a tc m5000 is very versatile (great halls, plates, rooms, delays, modulation etc) and great sounding. and can be had for much less. lexicon 300M (without LARC) is another hi end reverb contender for a little less than 1k $.

Lexicon 200 and a good Spring would be wise.

Unless you need hardware reverb for practical reasons, you will get better value and just as good sound from plugins. For example, the Lexicon plugins have exactly the same algorithms as the hardware.

They do not sound remotely as good as PCM60, 70, 480, etc.

What I meant was the Lexicon PCM plugins are the same as the hadware PCM92/96. Plus the plugin has the advantage that you can run as many as your computer can handle and you can easily integrate it into your DAW.

Obviously the vintage Lexicons are a different matter, but how many of them can you get for $1000? (not to mention they are much harder to get hold of, might need repairs Etc..). All depends on your personal priorities of course.

Got it, either way I find those plugins to be really mediocre compared to the better Lexicons and even the MPX1 and LXP series.

i have a ton of great hardware reverb (lex 480, 224xl, emt 140, emt 246s, ams rmx 16, tc m5000) but i do use software reverb all the time side by side with them. they do sound better, sometimes the difference is bigger and sometimes smaller - without a good monitoring its probably not even that big. what i find the biggest difference is having something like a LARC remote which gives you the possibility of tuning the verb just to your needs within seconds. the reverb becomes almost something like a synth where youre tweaking its parameters constantly in a creative way. but even without - the ams rmx 16 only has 9 algo´s but they all just sound really good. i do love reverb

Got a little active speaker, two decent mics and a spare room / hallway ?

Nothing beats the real thing.

I find the PCM 60 & 70 highly overrated in practical use.

I also agree that real spaces are unbeatable at sounding like, er, real spaces.

Pick all of these up, and put 300 bucks in your pocket.

For HW I still like a Yamaha Rev 500. It's very close to the Lexicon verbs. Got mine @70 bucks on e bay. Fun thing is.... the condition is like new.

In software.
For the Vintage Lexicon vibe it's always Valhalla Vintage Verb @50bucks. It's close to HW.

For a more modern, less modulated sound you can't go wrong with Phönix Verb, or the Liquid Sonics 7th H.

For a LV upfront approach I also like Slates VerbSuite or the Rev 500.

To many options...
I hope my taste helps you to make a wise decision.
