QUOTE (ebaykal @ 18 Apr 2007, 06:12) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>MMD,

I completely agree with you.
It eventually comes to the saying that " I am not rich enough to buy cheap things."

The left lobe of my brain says: ESU command control+Lenz silver or Direct+ loksound V3.5 decoders, while the right lobe says
(Wife+kids+.....) settle with the Elite when it arrives.

But you never know, the devil works in mysterious ways.

Baykal, I have one DCC fitted Hornby loco which has a Hornby decoder and it really sucks. It is simply the worst decoder I have ever encountered yet. To be fair I think the type of motor does contribute to the poor performance. That is my limited experience of Hornby decoders. This decoder will be coming out and getting replaced. It does sound like these decoders can function with some motors from what you say though. It would be good to see what motors they are compatible with.

The left lobe of my brain won and my preferred decoders and command centre are as you list but I use Lenz Gold instead of Lenz Silver. At the end of the day we all have to make our own choices based on our own priorities.
