iPhone playing TIDAL as source via Jitterbug ?

I tried playing TIDAL through a Lightning to USB 3 camera connection, which I picked up to use the Dragonfly RED. The Jitterbug was great, so I added one of those.

At home, I connected the iPhone, the Lightning to USB 3 connection, the Jitterbug into my Audioquest Coffee USB input cable for processing by the Directstream.

I was surprised and pleased by the results. Figured that the relatively low power output of the iPhone might have a bit to do with the positive perception ?

Wondered whether anyone else has tried similar ?

And if so, how it compared to their usual source. I felt the results were highly comparable to the Perfectwave Transport… (via i2s)
