Hornby Digital Sound Decoders DCC TTS with Speakers – R8108 Tornado AI
Speaker Rectangular Size 40mm x 20mm Speaker Round Size 28mm
Each decoder provides a pre-recorded set of sounds specific to a type of steam or diesel / diesel electric loco. Decoders are not limited to use in those locos however, you can fit them in any loco that has a suitable 8 pin socket and space for the speaker – just choose a decoder from a similar size and class of loco to get a good approximation of sound.
All decoders feature a standard motor drive function, so replace the standard loco decoder that you would otherwise use. They can also be used to replace Hornby and Bachmann’s factory fitted 8 pin decoders – just check you have room for the speaker.
IMPORTANT – The decoder does not support sound under DC (analogue) operation. Sounds can only be played under DCC (digital) operation. This applies to all sounds, both running and spot sounds. The locomotive’s motor may be controlled under DC operation.
