EMT 240

Or Gold Foil as it's also known. What's it like? I've auditioned one in a dealers a few years ago, only by putting a cd through it, but it seemed a lovely natural "room" sound, although I'm not sure if the particular unit I tried could have it's length adjusted. I think it's remote was broken.
Anyway, I've always wanted an old plate of some sort. I'd love to hear any comparisons also between the Gold Foil and the EMT 140 (that's the large one as far as I remember).

Is the 240 the R2D2 looking thing? If so, it's a digital 'verb but a damn good one. The 140 is the regular plate beast that most people think of when a plate is mentioned.

I don't think so Jay. The unit you may remember had handles or levers for adjusting parameters. I think that's the EMT 250 or 251. Here is a Gold Foil.

Ah, your right. It did have the big Jules Verne levers on it. I tend to get the model numbers confused at times. Is the 240 smaller then a 140? It looks like it from the picture.

It was a pretty big disappointment to us 140st lovers.

I have a 140 arriving in the morning so I'll let you know how it compares. Mind you, it won't be used for a couple of months because of control room alterations.
