well... i'm not good at english.

i heared apple lightning is not support line out for amp (like a e11)

so, if i have 30pin line out cable and buy lightning to 30pin adapter, can i use a line out?

or can i only use 3.5pi out??

thx!

You need to buy the adaptor to use the old 30-pin connector, or just use the headphone output.

It seems that the new adapter will also contain a DAC.. whilst DAC chips are quite cheap, I am uncertain of the sound quality of a $30 DAC in a dock connector. I'll have to test when my new iPod touch 5g arrives, although I have heard that lightning works with standard USB audio so that could be an option if you own a separate USB DAC.

yes you have to get the 30 pin adapter and it works, another head fier has tried it out

although i dont think it would be great for portable use since it sticks out too much, and very high chance to snap it off since the lightning plug is small and thin, even though the build quality is good
