I am a professional recording engineer, musician and writer for MIX magazine, and I'm "a bit behind the curve" when it comes to iOS interface devices. I've been searching for a DAC for iOS devices that meets the following criteria: Digital OUT to an outboard DAC (i.e. 30-pin to USB) from an iPad, iPad MINI, iPhone 5 or 30-pin iPod, onboard "reference level" headphone amp, simultaneous Digital Pass Thru (via COAX, OPTICAL or preferably AES/EBU, to be sent to another converter/device), and simultaneous LINE LEVEL outputs, (bypassing the HP amp) so the signal can be monitored on headphones and powered speakers at the same time. Also, battery operation is a must for portable, in-the-field production. The only device I have found that remotely meets this criteria is the FOSTEX HP-P1. Does anybody have any experience with this, and do you have any recommendations? Thanks for the help !!!
