Buffalo DAC?

Has anyone heard the Buffalo DAC from Twisted Pears(hopefully the latest ESS32 version)? I have a Monarchy NM24 and wondering if the Buffalo DAC is worth getting comparing to the $1000 level commercial DAC's such as the NM24 or the Benchmark DAC1. Thanks!
You might want to check the threads at diy audio.com The overall feedback on the Buffalo seems favorable.
Another idea, in order to generate more interest on the threads, might be to start a thread entitled ESS Sabre Dac. There are several model variations ie. ES9012, 9018, 9022 and 9008 & 9006. According to the audio press, several manufacturers are beginning to use them within their current line ups. McIntosh and SimAudio for example.
Expect to see some new DACs at RMAF 2009.
