    I recall Mark Linett selling one a while back. Maybe he still has it.

    I don't get why anyone would buy one of these. Why not get a new big ole PC
    and put in a DAW and use SIR with all the tons of great impulses available on
    the web... you can use the whole setup on an aux.. this would set you back like
    2 grand with a good sound card. Thats like less then half the money of the
    Sony, and you can use the money you saved for beer and hookers.

    There aren't enough of them out there, and they are still pretty new. So
    you aren't going to be seeing used ones showing up for a few years yet.

    It doesn't sound like good hardware and hookers are getting expensive.

    There's a DPS V-77 on e-Bay right now.

    Maybe because they don't want to bother, and the box looks lovely, and
    it's supported fully by the manufacturer. I don't think that anyone
    who has that much money to spend on a reverb has enough time to build
    one from parts, software, and web downloads.

    If you have a 777 reverb, you can get chicks for free.

    Whatever floats your boat. I know of a few studios who use a Mac G4 and
    Altiverb on a few aux sends and they are doing great with it. How much is that
    Sony??

    I wanted to buy one new, but Sony told me they don't sell them anymore. The
    last stock is sold out, too.
    I settled for the Yamaha SREV1 which is nice as well.

    What about real-time for a start?
    I don't think it's very usefull to have half a second delay on the reverbs
    when you mix analogue with a desk.
    I used SIR before but now I bought the Yamaha SREV1 for mixing in real time.
    Very nice!

    Am hearing the same thing about Altiverb. Makes me curious enough to
    try the demo when I have some time. Their new 3.0 version makes it
    easier to sample acoustic spaces. Saw that you can dl acoustic spaces
    from Audioease's website which potentially is very cool.

    Well one thing you have to look at is resale over time. In ten years
    you would go through three PC's, a couple of sets of converters (gotta
    get the latest shit ya know), the software, then the upgrades, then
    somebody else's software when Altiverb goes tits up and leaves you
    stranded with no upgrade path.

    So at the end you will have probably spent close to the cost of the
    Sony, and you'll have an obsolete PC with some software and if you are
    lucky somebody will give you $200 for the stuff.

    The Sony will depreciate a lot too, but when you go to sell it, you'll
    get 29 bidders on Ebay and it will go for a fair amount of money.

    Have you priced a used 480L lately? I don't see that plugin/DAW based
    verbs have really cut into their value.
