I might just have to try it.
It absolutely should work with the Lightning adapter. The Lightning adapter handles converting the digital audio output from the iPhone into analog audio, and the Y-cable splits that off into the headphone jack. Meanwhile, the USB control signals would pass through the Y-cable and the Lightning adapter unaltered. I think the naysayers were the same people who initially thought that analog audio output would be impossible with the Lightning adapter because they read "iPod Out not supported" and thought that meant analog audio.
