Pro1000 digital interconnect - acceptable length
I am looking at replacing my speaker cables and thought that before I do this (issues with length required for right speaker of >15ft limits what I can afford to purchase), to look at shorter speaker cables by placing amps closer to speakers.  

Would 15ft cable between the Pro's be acceptable?  If I can do this then my options on quality speaker cables increases substantially.

You might want to take a look at these threads:

and this (and following) posts:

TL;DR: a long link cable increases the chances of the link not working properly, especially at higher sample rates.  The result probably depends on the specific cable you plan to use.

I have used the transformer method discussed in the thread above. Worked quite well for me and allowed me to use 4' speaker cables.
This is the transformer I used.
