I'm probably onboard for this drop. But I am still not happy about the USB powering. It will almost certainly hooked up in the vicinity of my PC and my other audio gear. So I'll have to pick a funny color USB cable to avoid plugging the damn thing into a live USB hub. Do they make dumb USB A-B cables? The kind which transfer voltage but not data, like you use to charge strangers phones.

any custom cable maker could make one for you. this was more common before things needed the data connection to determine the proper charging current and voltage. I have a A>B that is just data that was made for my ASUS Essence One.

I'd be more inclined to DIY one myself than pay for anything custom. USB connectors can be had from Digikey and similar electronic components suppliers.

You can use an iFi iPower if USB noise is a major concern

iFi also makes the iPurifier 3: an inline USB audio conditioner for putting between one's USB audio source and DAC. It might be pricey, but its sound benefits can be heard.
