Really about the only way to connect an iPhone 5 to a FiiO E11 is with the 3.5mm male to 3.5mm male cable.
 The Essence STX & STX II and SB-ZxR all come with a better DAC chip and headphone amplifier, then the SB-Z. (Technically with the STX, STX II & ZxR, their DACs are virtually identical and they all use the same TI 6120A2 headphone amplifier chip). Personally, I would be looking for a used Essence STX (I prefer Asus Xonar cards). The SB-Z for it's price is a good value and can easily drive 250-Ohm headphones. The Schhit Modi (optical) DAC with the Schhit Magni makes a good...

 You might consider holding off until your can budget for replacing the four B652 and the CCS-33B.I believe it's considered best to have all 5 speakers matching. Also Yamaha A/V receivers in the RX-V6XX series and RX-A7XX series have better amplification.
