Fried Chicken Boy:
Great resource, Ted; thanks for putting this together.  I can tell you that the original Edirol R-09 (not HR) uses the same "B" plug size, has the same center pin (+) polarity and requires the same 3v voltage.  Don't know if it can be safely run off 5v USB like the HR model but the DC adapter that came with it outputs around 3.3-3.4v, FWIW.

Early mixpre's had same connector as MP-2.  Then they switched to the hirose, not sure why or when

The Sound Devices USBPre2 will accept either a USB-2  or USB-3 plug "B" style.  The unit has a USB-3 style plug on it because it is more robust.  Unit can be powered via USB Jack with 5V {red +5v, black -5v (ground)} Green and white wires are for data
