Which racked vintage channel strip eqs worth having?

Someone asks about vintage channel strip EQs, someone else inevitably asks if they've ever tried Acustica.

I have. Always underwhelmed, especially once I got past the first few wow phases and got used to the aspects of the sound I didn't like, and that was just with EQs. The first time I tried one of their comps was bizarre. The first release of Sand...lots of people raving about it, meanwhile I've got a plugin on my screen that doesn't sound or react like any plugin or hardware compressor I've ever used, let alone the SSL bus comp it was trying to be. Will keep trying them every couple years to see if anything has changed. YMMV.
