Not sure if you saw that the D50s has a newer USB driver (version 4.67). Since the HW is (almost) the same it works fine on DX7s as well.
Please comment if you have a different experience.

See the new driver here: http://www.tpdz.net/wdzn_detail/newsId=89.html
The Topping USB driver can be used for all models. Therefore, Version: V4.67.0 for D50s is the latest driver.
In addition, the remote control can be used in common with DX3Pro D50 D70 DX7s

Drivers will keep working as long as they keep using the same microcontroller :)

For a while I was leery of using the DX7s as a DAC\pre for speakers since a wrong button press could put it into line out mode and blow my speakers. But I think I found a good application for it. Using it with powered speakers, I can set the input level at a couple notches below the +4dB nominal, then when the DX7s is up to 0 dB, it's damn loud, but not clipping, distorting, etc. And picking up a D10 I can get another USB device on there without having to rearrange cables to switch.

Is there a adapter where I can connect my headphones to the 4-pins plug on the DX7s which I just purchased.
What do you mean? You would just use the 6.34mm jack for your single ended headphones.
XLR doesn't offer any benefit except for more power which isn't needed especially with a DX7S that already provides like 800mw into 6.34mm.

You would need to have the headphone re-cabled. No adapter possible. But like @Jimster480 says, just try the normal 6.3mm output, it's not like balanced will sound any different. Balanced has more power but that's it.

Thanks guys. Your comments put me at ease ;). Now is to wait for the delivery of the DX7s and hope I can experience audio bliss on my DT880Pro, Takstar HF580 and the SIVGA.
