Default Epson 1500W Colour Gamut ?

Hi all

Anyone know what colour gamut the Epson 1500W can print to.

I know it's a low end printer so suspect it's not up to matching ProPhoto, but does it come anywhere near Adobe1998 or would a printer at that end of the quality range only manage something closer to sRGB.

I have a fully profiled system and the results look to be a very good match to my monitor but that only covers sRGB so I suspect the printer is also only just covering sRGB as the results are so close.

Am I correct or should the printer cover a wider colour gamut.

I have searched Epsons site and googled this but found no information suitable to this printer.

Thanks for any help with this

I can't answer what color gamut it can print to but I had similar questions when trying to dial in my prints.
My printer is different then yours and I use a Mac but I edit in pro photo, send to printer and lchoose apple's ColorSync software. When I select vendor matching it never comes out right. From what I understand vendor matching does not take the printer or paper type into consideration.
Trial & error worked the best for me.
Good luck.
