I've used Ilford Galerie Smooth Pearl and think that it's a good choice with K3 inks. However I prefer ICI Olmec260gm heavyweight satin, as it's a whiter paper, and I think easier to obtain an absolutely neutral print.

If you make a comparision between the two before printing, the Ilford has a slight yellow/cream appearance in comparison to the Olmec's cleaner white.

I get the Olmec from MX2 at very good prices.

I got a custom ICC profile for my 4800 made by the Dot Foundry, http://www.thedotfoundry.co.uk which is a significant improvement on the canned epson profiles.

Good luck with your 2400, sure you'll be very impressed with it!

Cheers,
Ken
