Thanks Jeff, I'm starting to come around to the strength-in-numbers approach too.  Gotta keep reminding myself that it's perfectly OK to have two or more fixtures pointed at the same area to increase brightness, even from multiple angles, without all the resulting comb-filtering that I have to worry about in audio.  Good to know about your par38 vs par64 rentals, thanks for that info. 

Good thoughts on the truss warming too, although that's likely where my Dotz Pars would end up before these next fixtures if anything.  But yes I'm trying to make this a logical, flexible addition to my inventory that will allow me to offer a basic stage wash package to add to the audio gigs I'm doing now, and give me something to practice chases/scenes/real world applications until such time that I'm ready to take the plunge into eye-candy stuff and the controllers that would go with it.  Hopefully by then I'll have more time under my belt dealing with deployment logistics that I can make a wise choice when that time comes.

Thanks everyone!  Anyone know a good Chauvet or Elation dealer in Western Canada?

I'm not sure if you found the answer to this question yet, but I live in Victoria, and purchase pretty much everything now from https://www.avshop.ca/. They carry both Chauvet and Elation, and they are very easy to work with!  :)

Hi Chris, thanks for the tip! 

I was hoping for someone out west so I could demo some options. I too shop with avshop, mostly so I donít have to deal with customs hassles. Theyíve been great, even when I had a box of cables stolen off my doorstep. They were quick to send another shipment while I made my claim with the courier.

....and no I havenít settled on anything yet.  Spent the money I had set aside instead on some trunks, a new rack, and a new mixer (whoops) so Iím back to saving.  Seriously considering the Elation Fuze Z120IP, 2 per side.  Iíll update this thread as I go.
