I had the CSA(?)303 and it is a great pre. I do now have a 305 after having a Hovland HP 100 and find that it is keeping in the pedigree. The only thing is the trade-off of having remote control but not having a balance control. With my 303 I could get the vocals more focused. I would have to say keep your 301 unless you can get a smokin deal on a 305 and you really want the remote control.
