I am looking for a 13" or 17" wide carriage printer and it must excel with sepia toned B&W portraits. Suggestions or recommendations?

To some extent the quality of your print is determined by the quality of the paper you can afford.....a printer like the R3800 will give you a lot of options in this respect.

Having said that...prints from my Canon Pr9000 on Ilford Pearl are pretty good. It is difficult to get a neutral black from this printer...but you don't seem to want that anyway. Also, this is a dye printer...you might want the archival qualities of pigment ink.

If you get an Epson, don't forget to download Eric Chan's B&W profiles. I get excellent results using them on my Epson 3800. http://people.csail.mit.edu/ericchan/dp/Epson3880/abwprofiles.html
