"Kimber's purchase of some kind of $100K analyzer that was able to detect electrical differences between various insulation colors."

I have no idea what Kimber did. However, I once had the opportunity to test long runs of twisted pair with a Hewlett-Packard cable analyzer that was one of only three in the world. The one I used was recalled from Japan for my company to use. The bottom line is that there is a measurable difference in the characteristics of different insulation colors, or at least the wire they encompass. Note that we were measuring runs of a thousand feet and longer, and the differences were very small. A few feet of wire in an amplifier would show no measurable or audible difference.
