Has anyone checked this one out? Looks like an enhanced 3Move with better circuit design.

The amp not only has active balanced ground but also has a discrete volume control (32 positions). This volume control is not a standard industrial solution but uses a concept in which the position of an analog potentiometer is measured using a low-power ADC and in which the output of this ADC is used to control electronic switches that set the volume level. The result is a very clean and detailed sound without any channel imbalances.
Any reason why crossfeed was left out? Jan's crossfeed implementation is excellent, very subtle and allows for hours of non-fatiguing listening.
