Could it be the USB connection I'm using?  Would Thunderbolt to Ethernet work better?

This is still ongoing.  Per other forums, I've limited Photoshop to 25% usage of RAM instead of the 70% I had it able to use.  I got one print to go full length, 60 inches long x 40 wide at 300 ppi, but printing at 720 dpi I could see some banding so went back to 1440.  Separate issue is about a third of the test prints get maybe 75% along when the printer decides the paper isn't straight.  Also downloaded a new driver from Epson, the one I've been using is downloaded from Canson, the paper manufacturer.

Also I found that for Ethernet I'd need to install an Ethernet card.  This Epson 9600 is pretty used, I'm thinking I might be up to needing to shell out for a new printer.
