I have not tried it yet....
BUT, I heard the same promises about Capture One Pro. In the end, although Capture One has some nice skin tones, it became apparent to me that these smaller companies cannot have some special magic that the Adobe teams cannot produce. In fact, the latest algorythims for the 2012 process in LR (ACR) are leaps ahead of Capture One 6, perhaps upcoming version 7 will catch up.
Perhaps one raw converter might have a default style that best matches your personal taste, but I have not seen true technical advantage to any of them (save latest process of ACR).
