Ah. I see.
When I ran the laptop to the DAC directly to the speakers, it would let me use the FiiO volume control and bass boost, but when I ran the laptop to the DAC, then applied the L7 dock with a line out to the speakers, it wouldn't.
I apologize for all the novice questions, but would it function as a DAC when I use the L7 dock with a line out to the speakers, but then it acts as an amp when I connect the speakers to the DAC directly through the headphone jack (which is when I can use the bass boost and volume control on the DAC)?
