I believe the latest edition of EFI XL uses the iteration process of reading a sequence of calibration charts to match the inkjet printer(9800) to the target(press or ISO or TR001 or 4 or what ever your choice may be). This is also the method that CGS Oris Color Tuner uses and GMG. It depends on what you want to pay for, learn and implement.(How close do you want the match)?
On the other hand the Colorburst RIP can be calibrated/linerized and ICC profiles applied as per the original versions of EFI.
EFI, superior color? I can't say either way. I'd ask for samples or demos.
If you are looking for a good deal and a good set of color matches based on Epson papers with the 9800, consider the "Professional Edition Stylus Pro 9800" that includes the ColorBurst RIP and a network card for the printer.
Regarding spectro's, if you are using any calibration process that requires a multiple of chart readings(iteration) you may want to consider the Gretag IcColor or the X-rite DTP-70. Any single strip or "spot" reader is going to take for-ever to read in multiple charts. Stop and Read = SLOW?
The Monaco and dtp 41 would be all you need to get started with the ColorBurst/Epson 9800 system. The ColorBurst system provided through Epson is also supported through Epson.
