List of spectrometers: to measure CRI, etc

I've set up notifications on a Dutch marketplace website for several Spectrometers. So in case they get offered for sale, second hand /used, I receive a notification. 

But I sometimes encounter brands I didn't know of. 

So I thought it could be nice to have a list of Spectrometers, so people can look for them new/second hand. 

The list can also include other devices that have the features of a spectrometer.

Xrite i1 studio , Colormunki photo , i1 pro.

Used with ArgyllCMS (free, Windows, Linux, Mac, command line) (there are other supported spectrophotometers listed but I’m not sure how common they are), ArgyllCMS pro (100$, Android), or Babelcolor CT&A (125$, Windows, mac, only i1 pro).

I have a i1 studio, paid 350€ new, but they are discontinued now, like the Colormunki Photo, the other day one went for 101€ + 20€ shipping from Italy on Ebay . They are more common on the US second hand market, Here is one for 150$ .
Maukka uses an i1 pro with CT&A, recognisable from the screenshots.

XRite first, then merged with Calibrite in 2021, I think.

Only for the i1 display (colorimeter) and studio (spectrophotometer) apparently. I didn’t mention it because the price is significantly higher for what is likely exactly the same thing.

Colormunki Photo , because there is the Colormunki display which is a colorimeter.

I have been on the look for an Xrite as well, when I saw that they were named Calibrite.. 

I hope to add more to the list.. so people can easier find them online, second hand for example

Asensetek is still going AFAIK. They are available for purchase on alliedscientificpro.com, and their app is still being updated. I’ve had one for years and love it. Smaller than a deck of cards, it fits easily in my laptop bag, so it’s always on hand. You’d be surprised how often a quick read of a light source comes in handy.

Have you got this working? The i1Studio isn’t in the list of supported devices, and last time I tried the demo it didn’t recognize it.

Gossen Mavospec Base and Mavospec Lite.

I believe the munki is discontinued as is that version of the studio.
Here’s what they currently offer.

No that’s why I mentioned only i1 pro.

Are you sure about that? Asensetek doesn't have a website anymore..

I’m not sure they ever did — I bought through Allied Scientific. I can confirm that their SpectrumGenius cloud service is alive and well.

Well, their documentation mentions the website, but if I go there, it's gone. Other websites mentioning Asensetek also link to that same website... 

I hope I'm wrong though..

I hope so too! It’s a great product. My guess (hope) is that they were acquired and that result in website changes. But I can’t find anything about it online one way or the other.

I think the new company name is Spectrum Genius? https://spectrumgenius.com/website/about-us

If you look at their (Spectrum genius) address details, they are named Asensetek Canada Inc, and interestingly enough, their email is from alliedscientificpro.com.

Also, here is a mention from 2019, that Asensetek might have gone broke: https://ledgardener.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=4105 

Edit: 

Update: 

I just reached out to them, and yes, these are (again) still in business, so less worry.
