Apologies for my laziness. 
I did start to read the Burn in revisited thread but after 7 pages I hadn’t read anything about interconnects. 

Is Burn In a thing that applies to cables or just devices with capacitors?

Can’t see why it should apply to cables other than when you turn it on each time?
Is the pursuit High Fidelity a sign of mental illness??
I think so....

To sum up simply, everything in the audio chain and associated power supply exhibits burn in.

Happy listening
Just listen, if it sounds good to you, enjoy it.

It would seem that all components in the reproduction chain have inductance and capacitance (whether significant or negligible) and anything mechanical like a vinyl stylus or transducer diaphragms/suspensions have elastic qualities. All of this stuff doesn't achieve a stable and consistent output straight away. The mechanical stuff needs some use whilst the electronic/electrical aspects need power-on time to reach a stabilised output. So even cables I would assume. I could believe that even small differences in stored charge in cables could affect the transmission of electromagnetic waves (signals) through it. Not that I believe that I could personally hear a difference. I'm more sensitive to changes in spatial presentation of audio (phase shifts) than I have ever been with detecting changes in dB SPL of certain frequencies. The listener needs to have the cognitive ability to discern what they're hearing too and for the most part, I don't personally have sufficient cognitive ability. Although sometimes the 'differences' are merely placebo. Even an attentive listener like myself has surely been guilty of hearing placebo differences on several occasions so I'm always careful to not have too much trust in my own judgement. I guess, as with a lot of things, it is all too easy to convince yourself that you are right, even when you are not.
