Sound decoders

The German brand Doehler & Haass is well known for their quality sound decoders. There is something special about the way their decoders bring the sounds to you. Anyone can make the sound of a steam train huffin’ and puffin’, but it’s in the fine details where you hear the difference. It all feels more natural. The sound projects for these decoders are mainly from the German speaking countries and (curiously enough) Spain and can be listened to here. To upload the sounds to the decoder, you would need the Doehler & Haass programmer. The project file can be downloaded from within the programmer software. But when ordering your sound decoder, we are happy to install the desired sound project for you.

SUSI sound module to connect to decoders

The SUSI system is a way to add extra functions to a normal train decoder. Any Train-O-Matic decoder has four SUSI solder pads. When this sound module is connected, it will be controlled by the train decoder and sound will be added to the existing setup. This is therefor not a full decoder, but a module to connect to a decoder that has SUSI connectors.
