There have been a lot of reviews about the ESU LokSound decoder. They do their work worldwide in locos and provide a maximum of fun; the new LokSound V4.0 decoder will convince you once more with its inner values.



The LokSound V4.0 decoder is the flagship decoder for the serious modelling enthusiast. It is a combination of motor decoder and sound module on one PCB. You can install it in nearly every loco in H0 and 0 and so be able to control driving, light and sound.



LokSound V4.0 decoders are offered with all established plugs, including the 6-pin, 8-pin, which can be used in hardwired applications, and the wireless version 21 pin MTC interface, suitable for many new releases of Australian Locomotives.



The most robust and reliable decoder on the market that offers the user trouble free operations with all function outputs and the motor current output overload protected. ESU wants you to have fun with your decoder for as long as possible! A fully programmable decoder allowing you to create, modify and add your own sounds to the sound file. It also allows updating the internal firmware making it future-proof. This means, the internal software on the decoder‘s memory can be replaced by new versions supplied by ESU when new features, improvements or bug fixes are released.



The LokSound V4.0 recognizes DCC, Selectrix® and the Motorola® protocol. It can be operated with 14, 28 or 128 drive steps or on analogue DC layouts in DCC mode. LokSound V4.0 decoders are also able to operate on analogue DC and AC layouts. You can assign the decoders to 2-digit, 3-digit (1-127) or 4-digit (1-9999) addresses as well as a consist address.



You expect an excellent motor control from a LokSound Decoder and deservedly so! It would have to have the best motor control of any decoder. Here at DCC Solutions we have tweaked and programmed the decoder to provide super slow speeds perfect for those who like their locos to move off slowly or like to operate shunting. So many motors will run even better and softer with the LokSound V4.0.



The most important element of the new LokSound V4.0 decoders is the sound chip. with an enormous memory of 32 MBit to save up to 276 seconds of original sounds.



The LokSound V4.0 works with 8 polyphonic channels, allowing the decoder is able to play up to 8 different sounds simultaneously, using the 16-Bit mixer and the nearly noiseless D/A convertor.



And of course, let’s no forget the function outputs with the possibility of using constant current of a huge 250mA. These outputs can be assigned and controlled individually for the use of lights, smoke units, servos, etc.. They provide full support for all lighting functions and brightness.



The LokSound V4.0 is blank decoder that requires the sound file to be programmed onto the decoder. So lets us know what locomotive the decoder is intended for and we will provide you with the correct version of the V4.0 to fit inside the loco and load the sound project.



We have a large selection of Custom Sound Projects designed to suit the sounds of Australian locomotives as well as all the sound files available from ESU for American and European Locomotives. :D



We also stock a great range of speakers including our own range of High Performance Dynamic Speakers for use with this Decoder. If your locomotive does not have a factory speaker installed, don't forget to check out our speaker section to include a speaker. Not sure which speaker is suitable for your locomotive then contact us first before making a decoder purchase.
