    Outstanding! Hadn't seen these on the web site over the weekend, so it must have just gone live today.

    Shunyata is following on the heels of the release their amazing Alpha and Sigma digital USB cables.

    What with the recent announcement of the new line of power distributors and Venom NR-V10 and NR-V12 power cables, Shunyata Research is really hitting on all cylinders of late.

    Finally had a chance to listen to the Sigma Ethernet cables. My brother and I did a comparo of the AQ Diamond and the Sigma in my system.

    As good as the Diamond is, our assessment is that the Sigma is a bit more dynamic, better control of the bottom end, with more instrument definition, more extension and finesse at the top. The Diamond (which I own) was a little warm in comparison and maybe a little slower.

    Both are excellent cables but I give the edge to the Sigma; at least in my system.

    Have heard the Wireworld cables in a different system with very good results but never had the opportunity to try them in mine.

    No, I did not. Mike and Puma Cat have and may be able to comment on the similarities and differences.

    I ordered a 10 meter Sigma ethernet. I remain to be convinced, no harm in trying.

    I auditioned Sigma and kept it. Used to use AQ Diamond < Vodka < Cinnamon. Now it becomes Sigma < Diamond < Vodka. Music sounds more refined now.

    From what I can tell the Audioquest Diamond is considerably more expensive than Shunyata Sigma ethernet.

    I bought a 10 meter. I think AQ almost double the Shunyata price at that length.

    Well my Shunyata Research Sigma Ethernet arrived today thanks again Mike. I have it in the box still, it pretty wild looking in person.Going to wait a few days before installing it. I want the Lumin T2 to burn in as well as get my ears accustomed to the new sound. I want to see if this cable is as good as they say.

    My dealer cancelled the order. Said he couldn't do it for the price quoted. Took a month to get my deposit back.
