They absolutely are the best kept secret out there. I own a Remo kit myself and have played them for years. The Accousticon 516 back in the day was used for both the Bravo and all of the master series. The only difference is that the Bravo kit had horrible hardware and the masters had so-so hardware. That's the only chink in the armor for those old remo kits. Hardware. But I would beef up the hardware and customize it because those shells with decent heads them sound flat out uncredible. They are also remarkably easy to tune. I wouldn't worry about the exact model as the shells are all the same on those old kits. They didn't change anything at all until the gold Crowns were introduced which produce a little bit warmer sound. And if you haven't had the opportunity to check out the new Gold Crowns by all means do so. They are incredible.
