Upgrading LOR-1602 with DC-MP3

Recommended Posts

I am looking to join the LOR family this year and have a question regarding the LOR-1602 unit. If I do not purchase the 1602 with the DC-MP3 upgrade, am I able to add it to the box later or do I have to provide another enclosure and daisy chain to the 1602.

I would love your insights. Pay the $250 now or cheaper later?

Thanks,

Warren

You can add it latter. http://store.lightorama.com/inmp3di.html

Have you looked at DIY version? http://store.lightorama.com/ctretogonoas.html with the mini director (http://store.lightorama.com/midiwimp3pl.html)? Would come out to be the same as a showtime box.

I use the director to run my show and LOVE it. No need to lock up a computer for the season. I think it is worth it.

I keep my MP-3 director separate from my nearest controller.

In fact, I keep it inside the house next to the computer and just run a Cat-5 from the MP-3 Director to my closest controller

That way, if I want to upload a sequence to the card (because I want to change something up), all I have to do is remove the card and load it without having to go outside and fumble around my controller with a flashlight.


In addition, if cars get too loud, or if it gets too late, I can kill the show by removing the card regardless of what time it is.

I love my MP-3 director and am very pleased with it's applications.

If you buy the DC-MP3 separately, I don't think it has an enclosure. May not be a deal-breaker, but keep it in mind.

The mini director is an option to provide control to your LOR network, but does not have a clock so you will have to kick off the show manually.

Hey everyone,

Great insight and thoughts. I will definitely consider your options when I include the Director into my network.

Thanks again,

Warren
