The Cypher Labs Theorem 720 Headphone Amp USB DAC or the AlgoRhythm Solo -dB DAC communicate with Apple products using Apple’s proprietary iPod Accessory Protocol (iAP) over USB.

It is easy to connect your Cypher Labs devices to Apple products.

  1. 1. Align the connection on the bottom of the iPod with the multi-pin metal connector located on the included synch to USB cable.
  2. 2. Do not force the iPod connection or you may damage the multi-pin connector and damage your device.
  3. 3. The USB end attaches to the AlgoRhythm Solo –dB or AlgoRhythm Solo -R.
  4. 4. To remove the iPod, grasp the iPod and pull on the cable head.

The Cypher Labs AlgoRhythm Solo -dB and Theorem 720 DAC® have the best DAC are already built with one of the best DACs available so connecting to an external DAC could result in a degraded sound quality.

The Theorem 720 DAC® includes a headphone amp; AlgoRhythm Solo -dB requires an external headphone or home stereo amp. See full comparison below.

Do you have an Android device such as a Samsung?
