    Here's the joke of the day...get ready for it...go!

    While I do see the practical uses for it in small DJ setups, the only thing that I can think of when I see this is the showgun...and that's like comparing a derringer to a bazooka. The derringer has its uses at close range, but the bazooka will take you out long distance!

    *After laughing for 5 minutes*

    I...oh wow...oh lol...this is why I like AMDJ, they always do hilarious things.

    I think, what we need to do, is get one of those, and then aim a Showgun at it. We shall then take pictures of the destruction and have many a good laugh. Muwahaha.

    Put it a few feet away from a showgun, put the showgun at full and zoomed all the way down, and the AMDJ showsquirt will melt!

    No, for track lighting, it's gotta be small and quiet. the Martin smartMAC comes out in march 08. That's what I'm talkin' about.

    My office has some i-cove doing under shelf and ceiling lighting -- in addition to some Elation dimmers controlling the over heads, desk lamps, juice cans w/ gels for corner up-lights, etc. I can go from hand-drafting work lights to acid-trip in no time at all. Using a silly chauvet DJ controller mounted on the desk -- works for me!

    Am working on a concept for install that my company is bidding on to make a whole house DMX controlled -- Pharos architectural dimming, CKs up the wazoo (icove, color blasts, etc). The great thing is the house was just built and has 1200amp 3-phase service coming on so there is NO WAY we are running out of power.

    Unfortunately, the only thing they're good for is more ADJ crap.

    The only thing I've ever been happy with from them is their o-clamp. I use them for pinspots and other stuff that weighs less than 5 pounds. Elation, OTOH is doing quite a bit better. And I expect that to continue as Eric Loader has taken over.
