Default De vere 54 or Durst m805

So there are two enlarged available in Cornwall and Iím trying to choose between them. What would your choice be between the 54 or the m805?

Thanks
David

A couple of questions first, if I may?
Are they diffuser or condenser versions?
How complete are they?
What state or condition are they in?
Which formats do/will you shoot?

The reason for getting one is so I can shoot up to 5x4 in the future as my current enlargers canít . The enlarged can be found here

That De Vere 54 is quite old but also very robust and the price is right, also easy to service.
