Digital xlr or xlr?

I'm new to the amazing and satisfying word of high(er) end audio component I've just purchased a pre amp/amp combination's (Marantz av8300,and Marantz MM8300 amp) which include both unbalanced and balanced outputs to the amp. I'd like to use the XLR outputs, which I understand are the optimal cable for this purpose The problem I have is I'm finding digital XLR, and XLR. What is the difference and what should I buy?

  1. For balanced outputs you want to just use XLR cables to transmit signal
  2. Digital XLR cable have more sheilding to decreases interferense where critical application is required such as live performances or recoding studio.
