ESU Sound & Loco Drive Decoders & Accessories

We have worked with ESU sound decoders for many years, and they are still in very many ways our favourites. There are occasionally debates about ‘which is best’ but its our experience that feature-wise there is nothing missing at all from ESU and sound quality-wise, its up there with the best of them. – Sound quality of installations will vary of course, because quality of installation and quality of the sound file itself will have a very big influence on the final result.

We stock the full range of ESU sound decoders, speakers and accessories, and have over 100 exclusive sound files that we have created for specific locomotive prototypes in addition to the several hundred already available from ESU. (Many of them for UK steam locomotives and specific Australian steam/diesel sounds).

We always load ESU sound to order and for those who buy their sound decoders from us, we offer a free re-load service if you damage the sound file in some way. We can also add customised sounds if you wish… anything from special whistles to station announcements, and even specific ‘Thomas’ related sounds for the grandchildren’s pleasure!

Function buttons can of course be set any way you want, to operate any way you want. ESU’s loco control is, by the way, the best there is bar none!

For those who like to ‘fiddle’ we also offer one other benefit – For decoders we load, we also change the defaults within the decoder to match our specific sound file settings… so a ‘reset’ will not scramble the sounds as it often does with sound-file programming from other resellers. We also offer a full installation service for those who would like to have sound but do not feel confident about the installation process. ESU have a really fantastic warranty backup too (at its best only via DCCconcepts).
