Is Spyder3Print compatible with the Epson Stylus CX6000 printer?

Spyder3Print and the Datacolor 1005 spectro (which are the printer profiling portion of the Spyder3Studio bundle) will be able to nicely profile your CX6000, within its gamut limits (see comments below on 4 color vs. 6 or 8 color printing technology)

The CX6000 isn't classified as a photo printer; it has only 4 inks: C, M, Y, and a single black. What this means is that you won't be able to achieve the kind of fine photographic color gradations with it that you'd get with a 6 color (or more) ink printer. Custom profiling should improve the overall color of your output and give you close screen-to-print matching, but it also can't make up for the fact that you're using a printer that has only 4 inks. (Or, another way of putting this is: Spyder3Print and the Datacolor spectro can do as good a job of custom profiling your printer, if not better, than any other profiling package out there, and at an extremely reasonable price. But it can't make your 4 color ink output on this printer look as potentially good as the output on a 6 color printer, or an 8 color printer. It can only work with how the printer prints.)
