You're talking about with the built in EQ? This is how it looks like:

 

It doesn't sound right when I do -4dB this way because I don't think the bass frequencies were boosted in that shape.

Lol I have no idea what I'm looking at.

Cool, let us know how it works. Which version of Lollipop are you on?

I've ordered another cable from JDS Labs, which was only slightly more expensive than the China direct seller with shipping, since that should get here about the same time as the FiiO E07K.

 

Thanks for the tip.

I finally received my E07K today and just finished testing it with my LG G4 running 5.1 and my Nexus 5 running the 6.0 "M" preview (build MPZ44Q) and got some interesting results.

 

Everything worked fine on both phones including the digital out with volume adjustment (I forgot that Google managed to control the digital output level in the official DAC support for 5.0+), the interruption and resumption of audio for notifications and incoming calls, and the quality of the audio (using PowerAmp and FLAC files) when routed through the DAC/Amp of the E07K.

 

However, I tested with other programs including Pandora and Google Play Music and found that, at least in streaming mode, connecting and disconnecting the USB OTG cable was much more reliable on Lollipop (my G4 is running 5.1) when using Google Play Music in radio mode versus Pandora. On my Nexus 5 running the "M" preview I had no problems connecting and disconnecting repeatedly and getting DAC output with either Pandora or Google Play Music, while on my G4 running 5.1 I sometimes had to reboot after connecting the E07K while Pandora was active and even then it didn't always reactivate the USB audio output. It seems there may still be something flakey about USB audio support in 5.1.x that may have been fixed in "M" but I'm not ready to conclude that until I do some testing with 5.1.1 on my Nexus 5. I should be able to get to that in the next couple of days.
