Ultimately Redline is a great value, considering the quality of it. I too have 2C audio's Aether, which I love. They are both great. Aether is just such a convincing-sounding reverb; I would give it a slight edge because of it's feature set & continuously varying responses. It is, however, much more taxing on the cpu than Redline. If you get both, & then UA's Plate 140, you've pretty much got all of your reverb needs taken care of.
