I have a Samsung Galaxy S3 and some DAC's work with it and some don't. For example, the Fiio E7 will work and the Fiio E17 won't work. Function of the way USB is setup on the phone and the chip used in the DAC as I understand it.
Here's a link to one thread on Head-Fi that talks about the Galaxy Note 2 and USB output.
kse I don't know if the camera kit for the iPad works with the iPhone.
If I were you, I'd try out an airport express or Apple TV. If you're in an apple world, they are awesome. In fact they are also reasonably well supported from android too. There are apps on the android that let it play via AirPlay.

For ipods you can use the Wadia 170 to get digital out. iphones are more problematic. I don't know of any reasonalby priced way to get digital out. The Wadia 171i will do it but it's $599. At that price you may think about just streaming files from your computer to your audio system.
