Even though the new Canon 7d firmware 2.0 update eliminates the need for an AGC disabling device, many of them have very useful functions like built in gain and mixer controls.
The DS214 for example has independent controls for both the left and right channels. This combined with a Rode video mic or Sennhieser G2 wireless system gives you the ability to split the audio output into two different channels with two different audio levels. The nice thing about this feature is that you can feed the captured audio from the microphone into your camera at two different levels.
Since the Canon 7d doesn't give you any monitoring options, this configuration gives you some protection against audio peaking. Simply set one channel 8 to 10 db lower then the other and you have a built in buffer for audio peaking.
