we are getting close, thanks to you man. seriously, thank you.
2a. I run the EX5 supplied USB B cable to this usb c apple multi port (usb a, hdmi, usb c) dongle. (see pic).
With the Schiit, I ran a RCA cable with a 3.5mm direct into the 3.5mm stereo in the macbook.
Now plug that into your iPhone with Dolby Atmos turned off and audio quality set to lossless and high or mid quality. Set your EX5 to USB and proceed to blow your nuts off.
