It's been said a few times already but March is the closest estimate given so far. :D
120pcs Mont Blanc will arrive Micca in U.S next week.
Great news! If I buy the Apple lightning to 30-pin adapter, then connect from the E12 to 30-pin, have you confirmed it will work with full function and SQ as if it was direct E12 to lightning. Also, do you have any plans to produce E12 to lightning adapter as I believe Venturecraft offers with the GoDapX?
I may be misunderstanding your question, but the E12 doesn't have a DAC, so you would be using the phone's DAC.
Thank you for pointing that out, I was not aware. In that case, it sounds like the ideal solution is a direct E12 to lightning cable. I don't know if the Venturecraft cable is compatible with the E12.
I think that in that case you're using the iPhone 5 DAC and just getting an LOD (analog output) and not a digital output.
Are you sure that's a DAC in that cable?
That doesn't make any sense!
Could be a charge control chip or an authentication chip?
Why put a DAC in the cable if the iPhone already has a DAC in it?
