How do the Cary 303/300 and Meridian G08 compare?

These two players are in roughly the same price range, and I'm considering them for my next player upgrade. I'm going to take my sweet time deciding so any thoughts would be appreciated. I currently have a 303/200 and have auditioned the 303/300 but not the Meridian G08. Haven't been able to find a dealer who carries both. So some thoughts here would be great.
Nothing to contribute, but are you willing to share your impressions of the 303/300 vs. the 200?
Hard for me to offer a real good comparison as I auditoned the 300 at a dealer and the accompanying equipment was different/superior to my own. But I especially enjoyed the tube output. Very natural and smooth.
