Hi, I've been doing christmas light displays for a few years now, and want to upgrade to include the LOR musical lighted sequences. However, I'm having an internal debate about 240v vs DC. I want things to be easy enough for my first year, but not ridiculously expensive. I am planning on a 16 channel display, and want to know what is the best way to go about this. I Know I need to but a board which can come either fully put together or as a kit. Is the kit easy to assemble? Also, i was reading previous posts and understand the cordests are expensive to ship, so i have a feeling i will be not getting these and buying some cheapies here and changing them over. I am unsure however on the power input cable and the "?jumper" My father is an electrician, and i grew up doing lots of electrical stuff, so i understand some things, and my father is going to help where i need it. Any help would be appreciated still though. Also, is there any cheap housing units in australia, or what do other ppl use? Thanks for your help.
