EMT type plate amp?

I have a 1970s Audicon "The Plate" stereo plate reverb built, I've been told, by Gene Lawson of Lawson microphone fame. It's a nice unit. While I do like the sound and the plate seems in good (not rusted) condition and the damper mechanism works well, It lacks the (INSERT OVERUSED AJECTIVE HERE) of the EMT 140 I've used. Does anyone know where I might find an amp smilar to the original tube amp of the 140 stereo plate?

I have no idea, but i'll have a technician go thru my (tube) emt's in the next few weeks and if he can identify them i'll report back

Taking a guess, it's more likely the differences in plate material, plate size, mounting method, damping method, pickup types, pickup positions, and plate tuning. I'd put all of those in front of the amp.

I have an Echoplate 1 and an Echoplate 3 which are different in size from one another; they produce very different sounds. Both have a different plate material than the EMT's as I understand it.
