With Hegel there is a connection between areas of value. Even in the same area he says"content is itself the Idea as the unity of the Notion and reality."
With the Kant Fries School of Dr Kelley Ross the areas of value are independent.
So with Hegel the living with balance makes more sense. That is devoting let's say one hour of time to Gemara and another hour to Physics, and another to Music, etc until in one day you have covered all the areas of value. But with Dr Kelley Ross, it would make more sense to concentrate on the one area of value you need the most the whole day.

There is great value in the Kant Fries School of Thought. Still there are a few problem areas. One is implanted knowledge. There does not seem  to be any reason to believe that implanted knowledge corresponds to truth in any sense. And it does not does not seem to be the approach of the Rambam either. True that even natural law needs to be revealed but once it is reveled the veil of perception is taken away and then reason perceives it. Also the whole approach of Kant is absolute based on Hume  and Hume never showed that reason only can perceive contradictions as Dr Bryan Caplan makes clear.

Still there are aspects that the Kant Friesian School seems better. Personally There was a kind of area of value that opened up for me when I was in Israel in Safed that is the אור אין סוף  [the infinite light of God] as the Ari likes to put it. And that kind thing is hard to see or understand in Hegel while the Kant Friesian School seem to do a lot better with that. I mean -to put it bluntly--how do you come to that kind of thing by means of a dialectical process??? But maybe it is? After all the Rambam gives the approach towards God as being through a many stages, and the Ari also.
