But, frankly, this project happened already! I've already tested and confirmed, that using ALSA output from smplayer (front-end for mplayer) - or, for the matter, mplayer itself or any other front-end that makes use of audio output possibilities of mplayer - works like a charm for this purpose.

Of course, integrating it with standard Maemo system-wide sound (via pulseaudio) would be best - and, using MAFW& friends for decoding some things could save *some* batter power (although, it's mostly a myth, the difference is negligible, in practice) - but, frankly, if you're using USB DAC, the current for decoding is the least important part of your battery-drainage problems.

Anyway, USB audio output (as per title) works OK.
