I have a MPX-1 and a RSP-550. Though it must not be 1.04 because I don't have black hole. I like the reverb on the MPX-1 better, but everything else on the RSP-550 is fantastic. Mainly use the SDD-320 modified preset and analog chorus. Given the choice I'd pick the RSP every time, probably...
...some different 106 sounds, e.g. bass, and match the volumes better.
