Peavey AmpKit LiNK HD

Originally announced in January of last year, and expected to have shipped in the second quarter of 2012, the Peavey AmpKit LiNK HD fell off the radar for a while. A new video just popped up on the Peavey YouTube channel!

This interface looks great, offering a digital connection to your apps through the 30-pin connector instead of the bleed-prone headphone jack solutions. At $100 it comes in at the same price as IK Multimedia's iRig HD, but offers substantially more I/O allowing for headphone and line-out from the box as well.

Additionally, it will even charge your iPad/iPhone/iTouch when connected to the optional AC adapter! That is a great advantage for AmpKit LiNK HD over similar USB interfaces.

This is quite a boon for people who want to record both to and from the iPad on a budget. Seriously, after a lot of recording from that noisy headphone jack I am desperate for anything else! If they can ever get this thing released it might be worth serious consideration as a low-cost high-quality interface.

Update: Ampkit just tweeted me that it is shipping now!

This looks much better than the headphone jack Ampkit Link they've had out for a while. I bought that version, but there's lots of noise, crosstalk, and the build quality on mine was crap.

With the new HD, it looks like it's comparable to the Apogee Jam (which I love), but there's also the AC adapter and a Thunderbolt cable.... Hmmm... I have to find a way to justify another piece of hardware.
