Lenz DCC- A bit of confusion...

6016 Views 14 Replies 10 Participants Last post by  Sir Galahad

Have been serching for a DCC system to get started on my layout with. I phoned a hobby shop to enquire about prices for the Lenz set 90 and transformer which came to over £200, then the chap said that the Lenz system was dated and had not been changed in ages. Then he reccomended the Gaugemaster Prodigy Advance which was £190 ish. It's odd that he is trying to sell us a cheaper system so I get the feeling that he has some serious reservations about the Lenz system.

I have read the Lenz Set 100 review which says it is good but has out of date software but I have yet to find a review on the Gaugemaster Prodigy Advance system which I thought was a popular system?

Anyway, I was just wondering what people thought I should do. Go for Lenz or Gaugemaster?

I have recently changed my ZTC 511 for an NCE Powercab and find it much superior to ZTC (outdated).
Ease of use is excellent, so I would seriously consider this item and at under £100 is well worth the money.
Incidently I purchased this from Digitrains, who provided me with excellent service.
