Did you check out the grounds? One is grounded on engine block stater and battery terminal.

I did say I replaced the cables. What else could it be?

Well just for shits N giggles try starting the car up while someone taps on the starter. Old trick that works. If it does you know its the pinion gear isn't engaging properly. If it still clicks and nothing happens while your tapping not banging the starter try putting the car in gear and rock it back and forth. Idk some reason it works too.
