The economy version of the SP 80 Special projector with a lower powered amplifier and a cheaper zoom lens. It lacks the frame counter of the SP 80 models but is otherwise identical to the SP80 Special.

The construction of this projector borrows heavily from Eumig 700 and 800 series projectors. Much of the parts and components are identical and most of the accessories are common.
