Bel Canto Dac-1 v. any Wadia Dac Any one

Has anyone heard both the Bel Canto Dac-1 and any of the Wadia Dacs? I would be interested in the differences!

I have heard the older Wadia Dac's and I agree with the above. I have heard the newer Wadia cd players (I think it was an 860) and I think a properly driven Bel Canto is a little better for a lot less money. The only Dac I have heard that I think is better than the Bel Canto is the Theta Gen V and that is only because the Theta has more bass slam. I have owned both the Theta Pro Basic I and II and they are not even close to the Bel Canto.
