I have replaced my Eagle with a 7300 and I am quite happy with it.
I also use an external preselector with it (probably not necessary in the states).
More important, I NEVER run it with the RF gain fully open. I always have the RF gain reduced.
It can do dozens of things a Corsair cannot do, many of which I don't need, but some of which I am not willing to do without.
The short answer to your question Bob is, we don't all share the same wants and needs, so it all depends on what you want your radio to do for you and whether or not you understand how to use it properly.

Wait a minute...
The Corsair receives better than a IC-7300? My Corsair is a "keeper", but why would I want a 7300, even to replace my Paragon. Maybe a 7300 is better than a Paragon. Even so, I would expect a "modern" radio to perform better than a vintage one.

But, if you already have one of those - I have IC7300, maybe an RGO can find a place in the shack. Steve N4LQ did a video comparing CW with IC7300 and Corsair II. Corsair II won very big, IMO even when noise reduction was turned on for the Icom. But, this specific comparison is for the sound from the speaker, not frequency stability, memories, or modes! Corsair wins on quiet rx. I find that IC7300 is vastly closer to Corsair when I turn the AGC off. I would like to hear how RGO compares to Corsair and IC7300 on CW as Steve set things up - with equal speakers. My guess is RGO will have notably quiet audio from the samples I've heard. That could make it a nice niche machine. I posted about this because it seems like the project is moving ahead, as compared to others - like the Palstar transceiver project that faded before launch.
