I'm in the process of placing an order with an Astera distributor for a new set of 8 Titan tubes, but.. this would be split between me and my partner. The cost of 8 * AX-1 tubes with a charging case, and the wireless DMX module is pretty close to what half of the same kit costs with the Titans. I'm wondering, would 4 Titan tubes (this is what I'd usually have unless a prior arrangement was made) with a noticeable increase in output / brightness be better than owning 8 of the AX-1s? I primarily shoot narrative / scripted shorts and once in a while a tiny feature. I love my Quasar that I currently have but I'm trying to reason what's the better purchase here. Are there enough advantages to the Titan tubes to go with 4 tubes at any given moment rather than 8 noticeably less powerful tubes?
