That is a perfectly acceptable pair of effects in my world, and are extremely common around here in 300-800 seat theaters.

I know just what I want from them so it doesn't usually take me long to dial them in.

I am not sure what you are asking about the price, but I would guess that they are considered a good deal in their price range because so many places have them.

edit- just noticed where this was posted. my opinion is probably better considered for a higher level Lounge rig, or a lower level Lab rig.

Nice units and you can get them used for a good price.

I use the M-One XL.  I did quite a bit of research when I purchased it several years ago.  For live sound (in the ~4-500 price range), I don't think you can touch it.  It is close to much more expensive units in quality at a much lower price.

The Lexicon 550 is the closest competitor, but it is no where near as warm or versatile in my experience.

I have friends that have done more recent comparisons who assure me that the M-One XL is still unbeatable in that price range.

You can pick one up used for ~270-320 (ebay has several at this price range right now).

Since the M-One XL has both reverb and delay, I haven't needed the D-Two delay; however, I know some people that prefer to use the entire reverb engine without any delay and use the delay as a separate unit for better sound (I don't believe it is possible to hear the difference live IMHO).

The M1 and later the M1XL can be found in most rigs of any size it seems. I carry both in mine and have been happy for many years, MOST of the time. In the price range I don't think there is a better reverb. If you're willing to spend more though the M2 or 3000 is the way to go.

What I don't like about the M1s is that the two engines' presets have to be stored and recalled as a pair (unless I was missing something - TC manuals suck).  You can get a used M2000 for $400, and its engines can be saved and recalled independently.
