Err..no. L7 is just a plastic connector that allows you to use the line-out signal from E7. There is no chip inside.

It bypasses the E7's internal amp so you can plug a more powerful better amp into it without dual amping.

Just a dumb question - the Signal to noise ratio and distortion is so low and so similar for fiio e17's DAC and AMP side of things, would dual amping be actually more efficient (ie to not introduce a plastic piece between the interconnect cable and the E17? ie would the plastic L7 be causing loss of detail?

First of, L7 won't cause a loss of detail. Second, whether you'll find double amping being more efficient, or more convenient (which I think is what you actually want to say), is up to you.

This thread has been dead for a while. Does anyone have real life experience with using the L7 so that the E7 will work as a DAC only to work with an amp. How does the quality compare with using an Hifiman EF2A or Aune T1 as an amp/dac?
