    Can you use the Lightning USB adapter below to connect to an outboard DAC?
    In other words, does iPhone 5 transmit digital audio data through this adapter?
    This is what I plan to do:
    iPhone 5> USB Adapter> USB cable > DAC input

    Not sure on the USB dongle. The lightning to 30 pin does tho

    No idea but I wouldn't assume anything as this adapter is only intended to connect a camera to your device for transferring photos.

    Why not just use a lighting to USB cable which will do the job? Use a USB extension if you need more length or buy one of the longer ones. Griffin makes a 3 meter cable:

    No what I heard the 30 pin adapter decodes digital and converts into analogue signal. I want a pure digital signal out of my iphone 5
