Does anyone know which DAC Apple uses in their Lightning to 30-pin Dock connector? Any idea if the cheap China copies have different, lower quality DACs?

Actual pricing on Wolfson DACs is hard to find, but competitive DACs from well known producers run about $1.50.

Fine performance, no surprises, no audible coloration.
