    note the publication date on those books. A lot has changed the last couple of years. DSB for example, was big 5 years ago, and today mostly replaced by other means. Same for LED lights. 5 years ago the LED units were simply not able to do the job. Today, they are on par or even sometimes better than MH units. Well that opinion is debatable.

    You can use this forum as an alternative information source. The total knowledge locked up within MASA is more than a book. And it is build up out of personal experiences and knowledge gained over the years.
