Request: USB Audio Direct Output

I assume the Spectrum will have no trouble sending a USB audio signal through from devices connected with the B or C upstream connections to audio outputs.
However, for multiple devices, that would require switching the A/B cable to the device currently playing audio. It would be great if the Spectrum was able to directly detect USB audio output accessories and have the option of sending audio signals from the HDMI/DP inputs to them.

Sadly, this feature will not be possible on Spectrum. The downstream USB ports are only connected to the USB-C and USB-B inputs, and do not have the additional processing capacity to determine the type of incoming USB signal (all perceived as data to the downstream ports) or assign an input to a single specific downstream port.

Yes. Spectrum essentially has a built-in USB hub to support this function.
