cary cdp 306/200 and Wadia 861


This player has some amazing details as 4 pcm1704 dacs per side, great cd mecanism fra Philips and not to forget the highly regarded PMD200 filter. And it get great reviews on the net. Anyone heard it? Any comments? Have a Wadia 861 and might scale down - any comments, a Wadia 861 for a Cary 306?

I did exactly what you are thinking of doing. The only difference is I had an 860x. A big mistake, the Wadia has it all over the Cary sonically. At the time I wanted to use the difference in a totally different arena. Now I wish I had done it a different way. The Wadia is truly in a class of its own.

If your question had been, should I buy a Wadia or a Cary new, than I might answer in a different way, but since you have the Wadia, you really need to keep it. Don't get me wrong, the Cary is a really good player when price is a consideration, especially when a Wadia costs almost twice as much. Anyway, that is just my 2 cents...............Bob
