Welcome to ACL and welcome to the addiction.

There are 3 main ways you can go

1: buy a plug and play system - Higher cost higher quality, minimal time investment
2: Learn DIY - Lower cost and quality but much higher time investment
3: Start with a plug and play system and expand from there if you want to invest the time learning DIY in the future.

Now you just need to decide which way you want to go and what value you put on your time and capability

There are also other choices than just LOR when it comes to plug and play

will that control my store bought Led strings from kmart big w etc if I take off the controllers and power packs? and will that let me control the individual colours of a multicolour string or will the whole string just come on at once?
You'll be able to control the multicolour strings as red+green on together and/or yellow+green on together using 2 channels of a DC controller. This assumes Big W strings.

Welcome to ACL, hopefully we don't overwhelm you with to much knowledge and scare you off. Take some time to read the 101 manual as it is a priceless bit of kit for our hobby.
