It works with iDevice's. I have a similar setup using my iphone 5s -->CCK (lightning to camera kit from apple) --> USB A to Mini B adapter --> FiiO e07k (andes). Works like a charm bypassing the internal DAC of the iDevice.
Edit: it works. I believe you can find the lightning camera connector on amazon now from different brands for under $15 now.

If I buy the CCK and use the Andes with a iPod Classic 7th Generation, will it bypass it's built in DAC?
I'll still purchase the CCK + iPod Classic 7th Gen to test and see if it bypasses the internal DAC.
iPhone 5 -> Apple Lightning to USB Adapter CCK -> USB to Mini USB Cable -> FiiO E07k Andes (USB Charging off) -> headphones.
Or will it not work?
So is it a problem with the E17? Read a lot of people failed with this set up even with USB Charging turned off.
And with this USB adapter that you suggested, doesn't it mean I can't bend the cables and carry my iphone and E07k as one piece? Haha.
He's referring about straight lightning to usb
Not the whole CCK route.
Also, Cayin C6 is lightning compatible, you can use a lightning to usb cable, and it bypasses the internal dac in the iPhone.
No, you still can. Because the CCK is a cable, it's not one piece.
Would look like this
I realize this isn't the same thing, but thing of the black cord as the CCK and the lightning adapter as the usb to micro usb adapter.
I wouldn't know about the Fiio E17, never owned it, it's older, but they're extremely similar. I'd assume it'd still work though.
