I would argue that the Digitech RP355 is the equivalent of three or so really good analog delays (meaning delays produced by analog circuitry). It's got (modeled) analog, tape, and EchoPlex delays, and they all sound different and very good.  It's also got a bunch of good reverbs, and most people like reverb on their sound at least once in a while.  

The RP155 and 255 also have the same analog delays, and the 255 has the same tape delay.   But you only get the EchoPlex model in the RP355.
