  • The adapter is both a DAC and amp, since the Lightning port does not contain analog line out pins like the 30-pin connector. DACs are ubiquitous and the quality will be a non-issue. However it's currently unknown whether the amp is of the same quality as the one in the iPhone 6S, which could drive even low impedance IEMs like the SE846 properly.
