I have not been able to get audio through the lightning cable (I was able to get sound from an iphone4 and the old cable). From what I think I understand is that I shouldn't be able to because the cable is digital only. My understanding is that the lightning to 30 pin adapter will be able to provide sound because of a built in DAC. This contradicts the quote below. Can someone confirm? BTW I have the adapter on order

No, if you currently use an Apple "white cable" to connect your iPhone to your vehicle. In this case, all you need is the new Apple Lightning cable, included with your iPhone 5. (See our member's DIY guide for creating a cradle and integrating the lightning cable)
