Thanks Axel. How long is your Cabledyne cable. As I said, Blue Jeans Belden cable which is also 110 ohm worked fine with shorter lengths.  If longer length Cabledyne works, then I might think about buying it since it's got very good feedback here.
It’s only 1.5m long. Cabledyne offer a no risk 40 day satisfaction guarantee, so you could get one and try it, but this might not be convenient if you live outside the U.S.A.

Thanks Axel. I might give it a try. I live in CA, so it's not inconvenient at all.

I have excellent results with belden cables
I’m using blue jeans speaker cable. I tried their digital (3feet ) with my 800 and it was fine. The crystal cable sounded better though

BJC will make you RCA->XLR using Belden 1800F. Which is what I'm using (3feet and now 15 feet). Although I had them re-terminate the 15 feet to XLR on both sides after getting the transformer. CableDyne looks very good for the price with seven 9s OCC silver conductor.

For what it is worth, I tried many different manufacturers and different impedances from 90 to 110Ohm: Crystal Cable Micro and Reference, DH Labs (by the way these guys are the most helpful manufacturer I ever met), Sweetwater, Siltechs. Nothing worked over 3 meters without a transformer. Asked Audio Prana for theirs but they did not want to build a long one.
