More complex topology does not always a better amplifier make. As many have said before, Implementation is everything.
IMO, resurrecting an enigmatic topology seemingly much ignored by the mainstream and improving upon it is quite a interesting feat. I am sure there is advantages to both designs mentioned, but neither is any suitable example of poor engineering.
Besides... going into a review of an amplifier's capabilities with such heavy bias is surely a self-fulfilling prophecy of epic proportions.
I agree with ParadoxPer's response and would like to see this argument revisited in a stately manner...
once both parties have HEARD these amps in question.
Dismissing this new Schiit off-hand is a disservice to Jason and the rest of the Head-fi community.
Everyone should get a chance ('cause that's what keeps prices low[!!!]).
