What is AudioWizard?

It's a five band equalizer that offers four modes of control.  Those familiar with the existing AudioWizard app will be thinking of the Android or Windows software, however here the software is built right into the monitor's own firmware, so it will work with any device plugged in via HDMI or DisplayPort! Plug in any PC, notebook, smartphone, tablet, even a Blu-ray or DVD player and you'll get SonicMaster and AudioWizard benefits.

What colors does it come in?

Gold and Silver, however please note that all three colors are subject to availability.
