Loosing connection to DAC

When I turn on my PreAmp (Parasound P6) with built in DAC, then I go to my computer and launch Roon, it doesn’t show the Audio Device. If I reboot the Pi, or disconnect and reconnect the USB cable it will show up. Rebooting the Pi is the easiest of the 2 since getting to the back of the system is not the easiest thing to do.

I don’t think this would be a problem with a DAC that was powered on all the time. Leaving the Parasound on all the time is not an option, because it turns the amplifiers on/off via 12v trigger.

Thoughts?
