Connecting external DAC with ipad 8th gen?


Ipad 8th gen to external DAC - possible?

With apple lossless music out, I get 3 options in the audio settings. AAC 256, ALAC 24/48 and hi-res lossless 24/192.

Iam streaming via Airplay to Cambridge Audio CXN V2 and digital out to RME ADI 2 external DAC. Airplay streaming is limited to 16/44.

Is it possible to connect the ipad directly to the extenal DAC? I believe I would have to get a lightning to USB adapter, but no clue as to the ipads usb audio implementation, Rme dac drivers for ipad etc.

Thanks in advance. Stay safe. Cheers.
