Cardas Clear Light equivalents

So I use Cardas Clear Lights XLRs for all my interconnects. Recently with my new rack arrangement of my gear the  NAD M51 will need just over 7 ft of cable run. I simply can't afford CCL at that length.  I don't really use the NAD too much but I would like to find an XLR cable in the $350+/- range with the "qualities" of the CCL. 

I have Thiel CS 2.4's so bright cables are a no no, but so are cables that roll the top off. I,be tried Cardas Gold and it was a bit too veiled. So I would like a neutral cable.
