I have no experience with the 302, but lot's of experience with the 860 and 861's. And one 860 that had the Reference upgrade from Steve Huntley, at Great Northern Sound. It was the best that I have ever experienced.
You didn't say what price range you were looking at.
I am currently using a Resolution Audio Opus 21 that also has Steve's $1500.00 upgrade. These guys really know there stuff.
Blackest background and lowest noise floor, and most realistic digital playback of anything, except maybe my last 860, that I have ever heard.
You might touch base with him and get his opinion on the 302.
I've heard that the platter may be better on the 301 but that the 302 is slightly more musical overall.
Was also thinking of the Cary 303/300 but am not so sure about it. Some like it some don't, got a kind of luke warm review in Stereophile and if you read between lines....
I think I'll stick with the wadia 302. Anyone??
