Do old EH Memory Man Deluxe pedals sound better?

Electro-Harmonix produces a reissue version of its Memory Man Deluxe analog delay pedal. This pedal has true bypass, so I figured the reissue was the one to buy.


But some claim older MM pedals sound better than the reissues. Different chip is supposed to make a noticeable, even important difference. OTOH I've also heard that the built-in transformers on the old ones add an annoying hum/buzz.


Is this true?


Should I be shopping for an old one (which I could mod for true bypass) because it sounds great? Or a new one because it has true bypass already, no transformer buzz, and has same great sound?
