My portable rig is iPod Touch 5th-->Lightning to 30 pin adapter-->silver LOD-->RSA Protector-->balanced OCC silver cables-->SE846. I use 3M's Scotch fasteners to connect the amp to the iPod. Very low profile and with a balanced amp and silver cables the sound is 3D and sublime.
Not sure if you know: you're using the iPod as a transport for the DAC in the lightning to 30 pin adapter because the lightning port is digital only so to get the analog line out for the 30 pin, they put a DAC chip in the adapter. Glad to hear it sounds good though.
