I'm a bit of a Naim fanboy, but their outboard power supply upgrades are notoriously expensive.

I listened to both and ended up buying the MF Dac.
I demoed a whole bunch of DACs, including the Benchmark DAC1 USB, MF DAC, and the DAC•iT. The DAC•iT is worth hearing. Agree that the DAC1 is refreshingly clear and precise sounding, but pending on the system it can be sibilant and fatiguing.
