PWD MKII, How does it compare in todays market?

I´m the owner of a PWD MKII and am happy with it. I just wanna here your guys take on SQ regarding todays DAC in the 1000-1500 dollar market. Every hifi tester is ready to say that a new dac in that region easy outperform a 10 year old 3000 dollar dac. I´m just not so sure… Whats your take?
