    Looks great!

    Jake, do we know if it has one power cord, 2 channels, dimming, dimensions, and a built in controller or some sort of time keeping. And will it take a Kessil AP700?

    There is some information on their German website and the English website.
    It does have two cords.

    It looks like they have brackets that could hold the ap700.

    Here's a video, although it's in German, it shows it in pretty good detail.

    When talking to Giesemann at this past Macna they had mentioned that this was on the way. I love their fixtures thou I am not a fan of LED's tried them and wasted the money.:) I dont think you could fit a Kessil A700 down between the two T5's The kessil is too big

    So does the 500m fit tight against the leds like radeons? The 575 seems to have large gaps between the T5s and led units

    I'll be pairing the stellar with the Vervve next month over my new IM 112gal 3x3. I can't wait.
