I want to use my iPad to set up a home head-fi system, but if it can't be charged while playing, that's just too annoying.
You don't, unless the DAC can charge it like the iDo. Some hubs might, but I don't really recall any of the reports on hubs workin with DACs actually charging the iPad, they just power the DAC.
In any case do you really need continuous recharging while the iPad is working? When I use my iPad as a music server it only drains about 1% to 2%, but I don't keep the display running. I just run it when I select an album then it goes dark on its own or I hit the button on top to kill it.
