Ayre QB-9 DSD or Codex?

I don’t need the preamp function of the codex and the optical input is not a big deal for me. In terms of pure sound quality of USB input which is better? I’ve read that the QB-9 has a slight edge but I have yet to hear the Codex.

Also considering the Esoteric D-07x.

Any input on these would be fantastic.

I’m trying to jump on one but the seller didn’t reply back to me yet...

Also, I don’t run balanced on my setup, so I don’t know if I would get the full benefits of the Codex.
