Just like ETC’s Desire Lustr+ luminaire, the Source Four LED Lustr+ offers a complete palette of colors, thanks to the Selador x7 Color System™.

Source Four LED Tungsten and Daylight produce maximum brightness at the respective warm (3000K) and cool white (5600K) color temperatures.

Each offers the same projection-quality beam.
