It all depends

Everything is relative. Some cables reduce noise and distortion more than others. And the same cable can be made to further reduce noise and distortion, by raising it off the floor thus reducing effects of vibration and static electric fields. Geometry of the cable, purity of the conductor, type of metal, type of dielectric, quality and type of terminations/connectors, cryogenic treatment and of course our old friend direction of the conductor 🔛, so in large measure it's a system engineering thing.
