    Well Hello,


    Came across this while stumbling through the oodles and oodles of information about christmas light displays.


    As a newby, I am keen to get some things happening but not sure where to start.


    Im keen to have a display this year (2016) for something different.


    Im keen to get:
    E682
    E6804
    power supplies and
    the pixels from somewhere cheap, but not sure considering im in aus - any ideas would be greatly appreciated.


    Lots of tinkering to be done in the future.

    Welcome to ACL

    You might want to consider the F16v2 as your pixel controller. They're only available as a group buy item and there is currently a group buy which will close around the end of January. There is quite a good comparison of many pixel controller options here http://nutcracker123.com/nutcracker/rgb_controllers/
    The PixLite 16 and P12S are easy to get hold of within Australia but there are also the PixLite 4 and P2 which aren't listed in the comparison. You can view them here

    Where to buy pixels and what voltage is a personal choice thing. I buy mine from Aliexpress seller Ray Wu and email him for a better quote before ordering. He's sometimes slow to get things shipped but I've always been happy with the quality and pricing. The pixel strings and strips have different sets of advantages/disadvantages at different voltages too.
