Right now I think it is up in the air. If you are *only* going to work on photo type prints from within Photoshop and only going to work with quadtones I think the R9 would be better. I'm still working with it to see how it does CMYK color prints and profiles but with quads it is definately a nicer option for manual separation and quads (not sure if it supports the 1200 yet though!). On the other hand, PressReady is a much more versatile product at a similar cost. You can't print an Illustrator file from the R9 unless you first import it into Photoshop -- and if you ever want to do anything at all like use a page layout program Press Ready is a better option. For the MIS quads the R9 is the better option but for the low gamut CMYK inks (which I am vastly interested in) Press Ready would seem to have a leading edge since it handles CMYK profiles quite grandly. So my wishy washy answer, I guess, is "It depends." I covered all the options and bought both. Then, of course, there is the Jon Cone R9 driver in the works as well.
