Question Wire length question

Assuming quality coax wire and clean connectors, what is the maximum run-length for unbalanced digital (S/PDIF) wires, or the maximum length others have gotten away with? I can't seem to find a definative answer anywhere. Anyone?

Thanks, Paul

25 feet here between Roland XV5080 and an 888/24 Digi converter. No problems.
