In anticipation of the Transporter, I will be using the Transporter digital out into my DCC2 SE and since the DCC2 SE has a clock out, I could connect it to the Transporter clock in.

So I need a BNC to BNC cable. What kind of cable? Anything will do? Or is there a certain type of wiring I need for the clock sync?

Thanks

I don't think there are too many weird options here. I assume you just
want some sort of BNC-terminated coax which is as close as possible to
75-ohm end-to-end.

A safe commodity clock cable would be the Apogee one:

....or I betcha you'd do fine at Blue Jeans:

Thank you Jeff! I figure even audiophiles cannot go crazy on a clock cable! =)

If you figure that, I think you assume too much...

....but clock cables (at least, marketed as such) are enough of a niche
market in the Land of Audiophilia that I don't think there's been too
much direct attention to the matter, and I think you have the luxury of
fewer choices.

But if one wanted to get obsessive-compulsive... a number of the
available single-ended digital-audio cables are available terminated
with BNCs.

Actually, I notice some emmlabs equipment in your list. Is there a
clock-cable recommendation from Meitner? Those guys are no slouches.

EMM is introducing their own line of cables. So I am sure that is what they will be recommending...
