Digitally processed reverberation effects With the advanced digital technology employed in the Sony DRE 2000, high-quality reverberation effects with a better signal-to-noise ratio, better frequency response and wider dynamic range can be added to incoming signals. Reverberation not susceptible to external vibration Unlike conventional mechanical reverberators, the Sony DRE 2000 is unaffected by external vibration or mechanical shock because all operations are performed electronically. Because of this, the Sony DRE 2000 can be installed almost anywhere. Reverberation parameters easily programmed The reverberation parameters which determine the reverberation characteristics are easily programmed with the parameter buttons on the supplied remote control unit. Programs can be memorized Up to 10 programs can be stored in the non-volatile memory for later recall. Delay modes The delay function produces a delay between the sound source and the delivered signal, with delay times of from 1 to 999 milliseconds (for each channel) in mode-1 and delay times of from 1 to 999 milliseconds (channel 1) and from I to 499 milliseconds (channel 2) in mode-2. Echo modes Echos can be added to incoming signals in two modes. In mode-1, the same echo pattern is added to both channels and in mode-2, different echo patterns are added to each channel. Pre-prograrned reverberation, delay and echo modes Four modes of reverberation, two modes of delay and two modes of echo have been pre-programmed in the unit. Compact and lightweight The Sony DRE 2000 is more compact and lightweight than conventional mechanical reverberation units.

Wazup fellas, What's actually all the fuzz about sony's 80s dre 2000 reverb unit? Isn't a contemporary digital plugin reverb much better than those old rack units? Mike
Nailed it. Cheers, Steven
well, that difference is also obvious in that demo from flippy floppy, it might have been pronounced through eqing in tracks, but if something isnt there youn wont be able to process it. i hope i am wrong and its just about dialing that sound in on the rd8.. the snare is the hardest part...
