Question Tone control: TDA7440 vs PGA2310+AD52xx+OP+Filter

for a new preamp design, i don't want to use potentiometers, as these are the main problem of my actual class-a preamp, built about 20 years ago (and the main reason to build a new one).

my original intention was to:
- select input using relais
- volume control using the PGA2310
- tone control using a standard op circuitry for treble/bass control (op+filter), but replace the 2 potentiometers with AD52xx digital potentiometers from analog devices

would this be a good solution? (i know there are people thinking that tone control is not required)

no i stumbled over a datasheet of the TDA7440.
i never heard of this device before and have no idea if it's really an option for high-end audio.
by looking at the dataseet, i think that it's spec is really not as good as the PGA2310, but when adding tone control to the PGA2310, i think this will add distorsion and will degrade the total spec too...

so i hope that there is an expert who can tell me if i better stay with my original idea (PGA2310 + OP/digipot based filter) or if i better switch to the TDA7440.

thank you very much for your help!

lm1036, uses pots but they controll DC voltage to give you balance, tone, and volume controll.
but none of these chips are high audio quality.
