QUOTE (Graeme T @ 26 Apr 2007, 09:35) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>What I was going to do was get a cheap DCC system to play with while I am messing about and building the thing, then introduce a better DCC system later.

I went the cheap route first, by buying the hornby mixed goods digital set. It was a good value for money intro to dcc, however i outgrew the capabilities of the select controller so quickly that within a month i was after something bigger and better. I hung around a while, did the research, waited for the elite and news on the dynamis etc....etc

Anyway to cut along story short i ended up buying an ecos whilst i was in germany last week. Yes it is a bit expensive but bang for buck as they say it's not so bad. A lenz set 100 with a reasonable power supply would only have been about £30 quid less and the ecos just has so much more potential it was well worth the extra little bit.

I'll probably end up flogging the select as i don't really have a use for it anymore, but hey it did a job for me and if i get a few quid back i'll be happy.

Good luck whichever route you go down.
