The EMT 251 is an early digital reverb and multi-effects unit introduced as a continuation of the highly revered model 250.
Unveiled as a continuation of the legendary EMT 250, model 251 added even more features including extended frequency response, additional parameter controls, more programs and an LCD display.
There were only 250 EMT 250's made, but the unit was soon updated to the 251, which was a similar design with an LCD display and a larger feature set. The 251 offered extended frequency response, additional parameter controls and more programs. These early digital units are considered some of the best sounding artificial reverb units ever made-quite a legacy for anything considered early digital technology. Both units easily fetch over $10,000 on the used market.
