Your opinion: Reverbs from Kontakt or in DAW?

This is a question especially for folks who run LARGE orchestral / perc templates:

I'm running DP8 and using Altiverb (mainly) as my Reverb source, running in DP.

I have 3 outboard machines (2 Mac minis, 1 PC) running VE Pro (and Bidule on the PC). I'm running mainly Cinesamples (in Kontakt) and G-Player (for old Giga sounds).

Aside from the routing issues (which I've figured out), does anyone have an opinion as to which would SOUND better - running all instruments through a bunch of Alitverb instances in DP, or using the "convolution reverbs" built into the Cinesamples libraries (e.g. Cine Brass, Wind, Perc, Drums of War etc).

Obviously, it's easier to print (with reverb) to separate tracks if I use the 'onboard' verbs within the libraries.

My question is, with all else being equal, which do you think would SOUND better: using ONLY Altiverb (and turning all the library verbs OFF), or using the verbs that come with the libraries? (most of which sound pretty decent). This way I guess there would be a mixture of different verbs, which, while hard to make uniform-sounding, might actually be a good thing for the overall mix...

Any opinions or experience with this issue?
