MRC 112704 16 Bit Universal ALCO 244 HO DCC Sound Decoder
Combined with any DCC system, MRC's true live capture digital sound decoder will make your model railroad come to life. This 16-bit Universal DCC decoder has an ALCO 244 Prime Mover sound, four horns, two bells and contains other high-end features & controls found in MRC's Platinum Series 16-bit decoders. This HO scale decoder is designed for mounting where space permits, and includes a speaker socket for your MRC plug-in 8-Ohm speaker (sold separately).
The installed ALCO 244 Prime Mover sound is suitable for these diesel locomotives - RS-3, PA1 and PB1.
Until now, the air compressor sound had only one constant speed. That's no longer true. MRC has programmed the air compressor sound on its diesel decoder to be in sync with the RPMs of the prime mover, so it operates just like many popular prototypes. In addition, depending on the type of locomotive being used, you have the versatility to use the air compressor either synced or non-synced to the prime mover.
The MRC 16-bit Preferred Sound Decoders now include added actual, real-life service braking control. Applying the brake sound (F5) will prototypically slow the loco down. Simultaneously, a brake squeal will be activated as the brakes are applied. Stop applying the brake and the squeal immediately turns off. Also, hitting the dynamic braking sound (F6) will not only provide sound but also slow the loco down. Only an MRC decoder puts authentic braking action and synchronized sound together.
