AR CD 3 vs Cary 303/300

I would like to know if someone compared Audio Research CD3 versus Cary 3003/300?
If the price were almost the same , wich one should I choose?
(*I live in a city that there is no dealer , so I depend on experience of others persons).
I'd go with the Cary.
Across the board, I think their digital is better than ARC.
Just my opinion.
