First of all, congrats in finally incorporating USB-C into your product lines. Over the past two years, I have been holding off on the purchase of new studio equipment - suspecting the industry was going to eventually advance in this direction, helping to 'further' reduce this traditional bottleneck in system dataflow. I'm surprised that it has taken so long. Anyway, are we talking about USB-C V3.1, or dare I hope that Presonus went all out, with something resembling V3.2 Gen 2×2 - SuperSpeed+, new 20 Gbit/s (2.5 GB/s) data rate over 2 lanes using 128b/132b encoding?  I am curious, because the current advertising talks about 24bit/192kHz sample rates (which alone, is awesome) but it doesn't define the particular 'generation' of (ya it's great -to- OMG screaming) USB-C dataflow options, currently available. Either way.., it's all good, but more info would be helpful in this regard, for those of us who are trying to maximize your USB-C (Gen 1 or 2) gear with all high end motherboard related decisions of the day :)

The Studio Series interfaces use the USB 2.0 protocol over the USB-C type connector. 

We provide both a USB-A to USB-C and USB-C to USB-C cable in the box. 

Thank you for the feature request. 

The request to develop a USB 3.2 interface has been received, thank you.
