I would also like to speculate that when you're dealing with individual
milliseconds, as in the mammoth set-up, you have to factor in the "vibe" of
all those inter-connections, A/D-D/A conversions, cables, buffers, etc.
I suspect that in trying to duplicate the sound with one multi-effect like
PCM-80 you really need to start from absolute scratch and approach it with
bit of serendipity.
