From what I have heard about Hornby Decoders its probably safer to use them with DC rather than DCC you may find that as soon as you setup the decoder in your class 5 it may blow up in the model or cause your DCC system to blow I know of one DCC user that has had to send his Lenz system back to Lenz as he tried a Hornby Decoder and it fryed his Lenz 100 system.

Plus if you buy a hornby DCC set you you will not be able to use any other DCC locos on it as it is NOT NMRA compatable in any way shape or form without risk of damage to your loco models.

Hornby do not say that there system is fully NMRA compatable in the literature they have been very clever in how they have worded there literature.
