Re: Cary 303/300 vs Ayre CDX-7 vs MBL CDP-2

I found the 303-300 to have a fuller bass and a brighter treble than the A5.
What is the rest of your system? I ask because I'm surprised you found the A5 brighter than an Arcam. Could there be something else in your system that is causing the brightness you heard with the A5? A cable mismatch perhaps? Not that I know what would be good cable choices for it.
Perhaps the Ayre would be a good candidate: it's resolving, dynamic, extended on both ends, with a good tonal balance and prat.
