Although the dielectric is foamed PE rather than Teflon, I liked the specs of the Supra DAC-XLR digital cable until I noticed that the conductor is stranded rather than solid core, but that's just my peccadillo. The Supra XLR connector features copper contacts and a Noryl insulator with a lower dielectric constant than the nylon insulator of a typical pro audio XLR connector, so it's possibly a good-sounding connector for the purpose. If you can buy the Supra DAC-XLR digital balanced interconnect with right of return, I would be curious to know what you think of it. The shortest length available is 1 meter according the Supra Cables website.
Supra's seemingly discontinued Supra Cat7+ FRHF Network Patch Cable features 22 AWG solid core bare copper conductors with foamed PE dielectric, and I find it to sound excellent when connected between my modem/router and iMac computer for streaming audio purposes; much better than typical stranded generic and Belkin Ethernet cables, IME. The newer Supra Ethernet cable features stranded conductors, but I have no experience of it.
