I'm pretty confident A is Diva.

The thinner synth A might sometimes be easier to fit into a mix and it has a more precise, HD, cleaner, forcussed sound to my ears.... But I'm surprised to read you think it sounds more 'alive', as I thought B sounds wilder, more organic, richer. B has an extra je ne sais quai of magic. In my opinion.

If B is Diva, I'd be very happily surprised.

On some of the examples I preferred A, because it was cleaner and sharper focussed.
It totally depends on the context of the mix as to which would be 'better'.
Yeah i got all the same things there too. I felt a bit more emotion from B but it was easier to 'see' A due to less width (listening on dt770 pros)
