The modded hiface might be too heavy to plug directly into the DAC. However, I see no reason to not try it with the regular hiface which is very light. The usb extender will probably do far less harm to the signal than the digital cable. Too bad I don't have the stock hiface to try it.
By the way, there is this new converter (http://www.audiophilleo.com/audiophilleo1.aspx )that offers that same type of connector and they suggest plugging their usb converter directly into the DAC.
No cable is probably better than the "best" cable.
As for me, I will try to get my hands on a very short BNC to BNC cable (around 10 cm) and see if there is an improvement over the 1.3m Oyaide I have. Now that I am using a usb extender I don't need anymore that extra length. If anybody knows a place where to buy a very short (less than a foot) BNC to BNC cable, let me know.
