Well after 3 weeks of waiting, my Lightning to 30 Pin Adapter arrived and all I can say is what a disappointment. It works with all my docks and even in my car. No problem there but that's about all the benefit. It doesn't fit correctly. It's a bit loose and doesn't sit flush with any of my previous Apple cables. This I can live with. The worst is to come. Sound quality is awful. Through 4 separate systems and the car too. I can't quite explain. It's not muffled, more like the sound has been filtered. There's no top and the bass feels like it's coming through in blocks. Switching between the adapter and a 3.5 jack connector is completely different. Even with the same file on a different iphone (3GS), the sound quality is hugely degraded on the iphone 5. It's unusable apart from allowing me to use older apple cables for charging. I'd be better just returning it and buying the cheaper micro usb to lightning connector as that's about as much use as I'll get out of the 30 pin adapter. Would this be due to it being digital only instead of analogue? Should I expect this or is anyone having the same experience? I'd love to get your feedback and know I'm not alone. I hope it's a dud and a one off. I'm imagining it's sadly not.
