Hey all, First off I apologize in advance because this is post turns off topic from actual printing and more towards audio acoustics. But I'm looking to make an investment in a printer in general and just want to get some feedback to see if I feel like it's worthwhile. I'm most likely going to go with the Pro 9000 or 9500 mk II. I've seen print results from G.A.'s 9500 and they look fantastic. The superior (B&W) abilities intrigue me about the 9500, but the 9000 can be had for under $200 brand new locally. Haven't looked into the epsons, but not really sure that I even care enough to widen the search unless I can find a killer deal. So I'm planning on doing a variety of sizes of prints. Currently I just use a PIXMA MX882, which actually does a pretty decent job of 8x10/11.5 pictures, I've done a number and am quite satisfied. I'd like to do larger prints though and up the quality a bit. Some I'll frame in glass based frames for rooms in the house. But the more important thing I'm trying to do is do some canvas or non-reflective type material for my living room. For me this is actually an acoustic reflection reason, as I'm a die-hard 2-channel audio guy and want to dampen the room down as much as possible with a high amount of WAF (wife approval factor). I read some old threads where it sounds like people are doing this, but can anyone give me some more info or ideas about this. There are canvas deals out there all the time so it might just be more feasible for that room to do prints that way. Overall I'd like to do my own prints not for cost reasons but to be in charge of the creative process from start to finish. My general idea would be to do deep frames (1-1/2-2 inches?) and then put sound deadening foam or material behind that. Audiophile stores have a lot of these types of things but they are always just fabric and look pretty tacky, especially with their $100k 2 channel systems.
