Unfortunately, no. Even a Line-Out Dock connector wouldn't do much. Only iDevice approved DACs can bypass the internal DAC inside an iDevice (iPod, iPhone, iPad). The only other way to bypass the internal DAC is to use the Pure i-20
dock and set it up with an external DAC. However, this eliminates any possible chance of portability.
If portability is what you want, check out ALO Audio
as their DACs are iDevice approved. However, if you are on a tight budget, these may not appeal to you.
