    DR Prints compared to drum scan print-advice pls!!

    Try making a direct print (contact print) and see if the sharpness is there. Depending on the answer you can exclude some causes of softness

    Depends what you mean by soft since we don't have the images in question to look at or some sort of baseline to consider. We can't tell if some shortfall in equipment (e.g. poorly stabilised enlarger can cause blurry prints due to its fan vibrating the head) or technique is causing softness.

    If there's any unsharp-masking (USM) applied to the hybrid process then clearly that will look superior. You can of course make a physical unsharp mask for your wet printing and achieve the same excellent result, but it's a tad laborious.

    Do you see a difference in resolution or acutance?
