Wonder how many years Spirits will continue - I know the imaging head has a limited life and I was at Kodak many years ago (2002?) and they were running their last batch of their imaging heads.  Did Thompson / Phillips / DFT make any spares?

I also wonder about the cost of ownership, power consumption and cooling are a big cost with a telecine, although in the colder climates I guess it could heat the facility as well, the Aga TK?

Miss my old Y-front but not the stress of wondering what tricks it might play on me.
