Print quality on the Epson paper looks good but the studio staff prefers the Ilford pearl paper. We just received the 24" Ilford roll and I'll add another impression of the printer after we have been able to run that paper.
We opted for the dye system as opposed to the Ultra-chrome because of the color gamut range. Frankly the images from that printer rival anything I have seen from a print shop. Sorry I waited so long to buy it!
