The Apogee Wide-eye aes/ebu (XLR) cable is very good and can be found new for under $150 and used for under $50. Providing your dac has a balanced input you may be pleasantly surprised.

Two cables I like at that price level are the VH Audio cryo Pulsar and the Atlas Compass. I would also like to plug Joe Mazzaglia's cables. He has a digital interconnect now and if it is as good value as his interconnects it is a real winner.
Do make sure you get a cable that is 1.5m long. The length won't make a lot of difference to the price but in most systems it makes a very positive difference to the coherence of the music.
