Check out the impressive effects this powerful scanner provides with 15 gobos plus open and 15 colors including white and 5 mixed, as well as a split color option. With ultrafast operation, effortless portability, and an easily replaceable lamp, the SCX500 is the best deal in its class. Most entry-level effect lamps have a 50-200-hour life; the SCX500's lamp lasts at least 500. Also, it has no duty cycle, so you don't need to stop the show to cool down your lights. Comes in a durable, stylish, symmetrical housing complete with a hanging bracket you can use as a carrying handle. All Mania products are officially ETL, cETL, and CE approved so you can rely on the fixtures' safety and performance.

Comments about Martin Professional Mania SCX500 Scanner:

ok, the Martin SCX500 is awsome! i love it, its cheap in price and packed full of stuff. this scanner does more than most scanners. I use mine everyday, and its 500hr bulb is bright as heck. All i have to say is get one, it is so worth it. Thanx martin!


Best Scanner I've used yet!

Comments about Martin Professional Mania SCX500 Scanner:

Okay I'd first like to give a hand to Martin! One heck of a scanner at an awesome price. The SCX500 draws less power than the scan250's I was using. And they seem to be brighter, the gobos are extremely focused and clear. The colors are bright and the built in stand alone mode is out of this world. I have been through many of ADJ's lighting products. I would never buy anything but Martin ever again. It is worth the price! I use my lights 2-4 times a week year after year. The demands on professional lighting equipment are extremely intense. If you plan on being a professional DJ, charging professional prices... Then you better be buying professional equipment. Get the Martin SCX500's!

Comments about Martin Professional Mania SCX500 Scanner:

Don't be fooled by the seemingly meagre 150w rating (I was at first, and initially went with another brand by wattage alone, until two out of three of theirs failed in less than a week, leading me back to Martin) this is as bright(er) a fixture as comparitive 250w efforts, and is truly well-built. I mean it's just a delight to own, even not plugged in. I expect these units will last years of heavy use. Even the mounting hardware is quality anodised, not just painted. The panels aren't just screen printed...The sound-to light is superior, having the best musically interprative display I've seen. Particularly nice is how the beams sort of rest, but sway on quiet, like it's still "alive". Very cool. The projection quality and optics are stunning. VERY fast mirrors. Work well in smoke of course. Seem to cut through just a little better too. Probably the optics, not just brightness.If you're looking at scanners, for just a little extra cash this unit is pro-quality and has features they don't mention in the sales specs (dunno why!) such as gobo ROTATE, and lamp DIM!!! The nice thing is that you can have four for the power rating of only about two apparently similar scanners, make as much light, generate less heat, and it comes with the standard 500 hour (yes FIVE-HUNDRED hour bulb - not just 50 hours like in others) and save nearly 40 lbs of truss weight! Oh, and that 500 hour bulb is only about 50% more expensive for ten times the life! I'm converted... Get Martin, they think about you, and it'll be the smartest intelligent thing you ever did!
