Default Looking for a way to switch SPDIF

I'm looking for a proper way to switch between four different digital sources (CD/PC/DVD/MD). My DAC has only go one spdif input so I would like what is the right way to do it. Is it possible to just put a fourway passive switch in between, would relays do better or do I need some kind of digital switching. At the moment I'm switching cables everytime but I get i little anoyed by that.

I like the idea of relays the best because it's the easiest way to implement. Do you know any good relays for it ? I was thinking about reedrelais because of the short straight signal path and airsealed enclosure.

I don't know if there are any special relais for 75 ohm switching ?
