Audiofanzine FR's review

(Originally written by djtnt25/translated from Audiofanzine FR)
I just got two Acquila Starway scans.

Very good value for money.

Good lighting power, clean gobo effects (considering the price). The mirror doesn't respond very precisely to the pan and tilt controls, but they do their job ok considering the price.

The unit has two wheels, one for gobos and one for colors.

Gobo and color effects are quite clean.

As a summary, it's a very good small scan for people on a limited budget!!!!

And you get two years warranty.

- Two weeks

- Imprecise Tilt and pan settings.

- I compared them with the Ghost Tec-scan I own and there is a huge difference.

Ghost has a much better manufacturing quality, the gobos look nicer, the lighting intensity is also higher.

Good value for money for mobile DJ applications if you don't have much money, but bad value for money if you want a good-quality product.

I wouldn't buy it again.

Buy a higher-range product, you won't regret it.

* For how long have you been using it?

2 years ago now I use the scan and I have nothing to reproach them for now is a good product.

* Did you try many other models before getting this one?

Yes Scan of Martin and others, but only in club or mobile disco for large parties

* What thing do you like most/least about it?

the most: Gobos varied sufficiently clear and bright, a proper scope and a good dynamic managed by the internal microphone handy when you want to take a control light for small parties.

Cons: bin for the moment nothing has been reported so the bulb heats but it is inevitable considering that the scan of entry-level he does not like being switched on and off too often into the evening.

* What is your opinion about the value for the price?

Rather to correct for my use I took advantage of a promotion in pack 2 for the price of one.

* Knowing what you know now, would you make the same choice?

Yes, but I'll buy 4 for a small structure that is just ideal 2 but with 4 Scan manages to make a nice plume of color and effect.
It is relatively complete with the opportunity to run DMX or the synchronized master / slave mode.
I give the note of 7 / 10 because so let's aim is still a nice little product that is attractive to small business or for when we started with too much money but still do not Scan pro at Martin.

Hello everybody was 4 years I use this produit.j 'have two scans aquila
most gobos colors and logos. precise, its weight.
the less the heat of the bulbs. I have to change a light bulb packages.
more or less fluid in the movements
value for price a bit expensive. that's my opinion!
I change with experience way. aquérir with the scan lamp msd 250 starway the bomb right certainly nothing to see a wide range above I go for jb dynamo system. in short, a good product for beginners but for large users ( bulbs predict in advance).
with many products starway I will avoid buying this product line.
See for yourself!!

- How long have you use it?

4 from 4 months, 2 for 1 year.

- What is so special that you like most and least?

Lightweight, fast, reliable, bright ...

- Have you tried many other models before buying it?

I do not know much but I have seen a lot and it is clear that besides the series PAT, they are really great!

-How do you price / quality ratio?

Level quality / price ratio is hard to beat with a separate scan DMX 2 wheels less than 150 euros!

- With experience, you do again this choice? ...

Yes, truly without hesitation, they are animals that work well and are very well ventilated => Noise, but it's nothing compared to a Mac DJ Scan which has no less than three fans!

In short a nice little scan to start and run parties up to 250 people!

I come from a aquérir aquila not long ago. Personally, the brightness not bad for a room sonbre, gobos and colors nikel but the mirrors are slow compared to the PAT100. They take time to position themselves and are noisy

Witjeje's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

I use four scans Aquila 3 years controlled by the console Shamman starway home. I am delighted with the result, except that a small temperature offset of the color of a scan, despite a change in the lamp. In short, to summarize, c a scan light, little emcombrant, that is right for mobile use. For a scan with two wheels discociées and less than € 200, do not hesitate. Today I would like to complete my fleet by acquiring four new Aquila.

I use it for about 2 years and I think I never change the bulb and then just one time. I use it throughout the night.
This scanner is simple but it works well trs, he has a good brightness.
I never tried other model before I just saw the other scanner that can be more prcis the beam.
Trs Qualitprix good value! It is really cheap and work well with trs in addition it has 4 channels DMX is not often that price!
I would, no problem STARWAY products (I test the lyre which are well-trs)
