Would be interesting to hear them out of curiosity.
Doubt I would be interested though.
The SPL Phonitor does a great job of recreating stereo width and depth. On great recordings, my other amps that do not feature crossfeed can be fed crossfeed through Roon (Bauer stereo to binaural) if need be. I only use that feature on early recordings that are really panned hard L/R. The great recordings are rather enjoyable as is with an "out of headphone experience" to ears used to headphone listening.

I don't find them fugly at all. I actually like the way they look. I look forward to hearing them the next time I go to a CanJam event.

They will be interesting to hear for sure. Maybe at RMAF next year.

The multiple driver cross feed approach is not new - seems to pop up every decade or so.

I think that modern dsp plug ins will mature enough to provide high quality stereo imaging.
