Hi, we're looking to get two moving lights for our venue. It's a 600 seat auditorium, with about a throw distance of 30 feet from the pole to the front of the stage (50 feet to the back). Our budget is up to $1000 for each one. At the least, it has to move and change colors. Gobos don't matter. 5-pin or 3-pin doesn't matter either; we'll find a way to do both.
I've looked at the Chauvet MiNSpot and MinWash, but I haven't heard much good reviews about them. I've also looked at the Martin Mania SCX-600 DMX Scanner (ELC-5) and the American DJ DJ Scan 250 EX 250W DMX Scanner, and despite looking very similar, there is a $600 dollar difference. This has made me nevous. Does anyone have any suggestions?
