Is the consensus that the headphone out is the way forward for those of us that don't have the Cypher or similar? Thanks for the reply BTW. smily_headphones1.gif

That's what it sounds like to me. The 5 was my first and will be my last iPhone if this is the best we can do. And no way am I spending that much on the Cypher.

Unfortunately this is the only way as far as I know.

 

If only the camera connection kit for the iPad would work with the iPhone 5 then there was another way. But as it is now the CLAS or other products like that is the only way to extract digital bits from the iPhone 5.

Apple seem determined to kick us audio fans in the nuts!

is there any sound quality loss with iPhone 5 when using New Lightning to 30 Pin Adaptor for iPhone 5 to my LOD cable ?

I think the sound becomes a little boring when using the Lightning to 30 pin adapter. Some of the sparkling and definition is gone and I prefer to use my old 5G Classic if I am not using the CLAS in between.

So if I have a iPhone 5 and this Fred amp:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/200908741875?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1439.l2649

Should I just connect it with 3,5 to 3,5 audio cable or should I buy a Lightning to 30 pin /  then a 30 pin to 3,5 audio?

Any advice to get the best possible sound from it?
