Millions of us use our Apple devices to listen to music every day — through earbuds or headphones. But lots of home theater receivers and in-dash car stereos include a "made for iPod/iPhone/iPad" USB input that lets you move your music beyond your head and into your car or living room. All you need to make it happen is the right cable. If you own an Apple device with the Lightning™ dock connector, AudioQuest's Cinnamon adapter cable is an outstanding high-quality cable choice. With Cinnamon, music sounds noticeably clearer and more detailed than with the standard cables we've tried.
Cinnamon USB uses solid copper conductors, and each wire is silver-plated — the silver layer is a bit thicker than on AQ's Forest cable — which benefits high-frequency applications like audio. Signals at these frequencies travel almost exclusively on the surface of the conductor. Because the surface of each conductor is made of high-purity silver, the cable's performance is close to that of a solid silver cable, but priced much closer to a solid copper cable.
Any solid material adjacent to a conductor actually becomes part of an imperfect circuit. Wire insulation absorbs energy (loss), and some of this energy is stored and then later released as distortion. Cinnamon USB uses air-filled foamed-polyethylene insulation to minimize this type of distortion.

You get what you pay for! This cable was incredible! Connected this from my iPhone to my DAC. I heard sounds that I never heard before and the clarity was impressive. Imagaing was fluid and there is no distortion whatsoever. If you want to experience the next level when it comes to audio, and you have the need for this type of cable, trust me, you will not be disappointed!
