It was apparent to me that because he was looking at a Topaz, not a Topaz X, and a TP, not a My9, that he's looking at older used machines. Is there a used Sony in a similar price range to the other two that will outperform them?

Not much, actually, but that was by choice. We use the Quads for short runs and when we want to get set up and torn down quickly. The Topaz was purchased specifically to give us the ability to get through our larger, regular jobs faster than we can

ET, With due regards to your '7 years experience', I must say that in my 11 years experience, this is the first time I am hearing about head replacement on a Topaz. On the Eclipse it is easy for an operator to make a mistake by moving the head manua
