The top of the range Epson printers are not necessarily better than some of
the cheaper ones.

I use an Epson Stylus 1160 with Lyson small gamut ink sets, (Quad blacks are
good too). I know several professionals that use the same combination, and
the printer was not at all expensive. For the price of a top of the range
Epson you can buy two 1160's and many do. One for Colour and one for Small
Gamut or Quad Black inks.
