I see you mentioned the Cypher Labs AlgoRhythm Solo, the "CLAS" as some call it.
Do check out my blog on the topic of the Lightning connector at http://cypherlabs.com/blog/post/apple-lighting-what-it-means-for-audiophiles
Come see us at RMAF 2012!!

Thanks for that, David - I raised the issue of the lightning connector with ALO's Ken Ball in the Sponsors forum and his suggestion mirrors yours - no surprises, I guess, but I cant blame Ken and many other manufacturers for feeling ticked off with Apple's approach to this change. Hardcore audiophiles aside, I cant believe they have obsoleted so many docks - bizarre behaviour from the company which once prided itself on its user community. Shades of their decision to stop dropping optical drives from various Mac computers.
