Anyone with a Panasonic SC-HC35 http://www.panasonic.co.nz/products/home-entertainment/audio-and-hifi/sc-hc35/ figured out how to dock an iPhone 5 to this unit. Can't use an adapter and don't want to upgrade unit as we are very happy with it. Ideas anyone?

This would be too big: http://store.apple.com/nz/product/MD823ZM/A/lightning-to-30-pin-adapter

You could try: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Microgadget-30-PIN-ADAPTER-CONVERTER-GENERATION/dp/B00CX7MEWA which is a little bit smaller..

you could try this: http://store.apple.com/nz/product/MD824ZM/A/lightning-to-30-pin-adapter-02-m and have the iPhone 5 outside the unit..

Doh... Philips were did I get that from it is a Panasonic device.... I am loosing it. I have tried a couple of the leads but they do not seem to recognise the device and the adapter unit will not work as you can't close the device. There seems to be some 'micro switch' in the unit and the adapters do not engage it... not getting much help from Panasonic New Zealand.

Just bear in mind, Lightning connection has no analog part. So if your micro system relying on the old 30-pins analog connection for audio, then the Lightning-30pins converter will not work.

However if the micro system actually connects to the iPhone digitally - have access to iTunes library - then the converter will work.
