I have my phone connected to the E09K with the E17 docked and I can't seem to get the E17 equalizer to work. Should this be possible?
Correct me if I'm wrong (somebody's bound to!) but I think the E17 acts only as a DAC when paired with the E09K - no other functions will work.
It is much like using the 'Line Out' port on an amp, nothing will alter the output -turning the volume knob, altering tone, whatever.
You might have to investigate software EQing.
