tape delay...

I just fixed an RE-501 and the owner just send me a mail that I can buy 
it for a fair price. But a fair price is still, well impressive.
But the sound, the joy and the coolness of this thing is, well impressive!

So, it's not that I can't afford it, but it's like buying that Plymouth 
of 1958, I will spend more time fixing it than driving it and I actually 
don't have the time (and the skills) to fix a car... Unfortunately I do 
have the skills to fix a tape delay so the comparison doesn't fly... but 
you get the point I actually don't need a tape delay, but I so want one ;-)

Anyone knows how the emulations compare to the originals? The seller 
switches over to a Strymon Volante and he claims they sound the same.
