FiiO LT-LT1 USB Type C to Lightning Data Cable

If you want to connect a D/A converter to an Apple iPhone or an Apple iPad, you need a special adapter cable. This is exactly what the new FiiO LT-LT1 USB Type C to Lightning Data Cable is supposed to provide.

FiiO LT-LT1 USB Type C to Lightning Data Cable, the Chinese company FiiO Electronics Technology Co. Ltd. addresses all those who own a mobile device from the Apple Corporation and want to use it in connection with a high-quality audio system such as a portable D/A converter or D/A converter and headphone amplifier.

As is well known, Apple iPhones and iPads do not have “standard interfaces” and the company from Cuppertino relies on its own interface, the so-called Lightning connector.

USB C for the Lightning connector from Apple

If you want to connect to an Apple iPhone or Apple iPad, for example, a solution for higher quality music playback, you have to rely on an adapter. This is precisely the task of the new FiiO LT-LT1 USB Type C to Lightning Data Cable.

Of course, the Chinese specialist for personal audio devices, FiiO Electronics Technologie Co. Ltd., primarily has its own products in mind, such as the FiiO BTR3K, FiiO BTR5, FiiO Q3 and FiiO Q5s-TC systems, all of which can be connected to a smartphone or tablet with Google Android without any problems, but not to an Apple iPhone or Apple iPad. At least not without an adapter like this now available solution.

The “Problem Solver” – FiiO LT-LT1 USB Type C to Lightning Data Cable

The FiiO LT-LT1 USB Type C to Lightning Data Cable is supposed to ensure playback of audio data with up to 24 bit and 192 kHz and thus best quality for Apple iPad and Apple iPhone in connection with the mentioned solutions. However, the manufacturer points out that the power consumption of the USB devices must not exceed 200 mA. It is also emphasised that the FiiO LT-LT1 USB Type C to Lightning Data Cable should not be used to charge the Apple device.

High-quality plugs, high-quality cable

Of course, there are already various solutions that enable such a connection, but many of them are not really designed to be of very high quality and are thus ultimately only suitable for everyday use to a limited extent.

FiiO Electronics Technology Co. Ltd. promises a particularly robust design for the new FiiO LT-LT1 USB Type C to Lightning Data Cable, which should guarantee reliable operation for years.

The connectors are made of aluminium and the cable is said to have a particularly durable cotton jacket.

In addition, the cable has a practical length of about 10 cm, so that on the one hand there is sufficient “play” for flexible combination with an external D/A converter or headphone amplifier, but on the other hand the cable is not too long to be impractical to handle on the road.

Getting to the point

It is these practical solutions that elegantly round off the range from FiiO Electronics Technology Co. Ltd. as a proven specialist for personal audio devices. After all, if you are using a D/A converter or headphone amplifier to get the best possible sound quality from an Apple iPhone or Apple iPad, you also want to use the best possible matching cable that guarantees a reliable connection even during intensive use on the move.
