How well would this work with a pair of Yamaha Hs7?
Im currently running them from an old PCIE-soundcard and notice a static hissing sound in some games. I think this should be eliminated if i use and external audio interface and since im consuming a lot of music too it seems worth investing into higher quality equipment. Im just a little unsure because everyone here seems to be talking about driving headphones with this device.

The HS7 are powered monitors. You can feed them the line out with either XLR or RCA and it'll be fine. I don't believe the volume control on the DX7s will affect the line outs though so you may need to put a pre-amp between the DAC and the monitors.

how sure are you about the volume controll not affecting the line out? because if that was the case this would be a lot less useful for me..

I'm fairly certain, but you can download the manual from Topping to check for yourself.
You can buy a passive XLR preamp for around $50 to get volume control on the line outs.

Volume control affects both headphone and line out when the device is set to "headphone and line out" mode.
