In my case, I've owned the E7 for a couple of years, and it's a great portable DAC/AMP for train rides and laptop use. However, I bought a Bellari HA540 tube amp for my desk at work, because I wanted to have the warmer analog sound, power beefier (non-portable) headphone, and tubes just look cool :)
This L7 adapter allowed me to use my existing E7 DAC for my computer and run a good line level signal into the HA540. If you own an E7 and want flexibility in how the signal is amplified, this is a no-brainer. It's a lot cheaper than buying another DAC altogether.
However, it is made of cheap, cheap, cheap plastic. It's small enough to be sturdy from impact, but it's still super cheap looking. It's an eyesore next to something like the E17, which is a beautiful little piece of hardware. It would be five stars if not for the materials/build quality.
That's where I decided to buy the L7. It works extremely well and the best part is switching between headphones and external speakers is just the difference of powering on or off my 2.0 speaker system.
All you have to do on the E17 is grab a pen/pencil and move the slider on the side to LO BYPASS. This let's the L7 send a line level signal with no amplification. It does not affect the headphone out port at all so I leave it at LO BYPASS 100% of the time. All I have to do is plug the L7 into the E17 and USB cable into the L7. It will still charge the E17 and can still be used for headphone out. The gain, volume, bass, and treble options on the E17 will only affect the headphone out and not the line out on the L7. Which is what I want since the external speakers have their own treble, bass, and volume control.
What's nice is if I want to use my headphones and I have my speakers running, all I have to do is turn the volume knob on my speakers to off and put my headphones on. And if I want to do the opposite, just turn the volume knob to on on my speakers and take off my headphones.Read more ›
My only guess is that inserting/removing the L7 from the E17 somehow causes damage to the internal workings of the E17. I will admit it's possible that I'm doing something wrong. . .but plugging and unplugging the device is not rocket science and it's happened with two separate L7. For the price, the L7 not working is not a life changer. . .but ruining two E17's is unacceptable.
Bottom line is that it does what it is suppose to do and I would recommend it for someone needing to connect the DAC to their steror system through a line out connection rather then having to go through the headphone.
