'Twas brillig, and Jeremy Visser at 11/01/10 10:26 did gyre and gimble:

Please read the following:
This is the difference between default in the sense of "use it always"
and default in the sense of "use if it you don't have any other
> So, I need a solution that does either or both of the following:

With input I agree, but the "logic" is not always correct considering
the memory of PA to restore to where you last used that application (for
output streams at least) as covered in the above link.
> Any ideas on how to get to the bottom of this?
Well it should just be a matter of either:
a) Remove the stream restore database for that user. (rm -f
~/.pulse/*stream-volumes*) and set the USB as default prior to any apps
b) Move the stream once in pavucontrol to the correct input device and
it will be remembered thereafter.
