Wadia 860 or 16i vs Levinson 39

Anyone ever had a chance to A/B the Wadia 860 or 16i and Levinson #39 using the variable out running direct (No Pre In Loop) to power amps? Looking for comments on the two and what player did they prefer and why.
Wadia, its not even close - far surpasses the Levinson.
