as I understand, this is why they have not produced a re-issue 16sec delay
yet. The parts used in it are long gone. (a terrible danger with music gear
that can last on the market years or decades, when the PC industry only
needs the parts for 9 months.....)  My guess is they are having a lot of
trouble reproducing the quirks of it in currently available technologies.
