Anyone who has actually used a real plate reverb knows the difference. Same with classic REAL echo/reverb rooms. An absolute classic that I got to use years ago is the plate room in Rockfield.

I had used EMTs and many others, but Rockfields cowshed is something else. An old brick cow barn with a low-ish ceiling and rows of large glass plates on steel posts, which can swivel. Mic at one end, speaker at the other.
You set the reverb/echo path by swiveling the glass plates to the length of path (delay) you want & then swivel other plates to add sub- reverbs/echoes. Bloody amazing... and it sounds real because it IS real. You can`t get much more analogue than that!
