Can anyone compare the light quality of this vs ...

Can anyone compare the light quality of this vs the Amaran 200xS? Specifically when it comes to skin tones? I know that’s general and subjective, but is the determining factor for which one to buy in my case.
Asked by: Steve
The Amaran 200xS seems to be better at skin tone rendering and on SSI score renders blue from 390 while Amaran 150c has absence till 420 at the lowest. Keep in mind that these measurements were taken in our store to provide the information. I may also share that from existing lighting fixtures available the highest quality of skin tone rendering will be with Nanlite Forza 60 C due to RGBLAC engine that to produce fuller spectrum of light.
