The company that purportedly took them over (hexarc) seems to have removed their web site. So, sadly the bulbs left online may very well be the last of the breed.

On the bright side hamilton 14ks are quite nice, if a little bluer.

I'm thinking about checking out some of the 20k bulbs like reflux and ushio, when I need them again.

Good luck and happy hunting.

I switched to se mh fixtures once the Phoenix bulbs were discontinued. Since the switch I realized I should have started with se in the first place
