I've spoken to reps from Brother and two dealers and they say the Brother was built from the ground up as a DTG and is not a modified Epson. Just because the heads look similar doesn't mean anything. Cars look similar but there are major differences among them.
Here is a quote from the Brother website: "The GT-541 is designed for garment printing. Matching ink and print heads were developed specifically for printing on cotton and cotton/polyblended materials." To me that doesn't say modified.
I would think the Brother reps and dealers would have some experience with this also.
