Esoteric DV50 vs BAT cd player

Has anyone had the opportunity to compare the Esoteric DV-50 to one of the BAT cd players? Comments appreciated! I really like the DV-50 but wonder if the BAT's are more lifelike in the mids and highs as well as as extended, dynamic and powerful in the bottom end.
Thanks for your advice !
The only real concern about the BAT is the use of a Phillips transport that will probably go bad. It also only plays CDs.
