Fair enough, I stand corrected. Even as I hit send, I more or less knew I was wrong and should have said simply "uncompressed audio". Still, every time you convert to a lossy format, audio data is lost, and we don't have much to work with from the get-go.

But you are NOT passing analog audio down the USB cable. You're
passing digital PCM to a USB sound device built into the
radio. Semantics are important in this discussion, and my point
still stands, there are no analog signals around a DV Dongle, just an
AMBE coded bitstream and a PCM bitstream (plus commands to the dongle
and status/responses back).
