"It is the best DVM ever produced",

Some might say that the Fluke 8508A and Datron 1271 and 1281 at least give the HP3458A fair competition.

If you are looking at the Keithley DMMs, you might consider the model 2010.  It is as good as the 2001 for DC Volts, but much cheaper.

Why would you want to use ANY of those DVMs?  With just a little patience you can buy an 8.5 digit HP3458A on Ebay for under $3000.  It is the best DVM ever produced,  and likely ever will be produced.  The design is over 25 years old,  and is at the limit of what can be achieved by silicon based technology.  
For under $200 you can easily score an HP 3457A which is 6.5-7.5 digits.
