Interconnects, speaker wire, power cords. Ask the Cable Guys.

Yes, and "Belief cables made a difference".. 50 years in audio and eventually yes I came to that conclusion

I agree with your first premise.

Also...
The first real Hell YES wire for me was in a powercord. The first thing which I clearly heard a difference which was repeatable. (ADDED: and the ONLY REASON I bought the aftermarket cord was it was cheaper than I could have made one for myself!)

I began to notice slight differences in the IC I already owned when I bought a pile of $5,000 a pop components, and an expensive power conditioner.

I 'took a leap' and decided to try a new wire, $350 a pair. They clearly were better than my old stuff. I bought several of them. And dumped my old wires.(that was two years ago)
Then I had a bit of cash, and after two years of thinking about buying the expensive cable pair, I jumped.

IMO 'belief' is not the right word . The gradual realization, from experience, that an IC can make a difference in the sound is what I would call it.
"Belief' is so fraught with negative connotations, In my mind it means blind clinging to some philosophy, instead of thinking about reality.
So asking me if I 'believed'.. no.
