It depends on how it is implemented.
To test this you would need to use a CLAS with the iPod 5.5 G connected to a static non changing amp and then have the E07K with L7 also connected to that same amp be it through a switch.
That is the only way to test. And has not yet been done with the exact things listed.
TheDAC model on the iPod 5.5G's aren't as high or "good" as the one FiiO uses if that makes more sense.
So if we go by a model for model wise thinking without including in implementation and other circuits and components present. The DAC present in FiiOs devices by a model to model comparison would have FiiOs being superior.
