Hi everyone

For a while now I have been saving up and buying bits to build a laser show system. Most of them have come from China so have the 25k galvo kit which came with a show card, and yes like a fool got ishow unit. When I just use the show can demo it runs good animation but the ishow cards and software don't as most of you know.

So now I have seen the medlas mamba elements v3 at a good price but haven't seen any reviews of it. Can anyone tell me if its worth buying as its half the price of quickshow so could buy now where as I would have to keep saving for a while before I can get qs.

I'll try and get some photos of what I have built so far to see if its any good compared to some of you guys amazing setups.

He doesn't list it on his site but if you contact Gary (Hinged Newt) he can sell you a RIYA Multibus Lite DAC for $100, that's the best budget DAC deal you can find right now I'm sure: http://www.hingednewt.com/Pages/contactus.aspx

For software, if you have another $130 to spare, you should get LSX: https://innolasers.com/shop/index.php?id_product=18&controller=product
It's very good.

If you don't want to spend that much, you can get 5paghetti for $89, or even cheaper: My software LasershowGen plus ILD SOS, for like $55 total.

Hi Grix,

Thanks for the info I have emailed Gary to see if its still available. Do I take it that mamba elements is not that good?

Cheers

I don't know a lot about mamba so I couldn't really say, I think it is perfectly fine but I believe RIYA Lite + LSX is a better deal, I've heard a lot of praise for them
