    I have a Audioquest Carbon but it's .75m so it's slightly shorter then 1m. If that length will work for you I'll give you a good deal on it. PM me.
    If you also want to further your USB upgrade I also have a Audioquest Jitterbug. Fantastic little device.
    Here are links for you to check them out

    I have a 1m Wireworld Ultraviolet 8 I would let go for $65 shipped, @Clipdat

    Thanks for the offers guys. I'm going to hold out for now in hopes of finding something higher end that hopefully better aligns with the level of gear I'm pairing it up with.

    There seems to be a few very happy Lamp owners that use the Callisto from Final Touch Audio. Unfortunately, not much info or reviews on this side of the pond
    Well within your price range, too

    Whaddya know. A review from Positive Feedback of the WireWorld Platinum loom just came out.

    Here’s what the reviewer said (in part) comparing the Platinum USB to the Final Touch Audio Callisto USB

    “ I noticed that when compared with my Callisto USB cable, the Wireworld was noticeably less fun in the bass region. The Callisto USB cable pulls out the bottom end, and may even add a slight mid bass boost. I always suspected this was true, but in back to back comparison with the Wireworld, it became quite obvious. Now it is important to point out that I don't think the Wireworld USB cable is bass shy. I think the Wireworld USB cable is significantly more transparent and is presenting the information to the M Scaler completely uncolored. I personally prefer the FTAs boosted bass presentation, but the Wireworld USB is incredibly transparent and accurate.”

    Very interesting. It actually makes me lean toward the Wireworld.

    Thanks for sharing the link and the excerpt. Well written review.

    All except 2 of my Ethernet cables are Wireworld. Other are Cinnamon and all are real good.

    I haven't actually hooked up the Curious USB cable yet. I've just been using a Pangea Premier SE digital coax cable between my streaming transport and DAC.

    With review gear constantly coming in and going out, it's tricky to find an opportunity to make a change to my system without inadvertently skewing my perspective/baseline. I will hopefully check it out soon though.

    Sorry I can't be of more help.
