OK, it's time to accessorize my GO 1000 - even though it's not here yet!
When it arrives, I intend to keep it cool by running it on this heat sink:
Here's the heat sink, under a CEntrance DACport LX:
The DACport LX runs a lot cooler this way, and I'm sure the GO will, too.
In this photo, I'm also using an Anker battery pack to supply 5VDC power (up to 2 Amps), getting only data from the laptop's USB port - no noise! I'll be doing the same with the GO 1000.

For the GO, with this cable, you would also need one of these (USB Female A To USB Mini Female B 5 Pin Adapter). Ordered.
I also have this cable, but it's a lot longer:
For the GO, with this cable, you would also need one of these or one of these (if you prefer blue to pink) USB type B female to type A Female adapters.
If you like the idea of eliminating potential noise from your laptop power, but don't want to mess with applying tape to the fourth pin of one of a USB A connector, as shown above, I highly recommend getting this TeraDak Teralink U9VA PSU, that includes an awesome cable for extracting only data from one USB port and only power from another. For only $45.00, this is a steal. And frankly, it's a noise-free 5V PSU. I use it to power my Resonessence Concero when I don't feel like messing with my battery packs. It's a great desktop regulated power supply for both 9V and 5V DC. There's an adjustment screw inside that's preset to 8.5V output for the 9V jack, but you can fine-tune it to exactly what you want.
This cable does the splitting of data and power for you - without having to put tape over the fourth pin of one connector - it's included with the TeraDak Teralink PSU. (Worth $45 by itself, in my opinion.)
For the GO, with this TeraDak cable, you would also need one of these or one of these (if you prefer blue to pink) USB type B female to type A Female adapters.
