Recommendations - DAC $500 w/ USB

Has anyone had any experience w/ the Musical Fidelity V-DAC? ...especially compared to the Cambridge Audio DACMagic? These seem to be two of the obvious choices for those of us who can't/won't drop big money on a DAC and who want a USB input to use with a computer.

Are there any other DACs that should be considered?

PS Audio has a fine unit with USB for 650 used,no problem to resell either.Your a little light at 500,YMMV
Thanks, Usblues! So you're saying that the stretch to $650 will yield a vast improvement in performance? ...especially when compared to the V-DAC and the DACMagic?

If so, I'd be willing to save a little more, but I'd really like to get some feedback from users who have direct experience with all or at least two of the mentioned DACs.

PS Audio DLIII is now on special $700. I have one I paid $850 for, and it has served me very well, although I do not always use the USB input. I feed the balanced outputs to an NHT PVC Pro then direct to my power amp with utterly stunning results. I can recommend without reservation.
