It's hard to imagine that Kevin would just close the doors without a contingency of some sort. Museums, photographers, graphic artists, etc. worldwide using his unique products must have generated significant sales. He may have sold the business to a company like Eiko, although they told me they no longer sell SoLux products. Time will tell, but I wouldn't be surprised if some announcement will be made soon.

It's hard not to imagine further assumptions on your part. Again, do you need his email address to get to the bottom of this off topic part of the facts provided? Rhetorical question; clearly it is easer and gains you more needed 'attention' posting speculations about Kevin and his business, CRI etc, then finding anything factual or on topic to post here.

I've used Solux in the past, but find this companies LED lights to be far superior on many levels. Its a deep website with many different product applications so spend sometime delving into it. I use them exclusively now in my studio and love them.

https://www.waveformlighting.com

Hope this helps.
These are very impressive in terms of the measurement data (and they dim perfectly).
Here's the data. The one failure is simply due to the distance I'm measuring from the light which is ceiling mounted 12 feet up. The spectrum and correlation with D50 is in the green (pass).  $159 for six, but I'm happy with the product, very impressive!

It appears I've wandered into some kind of urinating contest.
More than urination :P

You've got to love the behaviour of someone who about once a month walks into the room, takes a dump on the carpet and departs, never to be seen again until next month.

One month later, agenda ignored. Bravo LuLa members, bravo!

Anybody else have information to help me and others find high-quality replacements for SoLux?

Review of why if you can get them, you'll want to stick with Solux bulbs. And why someone hyping Sylvania True Wave "Daylight" (that failed) LEDs shouldn't be taken too seriously.
