So, I don't know if this is common knowledge. I did a search that came up with nothing. For Christmas, I asked for a Audere JZ3. The person who is getting it for me just emailed me and said that "it is apparently an older version. They have newer models available at no extra cost." Then there was the following description (which I'm assuming came up when trying to order or was sent in an email): "The new version offers a reprogrammable Z-Mode switch - each position can be set to 1 of 9 internal Z-Modes (the switch defaults are the same as the current jazz preamps). It comes in 6 different configurations: 2 bands: vol, vol, treble/bass OR vol, bal, treble/bass 3 bands: vol, vol/mid, treble/bass OR vol, mid/bal, treble/bass 4 bands vol/vol, high mid/low mid, treble/bass OR vol/bal, high mid/low mid, treble/bass" Then there was a link to the pdf of the instillation. So, the 4 band model is 3 (three!!) stacked knobs w/ plate mounted output jack. How sweet is that? Plus the 9 different Z modes, programmable to the switch. Again, I don't know if this is common knowledge but if they are offering it out to people who are ordering from them, I guess it can't be too big of a secret, right? How sick is that? So pumped that I will (I think) be among the first few to get my hands on one of these.
