Pontus, Brooklyn+ or Benchmark 3? Pros and Cons

I’m interested in upgrading my current DAC, a Benchmark 1, to one of: a) Denafrips Pontus;  b) Brooklyn DAC Plus;  c) Benchmark 3   I am currently using my Benchmark 1 without a preamp, streaming TIDAL from a Bluesound Vault, and would like to continue that setup. I realize this will mean I’d need to add volume control to the Pontus, but that shouldn’t be a big problem. Other than that, have any of you heard these three DACs (or 2 of the 3), so you could give me your impressions on how they compare? Amp is a newly refurbished McCormack DNA-1 Gold (with Gravity Base Jr and other add-ons; love this amp) and speakers are Usher Mini-Dancer Two’s.
@kjanki:  That's good to know; I was wondering if I'd hear noticeable improvement going from the v1 to the v3.  Thanks!
@mahler123: interesting piece of info (I assume you meant Mytek, not Myth -- damned spellcheck!).  Thank you!
Nice amp!  I think if you share what sound characteristics you’re looking for you’ll get some more useful and thoughtful responses here. 
@soix: thank you!  I expected the amp to sound good when it came back, but what I got was even better than I had expected.  Unfortunately, I don't think I can give you the answer you're looking for; I just don't know how to phrase it any better then saying "when a note on a piano or guitar is struck, I want it to sound like the instrument is there in my room."  I'm not a fan of tubes (or at least I haven't liked the ones I've heard), because I always find the highs to be muddy or muted.  I generally like the sound of good solid-state systems, but not those that make the music sound unnatural, or brittle.  I think it comes down to what the Supreme Court said about pornography: "I'll know it when I hear it" -- but without a handy public listening room (as we used to have in NYC), that's not as easy or affordable as I'd like. Sigh...
of those 3 i would pick the pontus, it is the most 'organic' sounding of the bunch imho

^^^ never mind what i said earlier, above

you like solid state sound... mytek or benchmark is more up your alley... or chord...
