    Belden 1694A from Blue Jeans cable. Clean, neutral, and most importantly spec'd correctly for digital transmission. Been using it for years with no desire to replace it.

    https://www.bluejeanscable.com/store/digital-audio/index.htm

    A whopping $18.95 for a 3ft length.

    I've used the Belden 1694 for interconnects for audio and video. No problems very versatile cable.

    Blackcat veloce is a great budget digital coax.

    I'm still using an Audio Metallurgy GA-0 coax digital, and haven't found anything that bests it yet. Been in the system for roughly 10 years too. Also have an MIT AVT digital coax around here somewhere, and that one , while also a good budget cable, can't keep up with the GA-0.

    That's one of the cables I reviewed for the three way digital coax cable shootout review that I'm working on. It went up against Douglas Connection Bravo and AQ Carbon.

    I bet you can guess the results.

    The DH Labs D-75 is another budget ($65/mtr) over-performer.

    I couldn't find a 75, but the 750 is $90 for .6 and $130 for one meter fyi...while it may well offer great bang for the buck, I'm not sure if I would call it budget...

    i've got the black cat silverstar mk1 coming that replaced the veloce and if it is good i might consider the silverstar mk2 that runs $325 for 1m.
