I guess it depends on the definition of "very nice" but I've never had a problem with Monoprice:

My view is that unlike analog cables, digital cables are more alike than they are different. Audioquest makes optical cables that are generally well made at several price points. You may want to look at the Forest line for something that is constructed well at a good price. They should be available at most high end audio stores. Perhaps FNAC carries them, I really don't know for certain though.

What he said.  With analog signals cheap cables can degrade the signal.  The whole idea behind digital anything (camera, video, audio) is that you can retransmit it without losing anything.  Think about watching a DVD movie... everything looks fine, or it's all screwed up.  You don't have to worry about getting a minor degradation in signal.  That said, different cables might be more reliable than others meaning you can move them around a lot, bend them back and forth etc, before they break.  Anyway, you can get a perfectly good cable for $10 or 20 (or Euros). A $100 cable won't sound any better.
