    Hi all, apologies if this has been answered before, but are the J1SYS controller still available at all, and particularly who might be selling in Australia.

    I have purchased previously some ECG-P2s from CLAP Supplies, but they seem to have disappeared from the web.

    Cheers

    The manufacturer (Ed from J1SYS) seems to have fallen off the face of the earth.

    Multiple people report no luck in trying to contact him.

    Ben from CLAP Supplies had to give up selling his products due to this.

    Thanks David, looks like I'll have to look for another manufacturer for my matrix for next years display.

    Cheers

    The 2 most popular ones at the moment are the Advatek and Falcon controllers.

    You can buy the Advatek ones in Australia from Advatek Lights.

    The Falcon ones are pretty much only sold over here as part of a group buy as they don't ship to Oz.

    I did have J1sys stuff when I first started but as you have found it doesn't seem he is around anymore and the big two as David said really are the way to go.

    I only use Advatek now and a couple of ESPixel (Wifi) mainly because Advatek are in Australia and their customer service is exceptional.

    Just a note to say that I renewed Ben's domain (for this year anyway) and linked it to a page on da-share so there's a trail from clap-supplies.com to my j1sys folder now.

    Hey no worries Ben. I know what it like when suppliers let you down. Looking at the Advatech at the moment, simply because they are here. Falcon seems to be great from what I read, but wont ship to Australia.... Cheers Darrin
