I participated in the same listening sessions as @alwayslearning but did not get to compare the Sigma and SOtM directly. I really liked what I heard with the SOtM in my system and was pretty well set to buy one. My plans changed once the demo Sigma cables he mentioned landed here. The Sigma USB delivered a mind-blowing improvement over my Alpha USB - and that improvement gained further with the Sigma Ethernet added to the mix.

I would have a hard time saying that one of these cables is “more musical” than the other. The eye of the beholder becomes a factor as we each have our own preferences as how we like our music served up. Both cables struck me as “musical”, though they each provided a different perspective on the experience. I went with the Sigma but would have likely opted for the SOtM had I planned to stick with my Alpha USB.
That's a quite an indictment of the SOtM USB cable. There is no comparison of the Alpha to the Sigma USB in my system. I auditioned both before keeping the Sigma. I read somewhere on the forum where it was said that the Alpha is 90% of the Sigma. That must be the new math. :)

No way is the Alpha USB 90% of the Sigma USB. I had read that too. My expectations were completely blown away. The Sigma USB is a very special cable. I can’t wait to get mine. I placed my order last week but it‘ll be a few weeks before Shunyata can get one out to me.
