MOTU 828 mkII, TRS Cables change audio?

My dear audio gear expert friends. I just got my audio card from repair, and they sent me a completely new one :) So I have 2 x MOTU 828 MKII sound cards. One connected to a Mac and the other to a PC. I have 2 x 8 TRS to 8 TRS cables (snakes). I admit that I got the absolute cheapest - Hosa. When I hear the audio on the second audio card it sounds very different, less lively, less details and less spectrum. For instance, if I would play the default ES2 synth sound, I loose the nauseating high frequency sound in it that pans from right to left. What is the cause of the difference in your opinion? Do cheaper cables change the sound?? or is it the sound cards?Reply
