Question: gloss optomizer and paper

I just bought a refurbished r1900 it has gone through 2 gloss optomizers in less than
50 sheets. Refills seem like not available. I'm beginning to wish I'd fixed my 1280 epson. I used up the last of a box of espon matt paper. the prints maybe got a 7
on my scale. Any recommendations on suppliers of paper & ink and paper to make
awesome rints. I'm far from impressed with the R1900
