Not, quite what you are after, but it ios one of the more reasonable places I have found the PTFE coted cables in the UK. Have a look at the page below from the IPL site.

Hi,

Who has it for sure is http://www.habia.se/. There is an office in Britain as well. Otherwise Farnell sells FPTE isolated 26 AWG (0.4 mm) as Tefzel wire-wrapping wire on 100m rolls.

Cheers

Why don't you go a step further (towards natural sound?) and stay away from teflon too?

Are you sure that tefzel is the same as PTFE? I had the impression that it wasn´t the same?

I don't know what is best, I was rather hoping someone else would suggest something! Teflon is often said to sound bright, hard and false.

Personally, I love my speaker cable, which uses polyethylene insulation.

How about a paper dialectric? I've been wondering how this might be achieved...
