Audio level - Just adjust your audio level carefully, as it will distort with a hot signal.
Monitoring - works well with headphones.
Charging - It will charge some devices, but not my iPad Air. It does with iPhone 6 and 10. It works with a 5v tip positive wall wart, even tho there is no documentation of the power specs anywhere. I thought the IK Media powersupply was grossly expensive, if available.
Documentation - is minimal,.at best. Look for YouTube videos.
Signal input - I'm feeding it with a balanced signal from a Behringer X32 fed thru a reversed DI box. I wanted the line-level version rather than the XLR balancrd version for 2x the $$ for more flexibility at church and to save a few $ in case it did not work. In retrospect, I probably should have bought the XLR version.
Software - it works well with the in-service default camera app. Did not download the default app, as the reviews were terrible.
Mounting - need to glue a Velcro strip on the Stream to hang it on the camera stand. Otherwise, it hangs from the Lightning connector.
Other Platforms - have not yet tested with my Android phone or a PC, but expect it to work well.
Summary - I would buy it again, but would choose the balanced version. I will keep the line level version at church for portability and flexibility
The iRig Stream is a handy little interface for doing both recording and live streaming. This device was tested with an iPhone 7 (Verizon version), running IOS version 13.3.1, and version 3.0.2 of the iRig app.
The interface itself is pretty straightforward. There are two RCA input jacks, designed for a nominal level of -10dBv, with an input impedence of 16.5K ohms. A mini-DIN jack connects it to an iPhone or computer, with three interface cables supplied. A 3.5MM jack on the side allows for either stereo headphones or a combo headset with mic (TRRS connection).
A switch (supposedly) allows the headphones to monitor from either the interface or the phone (see comments below). There are two small recessed thumbwheels for the headphone level and the mic level of the headset mic (if used).
The input level is controlled by a (nicely damped) rotary pot, with three LED's to indicate the level. A switch also allows the interface to sum the two input channels to mono when used with apps that only support one channel.
The interface is capable of 24 bit recording at sample rates of 32, 44.1 and 48kHz, and has a coaxial DC jack to allow the connected device to be charged using an external 5 volt supply (not included).
The app is relatively straightforward to use, and with the optional add-ons allows the user to export high quality WAV files and MP4 video files to a variety of destinations. I tested the phone using the optional Pro Bundle, which costs $14.95.
I conducted basic tests with swept sine waves and a few different levels, all of which were relatively flat. I have not had a chance to check out the quality of the A/D converter, and don't know what chip set is used. I also did not have an opportunity to test how susceptible it might be to RF interference.
In use, there were a couple of issues that cropped up.
1. The switch which allows for loop through monitoring does not function the way that one would think. When the loopback switch is in the "On" position, it will loop through the interface, BUT, it will also reproduce audio from the phone itself at an attenuated level (such as playing back a file). It DOES NOT completely defeat the audio from the device. The only way to completely turn off the audio from the device itself is to turn the level on it all the way down. When the switch is in the "Off" position it will playback a file at normal level. This a rather contrary to how a typical loop-through monitor functions.
2. When plugging the interface into the phone, it momentarily allows the source audio to be monitored, but drops out after a second or two, until the app is opened. It also does not reliably connect the headphone output once the app is opened. I would have preferred an arrangement whereby the monitor is activated once the interface is plugged in.
3. The 3 LED's for the record level indication are rather skimpy, and there is no way to calibrate the actual level the external input (mixer or other device). I would have much preferred at least a 10 segment LED indicator with some kind indication of the actual level in dB. While there is a 60 segment 3 color bargraph style display in the app, there are no witness marks anywhere on the display that would give you any idea of what the actual level is. To complicate matters, even though it is a 60 segment display, it actually only displays a 50 dB range (IE, it's not 1 dB per division). Kind of annoying...
4. I would have liked to have had a way to attach a mounting clip of some sort to be able to attached the interface to a stand, which is likely how it would be used if a phone was used in the camera mode for streaming or shooting video.
I tested the file export function to sent files to my Dropbox account, which worked without any issues (but can be rather slow depending on your connection).
In addition, I tested the interface with the Dayana Voice Record Pro app. The app recognizes the interface and allows the user to set the sample rate and bit depth, but the only way to activate the monitor is to actually be in "record". (The loop through switch seems to have no effect on this). Also, for some reason the level on the Voice Recorder Pro app is a about 6 dB hotter than the level shown in the iRig app (for the same given input level). So, certainly functional, but doesn't act exactly the way one might expect.
The user manual available online could be a bit better, but at least they included a few specifications.
Bottom line, it's not in the class of a Focusrite iTrack Solo, but for the $$ it's a handy device to have.
Be sure to not that the headphone jack is also a mic input jack. The first week I work my cellphone ear plugs with mic and the live stream audio included my comments!
The audio fails to send the signal into any device now (MacBook, iPad or my iPhone 11 Pro).
Please note IK's customer support is horrible. No way to talk to anyone. Their Forums are hard to navigate and contain outdated information. I advise you to find a more reliable product.

It stopped working after just one week - The audio drops out as soon as you plug it into an iPhone.
This is an item designed for musicians and djs, but NEVER gig using this because it will cause a huge embarassment.
If you appreciate good quality electronics, you'll will be dissapointed as soon as you unbox this cash grab. Try the Evermix4 instead and stay clear of this second class hustle.
Decent Bass and Treble response from Mixer to Computer.
Just a shame that Power Pack doesn't come with it but still can be powered by connection to Computer or Laptop.
