LokSound V4.0 decoders help many H0 model railroaders to operate their locos with realistic sounds, something that friends of the smaller N and TT gauges don´t need to do without. We even once more reduced the new LokSound micro V4.0 decoder´s dimensions compared to its forerunner. With a size of only 25mm x 10.6mm x 3.8mm it is the world´s smallest LokSound decoder!

Since there are also no more mechanical obstacles in the way, it is a pleasure to enjoy all the decoder´s features: the LokSound micro V4.0 incorporates a complete digital decoder, which, besides DCC and Motorola®, also understands Selectrix®. Beside the two light outputs we were even able to integrate a sound-section, equal to that of its bigger brothers and two user selectable function outputs.

Just Amazing DCC and Sound
David Eaton (Citrus Heights, CA) 7/18/2016 11:52 PM
I knew about the smoothness of the motion control of the Loksound decoders, but I was really blown away by the sound that they get these locomotives to make. They have done a pair of these SD90/44MAC's for me and they are the pride of my UP roster. Just excellent. The one thing that could be improved on would be to include documentation supplied with the locomotives for an easier reference to how they are configured. For example, I have no idea what sound 4 is. Other than that, they are really exceptional.

DCC-LokSound Installation Package - KATO
Jeffrey Bowman (Fort Myers, FL) 12/13/2012 3:47 PM
THT's sound and lighting package for KATO products exceeded my expectations of what can be accomplished in N Scale. Turnaround time is phenomenal. I have tried competitor's sound packages, and I have not found any the equal the throttle control or sound quality that comes with the LokSound. Color others envious when they see and hear my THT engines.
