Portico 5043 and Amek CIB compression comparison

Hi guys! Here is a short video about Rupert Neve Portico 5043 and Amek CIB compressor in action.

What do you think about these compressors in Mastering applications?

'Chain: Logic Pro 9, Eq Maselec MEA-2, compressor, Limiter Waves L2 Ultramaximizer'

I hve 9098 , cib and 5043...9098 very transparent compression...amek cib sounds similiar but has a leeeetle color it is stone quiet as well..of course they are more similiar than anything...5043 has more color obviously and has two modes...9098 os best at very light ratios and thresholds....def like squashing transients with 9098 as its smooth in that aspect on snare as it pushes it back in the room nicely...i do like them all

I like the CIB compressor on snare drum ALOT But I can't imagine it as a mastering comp.
