What McIntosh disc player sounds better?

I was wondering if the Mcd301 sounds better than the Mvp871

I haven't heard the 871 but heard the 861 and I thought is very similar in sound on SACD, but I vote for the 301 on Redbook. I guess it would come down to, do you need the DVD-DVD/A or you after the Sacd/Redbook for playback. Either piece will justify the means whether you are looking for multi use or just two channel. In My opinion of course. McIntosh makes some great stuff.
Why not go to the MS 750... no more plastic cases filling up your listening room!
