    Can I use a Digitrax Decoder (DN163K1B) with a Lenz Digital Controller(set 90) without any problems.

    Because of the standards, all DCC decoders work with all controllers.
    There may be a few minor incompatibilities -- some addressing problems and some really cheap controllers may not work all the fancy functions, but the Lenz is very standard.
    Where you will find incompatibility is if you try to expand your Lenz controller with extra throttles and boosters made by someone else.
    There are a few systems that are not compatible with DCC -- usually much older systems before DCC became the standard. And I'm not sure about the systems used by the O-gauge toy manufacturers.
