I am curious if the unused USB port has power on it to run a hub with which to power the iPad from?

Any ideas on this?

As this amp is so intrinsically tied to an iDevice this seems to me, IMHO, to be a no brainier.

What say you Amplifi users??

The USB port is a standard B plug, meaning that it's at the peripheral end of the USB connection. I think that this means no, you won't be able to charge a device from it. 


My guess is that the plan is to connect the Amplifi to a computer. This would allow tone editing from a mac or pc. I expect they'll release an android app soon enough.


I hope they also be planning to implement audio-over-usb, so the Amplifi could be used as an audio interface (and monitor). That would be very cool.
