RE: Digital cable lengths? (both S/PDIF and USB)

While an optimum 1.5m length is not available as a readymade option, the deep discounted AudioQuest VSD-5 100% PSS Perfect Surface Silver digital coaxial cable is an outstanding 75 Ohm pure silver cable for the price (2m - $49.99). If one can DIY, the product is also available per the foot in bulk which allows the length of one's choice, and the selection of higher performance connectors if desired. I use a DIY VSD-5 for my DVD player as well as a stellar DIY composite video cable for my digital CATV terminal. While the stock AudioQuest rca connector is rather mundane, at least it's a compression type termination for potentially better 75 Ohm impedance characteristics for digital applications.
