At $500 the MS HD is an amazing unit.
I'd have no hesitation with the MS II for $87.
Schiit makes a great product too.
Honestly I'd go between those two, and practically speaking looks are going to be the biggest difference.
Which on looks better? Are you going to put it in a location where one fits better? Does having the USB port on the same side as the outputs matter? Would it be better if they were on opposite sides?
Those are going to be the biggest factors. Practically they will both have the same sound quality, I can't imagine you would be able to tell the difference between the two.
