Phoenix 14k de bulbs and LuXcore ballasts

I'm now putting my metal halide pendants back into service over a 75 gallon reef. I'm using two phoenix double-ended 250w bulbs with magnetic ansi m80 ballasts. When the ballasts eventually have to be replaced I know it will be next to impossible to find another pair of m80s.

How do phoenix bulbs look when powered by luXcore select a watt ballasts on the hqi setting? Does one still get the crisp white with a hint of blue?

It will work fine, maybe a little bluer.
