What's going on with posting ? Just written a post (above) and it's all dissappeared ? Grrrrrr.
Version 2 :
Any news on a release date on the new adaptor ?
Was wondering if it will improve sound on my Teac SR80i dock in the kitchen.
I am loving the 5 but this is really rubbish by Apple - surely it should be out by now ?
Was even thinking of buying a third party one from Fleabay but am worried they are of poor quality.
Any one bought one yet ?
"Lightningly slow". Now that's a new one. I'll use that to teach my kids what an oxymoron is

Rodhas Gibson said on this thread that he already had two of the adapters and they worked perfectly: http://www.whathifi.com/forum/apple-iphone/iphone-5?page=16#comment-2770943

Ones a dock and the other one is getting bad reviews ?
No, Rodhas said that he had an adapter from Apple and that it worked perfectly. He also has a dock, which he linked to, which he is also happy with. I have not been sent my third party adapter yet, and they are getting bad reviews because they have been cancelling orders. It sounds like no third party adpaters have been released yet because of problems with the chip (as BigBoss anticipated in the other thread).
Lightningly - famous quote from Ratatouille.

OK fair enough.
Perhaps you chaps at What Hi Fi might have some news on this ? (Launch date / what's happening)
I seem to recall reading somewhere that the adapters are arriving after 25th October, so hopefully next week.

Hi Look, as Ben mentioned,I have 2 Lightning adapters direct from apple took 2 days to arrive and that was 2 weeks ago.Can't see your problem there. I have also just bought a 3rd party Dock to sync and charge etc [made in China]but purchased from Amazon again 3day delivery,[see my link in the other post]. I have been testing this for the last few days and it is great.
