Audioquest made me a pair, specify the grade of wire you want.

Better to just buy Neutrik adapters and use your favorite cable.
The connection will be as good as right on your gear.
They come in any combination you want. See link.
I always find the aversion to adapters interesting; even if they are of much higher quality than the connectors the cable maker is likely to put on your custom cables.
Keep in mind that all gear has adapters. Inside your gear is bare wire. So does you gear have bare wire to RCA adapters, or does it have bare wire to XLR adapters ??
The only custom cable I ever had was a RCA to BNC digital cable. I got it free with a used CD player that was only BNC for digital. The seller figured he would not be able to resell the cable anyway (which is my point about custom cables).
Yes, I have a set from Audioquest, running from my Apogee mini-dac xlr outputs to the rca inputs on my Acurus DIA100 integrated amp. It seems like it was stock, not custom, as it came in a standard audioquest box. I got it from SoundCity on west 45th st in NYC. Be sure you ask for the right orientation (male/female) on both ends as per YOUR components. The first set I got was incorrect at the XLR side I believe.
As has been mentioned already most cable manufacturers will make them for you... and you won't get any real benefit from doing this beyond just using straight RCA cables... and no don't use adapters unless you HAVE to. The more connections you make the worse it gets.
That said, I have two such cables for my surround channels where the processor ends are RCA. The cables are Ultimate Cables silver series.
