Question: Does airport express support USB audio devices?

Is it possible to plug a USB audio output device (USB speakers/amp) into the USB port on an Airport Express and play music via airplay that way?

Thanks. Actually this does work on my iphone and ipad -- you have to use the "camera kit" lightning-to-USB adapter to physically make the connection --, but I could certainly believe there's a different software stack powering an iOS device vs an airport express.

The iOS device would be performing as an AirPlay "server," whereas, the Express would be performing as an AirPlay "speaker." To related, by very different functions required for AirPlay to work properly. AirPlay is an IP protocol suite used for streaming audio over a wireless or wired network.
