I have and use an Epson 1200. It's very good, but I'm not entirely happy with
it - there are some sharp discontinuities in the gamut, and skin tones can
sometimes appear wrong. But I am also uncertain about how halftone screening
for repro might interfere with the dither pattern.

The files are profiled, as is my whole workflow. Lightjet seem to have a good
rep in the US, but I've never seen one nor heard of anyone in UK offering them,
though Durst have a similar technology but I don't know of anyone using it.
