"32-bit/96kHz processing." Looks very interesting. It also has delay built in like the RV3.

From the boss page:

The Most Powerful BOSS Reverb Pedal Yet
The power and versatility of BOSS's 500 Series digital effects pedals come to reverb in the RV-500 multi-effects pedal. Loaded to the brim with gorgeous-sounding reverb effects, the 12 onboard reverb types mean tonal adventurers will never run out of inspiration. And editing these sounds can be a straightforward affair or take tone tweakers down a deep well of options and sonic perfection. BOSS has a long legacy of lauded reverb effects, such as their RV-5's legendary Modulate mode and their COSM modeling of famed Fender spring reverb tones. The RV-500 is like your own personal library of all of these sounds in a single stompbox.

12 inspiring reverb effects
Reverb is an absolute necessity on most electric guitar players' pedalboards these days. From covering ambient passages to the drippy tones only achieved through a spring-like setting, you're guaranteed to be called upon to wrangle these sounds. This makes the RV-500 an ideal partner for stage, studio, and home use. You'll find everything from warm-sounding room reverbs for a bit of extra ambience to highly effected SFX and shimmer sounds, all being processed through the pedal's astounding 32-bit/96kHz.

RV-500 gives you stunningly high-quality reverb.

5 With an easily readable screen and an independent [TAP/CTL] switch, it delivers both high
functionality as well as ease of use during live performances.

I tired the Boss RV-500 Reverb Pedal and the Boss MD-500 Modulation Pedal with my Franklin and the Quilter Micro Block 45. They both sound outstanding. It looks like Santa will bring me both Wink
