    Another option the OP should consider is running the 36v strings on 33v. That works quite well in some scenarios, but not all.

    So which idea do people think is the best? Pros and cons to both I guess...

    I can see Phil's needs no change to the board but it sounds like it wastes some power, and Matt's needs some modification to be done. I've got lots of 24v DC lights sets - maybe I should stick to those!!!!

    Could you get away with 33v without any changes then.

    If you have some, try them out.
    But reading your last post implies you may stick with 24v strings. One advantage to this option is commonality, and a lower risk of plugging the wrong string into the wrong voltage.

    The big issue I have is I've got strings with a complete variety of voltages (as per my original post!). The majority are the 24v ones, along with a large number of 24v AC ones as well. Having said that, although I don't have that many 36v strings it would be nice to use them if I could.

    Using multiple voltage strings with a single controller is not hard to do. The ACL wiki link I posted has details.
