How does Stage Tec XMIC+ manage to forgo the preamplifier stage

Can someone explain this please? And more importantly, is this considered a superior method?

This is from their website:

“Completely Eiminates the Need for Analog Pre-Amplification

Due to the special four-stage operation of the TrueMatch converters, the XMIC+ does not require any analog pre-amplification. Overdriving is thus excluded and analog component noise is unknown to these inputs.

The World Class: Microphone Reference Transducer with 158 dB Dynamic Range and Continuous Self-Calibration
The XMIC+ microphone input board features eight TrueMatch® 32-bit converters, each with a 4-channel active microphone splitter. Each of the channels has separate gain control, adjustable low-cut filters and a phase inverter and works in a permanent self-monitoring and self-calibration. The audio quality of the converters is highly praised by professional sound engineers worldwide and has never been achieved by any other product to date.“
