    Fancy product video lol what a waste of time how come they didn't give us some actual examples? My guess is because it blows and yea it will match your BLUE RIG knobs YES! lmfao

    Yup, can't stand color anodizing... on anything. Always thought it looked cheap and tacky... like chrome.

    I agree, I wish everything was black as well. I followed the DIY color change for the RJ follow focus and instead of making it red, I made it black. I think black looks more professional out in the field rather than some anodized blue or red.

    Dont know if you guys watch the video closely, but in the images, it shows only up to +10 db..

    Now, i personally own a VMP and +20 and +10 is a big difference i think personally. Hmm.

    Just my 2 cents :/

    Or maybe im wrong. Where did you get the information that its actually +20 db, Emm?

    @Alksion - I was thinking the same thing. I wonder if they had that in mind when they pick that blue accent. Can't wait for emm to test it (hint hint). Even more awesome if Chad Johnson gave a review. C'mon Chad!

    I really like the layout of the buttons on the back. I hope it sounds good. I wish these companies would make their stuff all black.

    Do you think this is close to as good as the VMP? That +20db sounds sweet, but don`t know if it`s as good. You should test it emm, haha.
