How do I connect an Ipad air with retina display and lightning connector / USB A MALE to a DAC with USB B 4 pin (B4) connector?

I am trying to connect the iPad with lightning connector to a USB (B4) connector on a DAC.
What is the best way to do this?

(1) an adapter to the USB B4 pin on the DAC that will accept the type A male USB on the lightning cable?

(2) A coupler to connect the type A male USB on the lightning cable to an A Male to B4 Male cable

I have read that some have advise using an Apple Lightning to USB Camera Adapter (MD821ZM/A)

However there is no indication in the specs that states this would support audio. And I have seen in some forums / reviews that it will not. Will this cable support audio to the DAC?

I attempted to include links to examples of the cables and adapters but they were determined to be "inappropriate text".
