I have a Pradovit C2500 with a Colorplan 90 and Elmaron 200mm but no hand control. It's a solid commercial-grade machine, but noisy. They were the standard slide projector at universities here for decades.
I have the big brother of Color 150, the Color 250, and they have the rock-solid construction of that Leitz era. The C2500/CA2500 family is higher end, but not better built. I'm fortunate to them both. As for the noise, well, it comes with the territory.
