Anyone used a Superlative Arms gas block?

Just curious if anyone was using one of these bleed-off type adjustable gas blocks on a suppressed AR? I am considering this for a suppressed Aero Precision M5 build I am working on. I am seeing reports that they are quieter when using this type of gas block over a standard restrictive type adjustable gas block because it doesn't increase the pressure in the barrel. Just hoping to get insights from folks that have them.

***How do you like it?

***Does it eliminate back pressure issues?

***Can you hear the gas venting over the noise of the suppressed shot?....or does it seem to be quieter with this style gas block?

Supposedly they make the gun quieter for the shooter, but louder overall. I haven't used one.
