(And the post-SPX90 SPX units have a semi-hidden second layer, where you can insert some filters and such, to more precisely tune your fake room.)
I've never thought of them as deep or spacious, but that doesn't sound like a drawback for what you're trying to do.
I also dig "rolling my own" with several short delay lines, feeding into themselves and each other. One tip I use very often: crank the feedback WAY up and adjust the delay time 'til the resonation is in key with the song. Then back off on the feedback. Adds a subtle reinforcement of the song's key, and generally sounds better to me. You can also introduce some modulation, if you're going for "shimmer."
I recommend 100% wet. Although you can get some metallic comb-filter stuff by using some dry signal in there, too. So maybe that would work for your sound.

Another trick I really love is sending an effect back not to the return, but to another mixer channel. That way you get that post-EQ for free, plus you can add all the other effects you got in your send / return loops. Also, try to back down the decay of your reverb (or feedback of your delay), and create the feedback loop yourself by sending the return channel back to itself with the respective send. You can make every boring delay sound totally awesome that way.
Are you looking for hardware only? I think the Valhalla Vintage Verb would be awesome for what you're looking for... Cheap as chips as well.
