    I voted for black - but they should also have black knobs on it too.

    IMHO, YMMV.

    I will buy the black because :
    _ black is rock n roll
    _ i suspect that it is more easy to read white labels on black in the dark, but with the lights perhaps i'm wrong.

    It seems that with daylight silver version looks better.

    I didn't vote because they both have their own appeal.

    I like the silver because the brighter color seems more energetic and lively, but the black looks more professional and rugged.

    If I were in a Djent band I'd definitely go with black though.. :aok

    It would be easier if there was already a black version we could look at

    I like the looks of it as it is. Looks original

    All black, murdered out... I'd love to see a shot of the black one with all the LEDs on

    The Black looks pretty mean, I like it. But the silver in your second shot looks very classy. I could not possibly wait another 4-6 weeks for the Black so I just went for the silver.

    When I saw the black the first time, I preferred it. The black seems to expose how many buttons are actually on the device in a way the white doesn't seem to reveal

    Black knobs could be cool. Black face/black knobs/red LEDs would be evil cool.

    Contact with Kemper support said "about six weeks" and given the delays of the initial box, I didn't know if waiting 6 weeks would mean even longer. They didn't even have a way to place an order for it yet.

    Then I started not to really care and I still kinda like the oscilloscope look of the white one - l looks like a piece of lab equipment.

    I've written here on TGP that stuffing this user interface into a 2/3 space rack mount is going to require some significant compromises. I'm sure they can pull it off... they've done it before with the Access Virus line: rack, mini, full keyboard, desktop, and Snow. In general, fewer dedicated knobs means more menus to navigate.

    Of these two existing designs, the original. I don't like the specific black design. The brighter one looks retro-futuristic.
