    If that's still around in a few weeks, bring it to the UKLEM. A) It would be good for the shows I'm bringing and B) It could become checked baggage.

    No its' a Spectrum. It's a much higher quality model than the Clubmax's. The cost of building these is why they're now only offered in the 20W+ range. Much heavier casings, Thor Lab mounts, quality dichros, I could go on...

    The fact this is essentially new, makes it a very rare beast. (PS my video appears to have disappeared, the link is there so maybe the host is down. Hopefully it should re-appear).

    Lovely machine, but for that price i'd rather buy a new projector from Kvant or Live lasersystems.
    I liked the sentence it has never left the house though. Didn't you bring this to the Showlem that Jem organised ?
    I didn't fail !
    I just found out 10,000 ways that didn't work.

    That's fine. The Spectrum is a different quality altogether to the Clubmax's. There was around a 6K price difference new between the Spectrum and Clubmax when they were sold back to back. Clubmax were built cheaper to take on the lower powered Chinese dominated end of the market, which is why Spectrums are still made but only in the 20W+ range where there's less Chinese price competition. Sometimes, you get what you pay for. It's also factory customised by Kvant themselves making it totally unique.

    No that was a Laserworld laser and many many years before I bought the Kvant which was a recent purchase:
