I may get reprimanded, but I think the 1160 would be a great
machine for quads OR archival color.  I have it and the 1200
and the differences are very subtle.  Also, it will use the
same 3rd party cartridges as the 1520, so no waiting for
availability.  Caveat - one would most certainly want some
sort of profiling software to use with it.

Happy New Year,
