So I have an iPhone 5, and the Lightning connector is proving troublesome in finding a portable amp that will work with it. So I had a quick question. Would it be better to run the audio through the amp using a 3.5 mm to 30-pin LOD, and then through the Apple 30-pin to Lightning adapter, or would it be better to use this... http://forzaaudioworks.com/en/product.php?id_product=54 ...and run it through a DAC? I am sure the latter would provide better audio, but I am worried about battery life, and I don't want to run audio through the iPhone's headphone jack. I guess my real question is whether or not the 30-pin to Lightning converter would negatively affect the audio in any significant way?
Thank you for any responses. I appreciate it.
