Has anyone heard both of these units?

I'd like to hear your opinion regarding their sound quality. 
Which one has better sound quality?  Spec-wise, they are similar. They're both using Sabre reference chip and support 32bit, DSD, etc.
I'm looking for a DAC with a very wide sound stage, detail and neutral sound. 
 
Thanks in advance!

Would be interested in any input on this as well. I'm currently trying to decide between the two. Leaning towards the grace for the display as opposed to blinking led's if all else is equal.

Also interested in a comparison... though I find the DAC2's input/output connections to be more flexible (RCA line out, standard USB connector etc)
