    Without knowing how much you want to spend I am going suggest an Epson 1400 or 2800. Both printers take their new "K" inks. These new inks make the colors of prints so much richer than anything I have seen in a consumer version.

    Would you by chance mean the Epson Stylus Photo R2400? The R2400, R3800, R4800, R7800 & R9800 are the only current models that use the K3 inks.
