bad idea for jitter or other reasons?
If you are talking about S/PDIF coaxial (RCA) and it is really good cable, I do not see any problem.
Although you do appear to have a cumulative length from Masterlink to Apogee of 20 feet. Is this correct?
If you do not need separate access to these unit's individual connections, why not just leave them hard wired in the rack?
Either way, so long as the cable is good and appropriate, I think you should be OK.
TosLink optical is a different matter and I would not recommend such lengths.
