Why aren't DACs using USB Type C as input?

Probably because there is zero benefit and the USB B connectors are cheaper. USB Audio doesn’t even need USB3 speeds.

The only reason I can think of to go USB C is for USB Power Delivery. But as this forum has pointed out time and again, no self-respecting audiofool would ever allow their DAC to be powered via USB PD from their computer. Because electrical noise. Or whatever other myth they believe makes an audible difference if they aren’t using an overpriced linear power supply and cables…
