When I read Thom's message, I assumed Thom was looking for a dual purpose

"I am looking for a good printer for both digital negatives and for normal
photo printing duties, both color and B&W."

If the emphasis for quality is on digital negatives, I would suggest sticking
with the Ultrachrome ink set first and see if that does not serve him well.
As I mentioned, the Ultrachrome inkset is very good for digital negatives. I
suggested the "black ink only" trick because it might give his wife a more
than acceptable black and white print for her purposes—without changing inks or
trying a RIP. The RIP might be something they could explore later if they are
not satisfied with the results, since it is pretty cheap ($50) for a RIP.

I sort of lean towards keeping it simple—at least at first.
