Correct Sir, your USB A to Mini B should be a male to male adaptor. Such examples are: http://dx.com/p/usb-male-to-mini-usb-male-adapter-32709#.UtwEPxDTnuo or http://dx.com/p/genuine-apple-usb-male-type-a-to-mini-usb-5-pin-adapter-white-31658#.UtwErBDTnuo if you can find that last one. Hope that helps ^_^

When I plug the lightning to usb camera adapter into my iphone 5 I get the message, "this accessory is not supported by iphone".

So, is it the fact that I didn't upgrade to ios 7, or that my phone is jailbroken?

Think I answered my own question. It works on my wife's iPhone that is upgraded to the latest iOS.

Just out of interest. Do you really find that there is any gain from swapping the DAC? I thought that the iPhone DAC is well regarded.

I'll be receiving my fiio e07k here today and I'm trying to understand all of this. If I use a lightning to micro USB and plug that into my e07k will I be able to bypass the amp AND DAC?

I don't know if they make a direct lightning to micro USB cable, but if you have IOS 7.x and use the Lightning to USB Camera Adapter and then a male-to-male USB to mini B adapter (not micro), then you will bypass the DAC (which I believe, only supports up to 48kbps).  I do notice that I still have access to my volume control on the iphone.  So you can modify the iphone volume out and the volume of the fiio unit.  I just set my iphone volume pretty high, then I do the rest with the fiio unit.

You can get beyond 44.1 now with this trick, at least with the CEntrance M8 and FLACPlayer (96 to even 192).

Would using a Female usb A to mini B (http://www.overstock.com/Electronics/USB-2.0-A-Female-to-Mini-5-pin-Type-B-Male-Adapter/5218003/product.html) + the stock lightning to usb male A cable work as well?

It's height is similar to iphone 5

DAC supports idevices including iphone 5.

Best of all it's more affordable then Cypher, go dap etc.

Www.cayin.cn

Interesting, only $200. Since my e18 hasn't impressed me, I might go for that. edit: works great with ios devices, not so much computers...(at all).

Anyone know anything about the Go-Dap DD Socket1?

 

Can't find it anywhere, would like to know if it supports pc and if it acts as an amp too? Rather than just a dac.

A200P sounds very close to what I'm looking for, except it sounds like the internals are crap.

 

Looks like it supports lightning to micro usb which would allow me to use my ipod 5 with it. Secondly, it looks like it supports PC audio.

 

Unfortunately, after all of this, one the reviews mentioned that the A200p contains the same DAC as the $30 lightning to 30-pin adapter? That's ridiculous.
