  2. Best sound resolution from an iPad to a HU via USB? Can you do 24/96?

    General Car Audio Discussion
    Hello People, What's the best quality of music you could get out of an iPad? I managed to get 24/96 Apple Loos-less files onto an iPad (Using copytrans, iTunes won't let you copy more than 24/48 - but does recognize the 24/96 files once you've got them on the device). I plug my iPad to the...

    Technical & Advanced Car Audio Discussion
    How do you connect an iPad to an iPod dock on a car stereo and still charge it while it's in use? A Lightning to 30-pin adapter will handle the signals, but the iPad draws too much juice for an iPod charging circuit. I would guess what's needed would be a branching cable with a Lightning...
