As a direct reply to "ArchivalAudio": The USBPre 2's A/D converters are always in 24-bit mode; unlike earlier "USBPre" models, there is no setting for 16-bit quantization.

--best regards

music > microphones > a recorder of some sort

DSatz, thank you! this does answer my question and as I suspected since I couldn't figure out (or want) to switch to 16bit.
Merry Christmas!

That cable above is a 3.0 and looks goofy to me.. don’t get that one.

You want 2.0 USB A to USB B

USBPre2..  best box ever IMO.
Good grab!!

I like Anker.
My USB batteries are 13,000 mAh and are all pretty old, but still work great.
The ones that I use only have the standard USB-A outputs.
It seems all the newer ones have USB-A and USB-C outputs and are “smarter” technology.

Anker sells on eBay too under the name ‘ankerdirect’.

I would assume that any 5v USB battery pack that puts out 1A or more would work just as good.. but Anker has served me well.
