    anyone know of any 3rd party lightning to 30 pin adapters that still work with audio being played through it? it seems a lot of the cheap chinese ones will charge and sync fine, but won't feed audio through docks/external mics etc

    I don't mind the price of the official apple one, but i need at least 3 of them (same with the stupid $20-30$ cables) for my car, work, rehearsal studio etc and don't want to have to keep shifting them around everywhere i need them.

    Shouldn't be surprising considering that D2A conversion is required.

    Not to mention that the DAC included in any non-official lightning cable is going to sound awful.

    That post was specifically about the iTrip being mono. I haven't heard of anyone else claiming that it is mono only.
