My own personal preference is for spruce, because if feel that it is possible to build a spruce guitar with a full, warm tone and deep bases, but I have yet to hear a cedar guitar that could come close to the clarity and focus you can get with spruce.
I currently have two guitars - one spruce (handbuilt by Hew Morgan), and the other Cedar (Alhambra 9c).
Without doubt the spruce guitar has a richer and more focussed tone.
I may not be compairing apples with apples but the cedar guitar does not come close to my spruce topped guitar
But, then it's all subjective.
