Mike, Malcolm et others...
I don't have an IC-7300, b u t...One of my very best Pals, Ken, N6PCD, 070-801, has one and speaks very highly of it on the digital modes.
He told me that he can see the waveform of his outgoing audio signal on the TFT screen. That in itself makes it a winner in my opinion.
Yes, receiver sensitivity is very important, as well as the filtering on cw signals, without spending an additional $100-$150 for a 500 hz filter. But, that's just me. I've not parked my derriere in front of one yet. But I will!
Like I need another radio? HA! Currently, I alternate between my Yaesu FT-1000MP, my Icom IC-7800, for digital work and I just picked up a Yaesu FT-991A for this coming years APE season. Somewhere in the clutter is an Icom IC-756 Pro III that's taking a break from the trench's.
My $0.02 worth.

I have a 7300. You don't need a new radio, but you do want it. If you are getting a stimulus check you will be over half way there.
I like mine and with compromised antennas I often get good comments on audio quality.

This IC 7300 thread motivated me to take a look at this rig. I just finished watching a 25 minute walk through of its features on YouTube. 24 of those minutes were spent with me going Wow every few seconds. Wow. What a lot of features and what a nice user interface. Now the question is - don't I 'need' a new radio? Feel free to encourage me.
