Here is an inexpensive two wire controller on ebay. One of the first two wire systems I have worked on.

We just started a few Hunter DUAL systems. Price is right and running 2 Wire is a labor saver for sure.

I haven't used one on a system that small yet, but I am considering it on some jobs where the LA keeps changing the landscape way after the irrigation has been installed.
