    Yeah... I'm glad I've waited this long to get a moving head(s). I considered the Chauvet 350 LED but always felt there would be slight regret later. The QSpot 260 always seemed not bright enough to me. I'd rather buy once, cry once when making a DJ equipment purchase; I wonder what the price on this unit will be.

    7 10Watt LED's is not going to be brighter than a single source 70Watt LED. I guess they did this to prolong the life. Because if you lose one 10 Watt LED you probably won't realize it, and it then won't cost them anything for repair if you don't sent it in.


    PS. It does look pretty nice though, but have you seen or heard about the Torrent F5? http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=458642934147450

    The Torrent 5F warrants a long look. Special pricing available.

    I'm honestly not surprised and expected Chauvet to come out with a successor(s) to the Q-spot Series.

    Let face it, the 160 and 260 are few years old already and are slowly becoming outdated in terms of LED technology and optics.

    I question the use of multiple 10 watt LEDs though.

    DJStevieRay, even if one of the multiple LEDs did give out, I'm sure there would be a noticeable decrease in brightness, even if only slight.

    I will 3rd the Torrent F5 by Blizzard. Even the Torrent 90s are good. I have the 90's and they are brighter than any other LED heads out there (with the exception of the F5.) The F5 is a 150w Single LED source and is a faster moving head. As Bill said, it is worth a look. still on the pricey side, but as others have stated, better to buy once and cry once (at the price), then buy and cry every time you take it out.

    Plus it has a few new features. And is now the most fully featured led moving on the market.

    I found some Youtube Videos from InfoComm:

    They look pretty sweet. I might just hold out on buying the Intimidator Spot 350's if these are around the same price range.
