Those prices are only valid in the USA. I do not live there.

Has anyone actually tried a Tascam, if possible de DR-05, and tried to connect a DAC to the USB socket, and see what happens?

Checked the DR-05 manual.  USB functionality is power in and file storage/transfer to a host computer only.

Quote
USB jack
Connector: Mini-B type
Format: USB 2.0 HIGH SPEED mass storage class

It does not include the functionality to operate as a USB audio interface when connected to a USB host computer, which is a less demanding function than acting as USB host itself. 

[edit- I don't think ANY Tascam portable recorders incorporate USB interface or host functions.  All of them use USB for storage/file-access only, and in a few instances external power input.]

The Tascam DR-05 can't operate as a USB interface, but the DR-05x can (along with the 07x and 40x). The 05x can likely be found for $100 or less.
