I have both. The 95 is my fav delay unit and is a completely different beast from the 93, even though at first sight they look like they have similar controls. The 95 has a much cleaner delay, depending on the optional memory up to 3 seconds (I think). As far as I can remember the 93 only goes to 256 or 512 ms. The 93 is extremely useful for flanging or chorusing. It doesn't have a lot of high end and that seems to make it sound great on guitars. My 93 needs some TLC, so I haven't used it in a while, but the 95 gets used on every project, mainly for lead vocal and solo guitar delay. It can also do some very cool tricks with doubling for vocals.

If you can find a working 95 for a decent price, buy it or let me know where to buy it

I have both as well... got my 93 in 1980 right after I had a conversation with pat Metheny and he was raving about it... I think it is still one of the great delay boxes of all time....and a fantastic bass chorus... the 95 is everything michael said above love it for vocals.. both great units

How does the Super Prime Time compare to those units?

Tried the SuperPrimeTime but I didn't like the sound as much as the 95, sounded too "digital" heh heh heh

funny, I tend to use my 93 on guitars also, I especially like when the bandwidth drops at longer delay times, kinda like a analog digital thing. at the longest setting it kind of sounds like a speak N spell.

Where are the best places to pick up a model 93 Lexicon Prime Time used?

I have been hunting Ebay for one for months with absolutely zero luck.

What is reliability like? Are they lots of components inside these which are no longer available or are most of the guts repairable?

Hi I posted in another thread but thought I might try and dig up this old one to see if anyone can help. I just got a Prime Time 93. When I run a signal through it there appears to be a 10db drop. I am not getting a nice strong signal back into pro tools. I am running a signal (tone) into the main input and then delays A and B direct out. All sliders on prime time are at 90%(100% gives me some distortion). The bus send is at unity gain. Is this drop in volume normal or do you normally get the same strength signal coming back in? thanks

The DIRECT A and B out on the 93 is an UNBALANCED 1/4" plug.

The main in and out are balanced.

That could be it.
