This is actually an interesting question, about a choice lots of us have to make: USB or FireWire on your DAC.

It doesn't really matter which interface you choose, as long as the implementation of the interface is good. Some DACs have only one, and obviously it had better be good if you're going to choose it. Some DACs (rare ones) may have both, but in this case both may not be equally good.

You have to either listen before you buy, or be prepared to resell if you're not happy.

The thing you do want to avoid is having both the DAC and external storage on the same bus. In my case that means a FireWire hard drive and a USB DAC. Some systems use double USB busses and put the drive on one and the DAC on the other. Some put the HD on USB and the DAC on Firewire.
