Well, SACD on the Sony is pretty darned wonderful, and the CD playback would be plenty good enough (and is good enough) for many audiophiles. But I thought the 303 was better on Redbook, tonally richer and more colorful, and more musical overall. I bought the Cary and haven't looked back. I listen mainly to classical, and there's just not enough SACDs out there (yet) to tempt me. I bought a player that sounds great with the hundreds of CDs I already own. Just how it sounds to me, YMMV. Have you listened to both in your system?
