Should Sound Devices 302 Die Like The 442?

Why is the Sound Devices 302 not dead yet?

Seems very strange that with the success of the MixPre-3 and the MixPre-6 that Sound Devices haven’t killed off the 302. The fact you can order a MixPre-3 for ~£675 or order a new Sound Devices 302 for ~£1,824. The former with recording functionality and just as many inputs and outputs with even quieter preamps at that.

Let me know in the comments what you think.
