Diffuser as I use a Durst M605 Color for both 24x36 and 6x6 formats.
In Holland: diffusion, a Rollei 6x7 enlarger with a colorhead.
I use it for 135, 6x6 and 6x7 B&W, in the future I might add a condensor aswell......
I use both. Primarily the condenser, but some negs just look better enlarged with the diffusion head.

Diffuser It's a Durst 605 dichroic head. Main neg size is 35mm but I do occasionally use 6x6( Agfa Isolette 1) which the 605 will cover
I use both depending on the film material and subject matter. From 35mm to 4 X 5. Chromes and B&W.

Are you using a condenser, diffuser or both, and which is your main negative format?
I appreciate all answers. The results are important to guide some research of mine.
Thanks in advance.

I use an LPL D6700 Diffuser colour head for 35mm.
I use a LPL 670 VCCE - I guess that's neither condenser nor diffuser.

Condenser. Omega Pro Lab 4x5. I use it mainly to print 120 TMY-2 / TMX / TX negatives and 35mm TMX / TMY-2.
