Musical Fidelity M1 vs. other DAC such as Hegel HD11

I am in the market to get a DAC.  Considering the MF M1 but also considering the HD11 from Hegel.  Anyone has any opinion?

What is your server? PC or Mac?

The Hegel HD11 only accepts 96kHz signals through USB which would be a turnoff for me. Built in sound card? I suppose that's OK with a PC.

The Muscial Fidelity only accepts 16 bit 48kHz data over USB, mega turnoff.

If you are using optical or coax input they may be OK.  I'd look at the Schiit Bifrost as well. Only $349 ($449 USB) and sounds as good as most for $1000.
