1) How does one set gain on the E17 in order to get the best sound possible? Should the impedance of the headphones be considered in the decision?
2) If you plug the E17 with an mp3 player via the two-sided jack cable (and so the E17's DAC is not working) and set the gain to 0db, is the E17's amp working or is it exactly as if you where not using the E17?
3-a) If one uses the E17 and the Fiio L5 cable in conjunction with a Sony Walkman, that person will be bypassing the the Walkman's amp and use the E17's amp; but will the E17's DAC be in use also?
3-b) Regarding the sound quality, is it a good idea to use the E17+L5 setup with a Sony Walkman mp3 player?
3-c) What type of Sony Walkman can be used with the E17? What spec should i look for?
4) Is the DAC mode only used when the E17 is plugged into a computer?
5) When using the E17 has a DAC with a computer, at what level should one set the volume of the computer?
