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.
