This is to say that all natural spaces are not useful - its just that algorithmic reverb is a musical design. I did about 30 movies and sounds and the 300 is not the same as 480 which is not the same as TC nor the same as Quantec or AKG 68K or Roland 880 - in my view the Lexicon reverbs (300 and 480), the Kurzweil KSP8 and the Eventide are the world's best for synths and sound design.

For reverb only, you will not really miss anything. The sound is fabulous Lexicon. I'm an owner FWIW.
Are your's demos of CS80 on youtube?
Best I have ever herad from all cs80 demos! Soundwise and musical wise.
