used DAC for under $350 Channel Isalnd....

Has anyone done a side by side comparison between, or have experience with the Soundstream DAC-1 and a Channel Island VDA with the accompanying power pack. I am currently using the Soundstream and I was thinking about an upgrade.
The Channel Isalnd has a had a few really great reviews and I am fairly confident that the output would be better, but by how much I don’t know.
Or perhaps if someone could suggest another used DAC for under $350.00
My current amp is a Rotel, soon to be either a Musical Fidelity or Krell 300iL.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I'm not sure about the price, and you probably won't find a used one, but look into the Ack! DAC. It's getting rave reviews, and not too expensive.
