RE: "high quality" 75 ohm SPDIF cable. Can you recommend one?

I have a Schiit Bifrost (in fact, another is on its way--should be here tomorrow--so I'll have one for the main system, and one for the computer system). With the computer, the only option is USB (I'm thinking a "hiFace" USB/SPDIF converter won't be worth the bother for this primarily portable/casual listening computer speaker system). I have a DH labs Silver Sonic USB cable for the computer's Bifrost (1.5 meters):

For my main system however, I do want the best 75 ohm SPDIF cable I can get for it, but here too, I have my limits on what I'm willing to spend ($100 or less, thereabouts). Currently, I have two SPDIF digital cables:

1) Belden 1694A cable with Canare RCA connectors (on the system currently). This one was from Blue Jeans Cable (1.5 meters):

2) A "home brew" cable made from Canare L-4CFB cable, and Canare RCA connectors (haven't yet tried this one). This one is also 1.5 meters.

I've also been told that the DH Labs "D-75" cable is very good, so I might be interested enough to give it a try. This one is also pretty much at the limit of what I want to spend on a digital SPDIF cable. Does anyone here have experience with this particular cable?
