    In which respects? Contrast? Even illumination?

    Beter control of contrast. I could not do 00 or 5+. The results were good with the color head but I liked the filters beter. I sold the head when my sons started useing the darkroom. I wanted to just start them on filters.

    I also had some problems doing split printing. I would move the head when I went from grade 0 to grade 5.

    This was my first enlarger. I bought it in 1976 and my kids are still useing it.

    Ah, good to know. I seldom use the extreme grades, so it might not be a problem in my case (in fact I print on graded paper a lot).

    Given that I've been printing with a Holga-like Vivitar enlarger (a nightmare to align) so far, anything sturdier and cleaner will be an improvement.

    I also want to start learning color printing (I got a Unicolor drum with motor base in the same deal), which should be a lot of messy fun.

    I think the 'light pipe' is a pretty good idea. Basically it replaces the traditional 'bounce the light off styrofoam' mixing box that is quite inefficient. When it came out I figured it was a pice of fiber optic cable with the fibers randomly dispersed from entrance to exit and would produce almost no light loss during the mixing process. But I have never seen one up close to confirm this.
