Hard for me to give an entirely objective, side-by-side comparison against the E7, as my E7 is now on permanent "loan" with a friend
However, it sounds better to my ears (from memory), both in terms of overall quality of sound and lack of colouration. Lovely smooth, crisp presentation right across the board when using it in AMP & DAC mode, connected to my laptop. Still haven't paired it with any sources yet, so no opinion on that.
For me, the extra functionality of the E07K was enough to persuade me into purchasing (it's the same price as the E7 in the UK), as I loved the E7, and this has some extra bells and whistles such as the hold switch and alterable gain switching and tone controls. It also has improved opamps I believe, and the ability to decode 24bit/96Khz in USB mode. Very happy with it so far.
