Re: iPod extension cable source

It should, all the new devices do audio over the USB port in the dock connector, and no longer use the analog audio pins.

Don't they use additional wires though. I believe the devices with the 30 pin connector passed analog audio over a couple pair of pins. The new connector on the new products eliminated this. That is why the lightning connector to 30 pin adapter is so expensive -- it has to have a DAC built-in. I thought the 30 pin devices had the ability to pass audio either as analog or digital whereas the new lightning only passes digital.

It's all very confusing!

I had a professional audio interface that used analog audio pins to get audio in/out of an iPhone 3G. When I upgraded to 4S, it was rendered obsolete because the new phones only supported USB audio. What a mess!
