Welcome to DCCSound! There are 3 key elements required to achieve great sound in a model locomotive:
1 The input: The Sound Project
2 The converter: The Sound Decoder
3 The output: The Speaker System
DCCSound is an authorised ESU stockist and we offer a suite of products and services for model railway hobbyists in search of great sounding models.
We also offer decoder installation services, should you wish for us to complete the work. We have over 10 years experience in digital decoder installations, so please contact us for a quote.
