A modern user interface is the next step up for DCC.

Established manufacturers have been slow to update their systems in this regard.

Lenz have provided it on the Roco MultiMaus, but we've yet to see what they have planned for their next generation systems and controllers.

It seems the Dynamis will do all a £250 system will do as well!

I can't wait!

No, the Dynamis handset/console is Wireless. The Pro enables you to add another 3 similar handsets to make a total of 4.
Add another wireless module and there is scope for further 4. At least that's the way it reads to me?

The Pro also allows you to connect up to 128 devices which may include further wired handets.

£90 rrp may end up as £75 at the store?
As we don't know how much a Dynamis Pro will cost, or a Pro box, my guess is that the announced price is a marketing device to stall potential buyers from opting for the Hornby Elite when it arrives sometime this spring???

2.4 Ghz is the allocated band for most WiFi kit.
That not only includes wireless networks but TV senders that transmit TV pictures around the house, streaming audio devices that distribute internet radio, PC music files, iPod or Mp3 around the home.

I've not had a problem with multiple systems in operation; well so far!

Are DECT phones on this too?

QUOTE Mind you as good and reliable as it is I'd sell for a Zimo unit , 5 digit addressing


What advantage is there to having 5 digit addressing?

Other than enabing you to address more locos and devices (do you really need that many?), I can't think of any other reason?

If it's to choose an address that corresponds with a loco number, then that's now surpased by the availability of systems with a loco naming feature.
You can input whatever alpha-numeric name you like, subject to the number of characters available.
e.g. the Hornby Select allows 8 characters, the Bachmann Dynamis 12 characters and the Roco MultiMaus 5 characters. There are other systems with this feature too.
