Hold on, if I want a DAC player, so usb out to headphone amp, then can't I just use the E17 on it's own? Why would I also get the E09K as well?

I am guessing more power. E17 is probably not powerful enough to drive high impedance phones on its own.

I have the FiiO E09K + E17 combo to drive my Q701's and it really rocks them. Something my iBasso Sidewinder D7 couldn't (good amp though).

Yup basically the e17 doesn't have the required wattage for higher than 300 ohm cans.

The boost of 0b +6db +12db on the E17 works very well for some 50ohm cans. This dock offers more possibilities for RCA out/inputs and will power those 300ohm buggers.
