Lexicon MX5 or Kurzweil Rumor or none...

I've been 'itching' to get an external reverb box. I guess I'm just curious as to whether or not it will sound better (on a $600 budget) than plug-ins.

Unfortunately, this is being bought via a gift certificate (long story), so I'm limited to what I can get/order from GC.

I can order either one of these units. I've also heard decent things about the M-One from TC.

I want to hear from people that have used or tried both of these (or all 3, including the M-One). I need to know if they beat out plug-in reverbs in terms of sound quality, tails, ease of use, etc.

The MX500 is very intriguing because of the firewire/VST plug-in thing. That is a very cool feature. I've heard/read mixed reviews on the Lex MX series stuff.

I know a lot of people like the Rumor, but I want to hear it from folks that have heard both units, if possible.

If neither are worth the money...in other words, if I am not going to gain any quality at this budget level, over software, I'll spend the money on something else. I already have the UAD-1 reverbs (plate 140, realverb, dreamverb). I also have Lexicon plugin verb and the Sonitus (which is surprisingly good and subtle).

If it isn't worth it, I'll spend the money on something else. I could use a few drum mics...maybe a 610 Solo or an S20. I suppose I could order them in and demo them, but that is cumbersome and of questionable ethics...I guess...or maybe not??

Please help me with your opinions...I would GREATLY appreciate it!
