I spent a couple of minutes a/b the Move and the GV7. The Move is superiorby a bit, better warmth, bass and engaging soundstage but only a bit. The amp section of the Move is very special which shows how good Norms V7 is. The V7 blows away all of my earlier versions of his amp. Like twice as good as V5. I keep looking down at it in amazement. It has great dynamics and punch, terrific clarity and well rounded bass, it powers my D2000s at 10:00, effortlessly. It is really unfortunate they are unavailable to others. Does anyone remember what the battery life expectancy is on a regular 9V battery?
One thing I did notice about the V7 last night.... It's transparency really shines only when plugged into the 12V adaptor. As soon as you unplug the adaptor and run on the rechargable battery, the sonic transparency drops a bit, I'd say about 35%. The details and air close in a bit, as well as the soundstage. But I almost always use the adaptor anyway.
