Apple Lightning to Micro USB
« on: December 09, 2018, 03:49:13 PM »
Hi Guys, new to the forum. I just purchased a Opus#11 DAC/Amp and I am wondering if there are any decent Lightning to Micro USB cables available in SA or is the normal Apple Camera cable good enough?

There are not many alternatives to the Apple Camera cable, except Chinese equivalents.   You could look on eBay

Thanks for the reply, you would think there would be some local supply seeing how how the DAC's etc. are available?

Cable Matters looks like a company with most options available through Amazon, hope they have something for you.

Tangled Accessories in CT have a female USB to micro USB cable and also lightning to USB.   That will achieve the connection you want

Doubt it will work. 

The lightning to USB section needs electronics inside if you are not using it with a computer. 

Ie the Camera Connection Kit or a
Clone.  The cck is not just a passive cable.
I have misplaced my Micro to lightning cck clone.  Darn.  Used it once for iOS to AK DAP for
Streaming tidal.  Worked well on an SMSL DAC too.   

If you must have it now and local availability than you are probably looking at Apple cck plus male
usb to micro usb. 

It would be possible to male  the micro to A cable very short like even 20mm cable by cutting A and the cable short and fitting a new A plug.   Easy.  Soldering micro is not as easy if you can find them.
