USB is a complex protocol, so if the touch "sees" the DAC, then the DAC
*definitely* "sees" the touch. The question then most likely is about
whether the touch sends the DAC a data format that it understands and
can play. EDO can send up to 192k/24b data.

Ignore the 5V thing, it's nothing to do with that. If USB works at all
then there's 5V on the wire.
