they are designed to convert anything to anything. they dont care how "obsolete" the signal is, and they do everything that framemeister thing can do - and then some.
however, what they dont have are the typical oversaturated colors which are characteristic for most consumer grade video equipment :) it might just be a matter of adjusting a few settings to get the same (probably better) image from an imagepro, if what you are after are those screaming colors.
the problem here really is that some things you might perceive as "better" is really just what you are used to from what you have seen for decades. eg i have heard quite often from various people that the picture of a sony pvm monitor looks "bad" to them - when in objective terms its really much better than what most other (consumer) monitors can deliver. (for example because the typical "scanlines" are much more visible on the pvm than they are on eg a 1701).

The shot behind is a Faroudja processor displaying 240p, that is quoted as costing $9000USD when new. You may dispute the use of the word "better", but whilst I'm sure it handles video extremely well, I'm confident it's not what most people want to see from pixel graphics.
And thanks Deev, knowing a scener has purchased means more to me than google recommendations.
- Not only for C64's, but also for all the other machines (mostly generation 1 to 6 consoles) are there any options (cables, etc) from Solaris that I should consider a must buy, or at least a recommended purchase alongside so I can piggyback them saving extra shipping or third party?
- For recording, can I match the framemeister to an legato? (I recently got the version with component cables, but am assuming have the framemeister inbetween the source will improve recording? please correct me if wrong).
And hardware mods..
- Also assuming proper RGB mods where available are still going to give a better feed into the framemeister as apposed to composite right?
- And c64 specific lumafix, I'm guessing this one is no longer relevant when using the framemeister, correct?
