frequency response". I'm almost tempted to go back and see what I'm missing out on for $200.
See, that's why you buy Performance cables. I don't want my cables just lying around letting stuff flow through them, I want them to perform, dammit.

probably their marketing department rather than technical team is responsible for that...
re: cables. shielding & build quality are mostly what you should be looking/paying for. and cables that are excellent at both don't cost that much...
Where it gets a bit hazy with Opamp rolling, is that circuits are usually optimised for the opamps that they are shipped with. So if you insert a different opamp there probably won't be that much of a difference due to the rest of the build, leaving usually two outcomes performing slightly better, or largely worse. In that way its a bit similar to cable magic where usually the outcomes are the same or worse, (worse being a difference people interpret as better because they were told it was an improvement)
