I am also curious if this adaptor will work on any iphone/itouch/ipod? If so, the whole world of Apple DAP will change. All I can say is Wow, hold on. The camera kit is coming in a week or two and will know. I have an ipad and I can find out real fast.

"Create Digital Music reports that the iPad may be able to support the use of USB audio interfaces via the Camera Connection Kit offered as an accessory by Apple and set to begin shipping later this month. Such a move would make the iPad much more appealing to music professionals looking for a portable device to interface with their equipment.

According to second-hand sources and a post to a public mailing list, the upcoming Apple iPad accessory adapter for cameras, the iPad Camera Connection Kit, will support audio interfaces that are compatible with the USB Audio Class. I don't have official confirmation from Apple, and the adapter itself appears not to be shipping until later this month, so file this as "likely, but unconfirmed." But it's one to watch, and comes as a surprise to me. (Generally, camera accessory kits aren't a way of providing audio expansion.)"
Sounds good to me, I just wish the iPad had a 240GB HDD. This is really no different than a USB out (or optical) on my MacBook really.

GR9, whats that?

Just curious, is the iPad capable of playing 24/96? I cannot seem to play them from my iPod Classic (don't know if there is a way). Looking forward to getting the iPad 3G version, in about a month.

Apparently someone has succesfully used it with a USB headset:

Dear Aunt TUAW: Can I use a USB keyboard or headset with my iPad?

It is a pretty exciting possibility, and would make the iPad head-fi approved.

Well, surely ALO are working on something cute for digital output/amping. The Rx is amazing - pack that badboy with some sort of battery powered DAC (optical and USB) and hello! Disclaimer: I have no idea what ALO or GR9 are working on, but I can speculate.
