There shouldn't be anything even remotely "unacceptable" about this.
Standard USB cable. Connections are all the way in.
I find it unacceptable for an electronic device to have exposed contacts.
Let alone audio equipment that might be affected by EMI.
There are plenty of standard USB sockets from electronics mfg. that could be used where this wouldn't happen.
A cable should go completely into the socket. Period. Like your AC plug.
Might have to root around for a USB cable that goes all the way in, but that's hard because I don't have the specifications for the USB socket on the Modi.
