I know alot of people use iPad 1-3 and just run it as an AUX setup off a standard HU with USB. I'm trying to figure out if with this new iPad 4 with the lightning connector vs standard 30 pin connector if people are having any luck?
Will using an adapter from the lightning connector to a 30 pin degrade the sound quality at all? I will be running an iPad 4 and just a signal/line converter(ie RF 3sixty.3, audison bit ten, etc etc) and an iStreamer to convert the iPad signal to a set of RCAs. I'm wanting to eliminate the factory HU and not run an aftermarket HU at all because I do not think the aftermarket HU will charge the iPad 4 at the same time.
Am I just crazy and should just run a HU as a processor for the iPad signal and just have my fabricator build my dash and just have an aftermarket HU hidden somewhere?
