Hmm, I'm not sure what you mean by that. The E9 has a line in just like any amp would.
Anyway, I do have an E7. But I was thinking about using the E9 it with other sources too.

So if I hooked up say an STX to the line-in, what would be the disadvantages sonically of doing that compared to putting an E7 in the dock and connecting via USB?
Would it make an STX sound worse?
I have the E7 and even just using the line-in doesn't seem too bad for the price (granted I am very inexperienced). I assumed that it would be the same with E9.
