I plan on buying the new iPad mini when it is released this month. Then I plan on using my current iPad Retina as a source to my pre-amp. This means I will use Apple Radio to discover new music to buy. Since Apple Radio streams lossy music, and I doubt the iPad DAC is the greatest in the world, I want to make sure I do not do any more damage to the music by hooking it up with a cheapo cable.
My question is what is a good cable to connect the iPad to the pre? I will be plugging the USB power into my Triton.
