Interesting adamaley. I would put forward the Lush USB cable. Same price as the Curious, which I also have been testing. But I seem to prefer the Lush. I am running Zingali horns and the Aries Cerat Kassandra DAC, so lots of detail and dynamics already. The Curious is a bit bright / cold possibly. The Lush has great body and sounds more like vinyl if that is possible, that sort of direction. However it losses little if anything in decay and micro details.
