They all sound different. Not of course if you simply load an audio  
file and play it back. But as soon as you merge many audio streams  
together (as in mixing), work with panning on tracks or apply effects  
to finalize the sound. Even though it's all mathematics the different  
applications still do apply those algorithms in different ways.

But you were talking about "sound quality" in your post and that  
implies that you think that some might be "better", which is  
difficult to say because the differences in delivered sound are very  
small. Professional studios do not chose software for "sound  
quality", since all these applications sound excellent, but rather  
for ergonomics and suggested workflow ("professional" means people  
get paid and then workflow has to be fast or someone goes out of  
business). And for some it also matters which applications their  
clients and partners are using.
