Power cable Advice...
                                    Time for a rewind (or two).           Anyone needing a rationale for experimenting with new cables in their system and/or feeling dissuaded by the Church of Denyin'tology's antiquated electrical doctrines: ta... 
Most impactful for playing soft
@milog -      One can preprogram a number of freq response ("loudness") curves, with one of these devices, for those special times:        https://www.minidsp.com/applications/dsp-basics/system-equalization  
Most impactful for playing soft
@secretguy -            A receiver with a loudness control :)                                  OR: DSP       (with which to program a little boost, at times*)   But: let's not deprive the fact resistant of their beloved chasing-of-the-tail (... 
Most impactful for playing soft
     Here's why, at lower SPLs, your system's lower freqs sound weak: https://www.teachmeaudio.com/recording/sound-reproduction/fletcher-munson-curves      Most older receivers had a 'LOUDNESS' function that boosted lows and highs to compensate ... 
Cable Break In for the Naysayers
@hce1-  I await arrival of the day when we can live and let live without derision and ridicule.                                                     You missed it!              Critical thinkers are now to be considered, "enemies of the state."  
Yes, cables do make a difference -- regardless of price...

Upgraded my cables and they transformed my system!!!
OP:      KUDOS on actually stepping out, trying new cables and enjoying the rewards.      What would it take for a Naysayer Doctrine adherent to convince you, that what you're experiencing is a result of defective hearing, some deceptive bias, o... 
Premium Power Cable Survey: The Results Are IN
     No one can tell you whether/how your system, room and/or ears will respond to some new addition.   There are simply too many variables.      LIKEWISE: no one can possibly know whether a new addition (ie: some kind of disc, crystal, fuse, int...
