Right now, I have the ATH-M50s, but both my computer and my phone don't really have enough "Umph"; they just dont power the headphone enough. 
I also want to be able to use the DAC for my speakers in my room. So a headphone out and a line out would be nice. And I need some kind of bass boost. All for under $100. 
 
So, I've done my research. It seems like either the E7, or the E07K sound perfect. Though, before I buy either one of them, I want to check out any other alternatives. 
 
I guess I have a couple of questions first.
1) What other alternatives are there to the E07K?
2) What exactly is the difference between the E7 and E07K? Is it worth the extra $15?
3) Both of these amps have 2 headphone outs. Can one be used as a headphone(powered) output, and the other as a line out? Can they be used at the same time?
4) What is the point of the LCD screen on these amps?
 
Thanks guys

The Fiio E10 comes with a dedicated line-out.
