Ok, couldn't get what you meant.

Sorry for the brevity, yes HazMatt, that is indeed what I meant. But fair enough, it does say reversible in their presentation.

So how does this port differ to USB, Firewire and Thunderbolt. What's the speeds and feeds.

I know the audio industry is filled with a TON of DAC solutions that typically use USB and run it through a high end DAC to a higher end audio system for the audiophiles out there. I wonder what the advantages are, if any, with this port vs USB, etc.

Cannot possibly know. Only USB 2 compatibility is afforded right now.
