Apple Lightning Dock Adapter - Abandon all hope, all ye who enter - Page 2

Wow, I didn't realize the Lightning cord for the corded adapter was so fat from all the extra goods inside.  I definitely messed up getting the one piece dock adapters though.  They don't fit into most cases (had to dremel my case) whereas the Lightning plug on the corded adapter would be fine...plus in a car you have a huge thing coming off of the bottom of the phone for an LOD so it's hard to fit it into the top part of a center console.

That's a ton of wires (bundles, alone, with shields, and otherwise) inside that cable.

Here's my attempt, at taking apart the one piece adapter, took a little over an hour and is still fully working.

The Chinese 30 adapters do not work with an LOD, will only sync and charge.

It appears that they omitted the part that did the audio decoding in the Chinese one, kind of a bad deal...it's just their Lightning plug that they use in the USB cables, wired to the 30 pin dock connector.  That is hilarious.

Does anyone know what the DAC is inside the Apple 5s dock?  Maybe the same as the 30pin adapter?
