High CRI emitters

I am soon (when stuff arrives from .cn) going to be building some S2+ with 219Bs. What other high CRI emitters are worth trying just for comparison?

The right bins of SST-20’s are pretty good and again the right bins of the LH351D.

EDC rotation:
KR4, SST-20 FA3 4000k (favorite!)
FW3A, Nichia 4000k sw40 r9080 (second favorite)
FW1A, LH351D 3500k (third favorite)
FW1A, XP-L Hi 3A
FW3A, LH351D 3500k
FW3A, SST20 FD2 4000k
FW3A, Cree XP-L Hi 5A3
Emisar D4V2, SST20 4000k
Emisar D4V2, brass E21A 3500k (night light of choice)

You should try some quad Nichia E17As. They work great in the S2+ with an OP reflector and frosted lens. Great tint and very high CRI.

I’d rather use my flashlight around the house than turn on the lights.

And the Nichia E21A and Optisolis.

Try the B35A, uniform beam in clear optics whereas quad E17A/E21A need frosting, better optic compatibility too.
