I suppose similar sound all depends on what you are comparing it to, right? The Bongiovi AGC has several unique characteristics and optimizations (hence the patents) so the whole is more than the sum of its parts.
The entire DPS/MDPS algorithm is specifically setup to optimize many different types audio systems. You can read our public descriptions at the SDk website and our Medical website. So one of the primary advantages of the Bongiovi AGC is exactly what you stated…flexibility in many different applications.
