    I don't want to build, rather I would like to buy. Which cable should I look for from a vendor to get a low microphonic effect? I very much dislike the thump and clatter that results from cable movement.

    Most good quality cables will be free from microphonics. Canare and Mogami are good brands of raw cable - but many brands of finished cables are not marked.

    Find a cable with Neutrik ends; any maker that uses Neutrik will use good cable.

    Unfortunately not true. Many expensive cables have surprisingly bad handling noise. It's as though the manufacturers think it's not important.
    Yes, those are reliable choices.
