Had the pleasure to use the Universal Audio (Teletronix) LA2A and the solid-state later version LA3A at Woodstock Studios back in the 90's. I've just pulled up the modelled plug-ins from UAD and put them up against some old audio files printed through the original hardware - OMG!
Universal Audio's Digital arm has produced a series of hardware emulations that are quite frankly, unbelievable. In A-B tests I can't tell the difference. Digital has finally arrived!
