USB DAC better than a Scott Nixon?

Just wondering what's out there under $1,000 that might be better than a Scott-Nixon USB DAC.
April Music Stello DA100.

I just picked up a MHTD Paradisea+. So far, I am very impressed. Here's a review of the Paradisea that I agree with, based on my own experience:

I got mine on ebay. Of course, it doesn't come close to my Wavelength Cosecant -- but that's slightly more expensive.
How about an Apogee Mini-Dac with USB? I don't use the USB, but as a DAC it sounds good and is very versitile for either a pro-audio or home use.
