No signature worth mentioning...
This should work well: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Optical-Cable-Toslink-1M/dp/B00077DC5Q/ref=sr_1_16?ie=UTF8&qid=1332844447&sr=8-16
Or for a little more this: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Duronic-F008-NickelSpec-Resolution-Connector/dp/B003YSOKIS/ref=sr_1_15?ie=UTF8&qid=1332844563&sr=8-15

Copy and paste links not working on iphone again but should work ok if you paste into your browser.
This one seems to be well liked...
... but I haven't had a lot of experience in optical digital cables. I'm still using the one supplied with an old Beresford DAC. It works perfectly.
Marantz M-CR603 + AirPlay • Rega R3 loudspeakers • iPhone 5 • iMac • Apple Airport Extreme 802.11n • Apple iPad Mini • Panasonic TX-L32D25B • Sony BDP-S390 • Ruark Audio R1 Deluxe • Humax HDR-Fox T2
As short a length as possible and one that doesnt kink, so a nice stiff sheath to keep the bend radius to a minimum.
I'm going to try a short 1m lead again (£2.80 from Amazon) as the current optical cables I have are 3m long. Not sure it's the sole reason why I prefer the sounds over USB, but if it gets it closer then the reduction in mains interference will be welcome.
