Epsons print pretty pictures using the RGB drivers, but don't delude 
yourself; the results of printing quality RGB *or* CMYK images through a good 
RIP is definately superior. This is not due to extra data from 32 bit versus 
24 bit files directly, but from the color control available through CMYK 
profiling. However I have yet to see any specs that claim the new StylusRIP 
is a true CMYK RIP, and without that feature the advantages disappear.
