What sound decoders have folks used in thier Stainz locos? Massoth LS is about £120 which seems alot to spend on a £60 loco.

Any suggestions?

Probably the way I will go Mike. What little experiance I have with decoders is Massoth. I was just wondering what others have done.

Alan, I started off with a Lenz Gold decoder, then a year or so later when I wanted to add sound I put in Dietz sound via the SUSI interface. The cost of this is about the same as the Massoth LS, but the cost was spread over time.

I do feel that sound boards are very overpriced.
You can buy a computer for the cost of some of them.
I know the argument about volume of production but these are just printed circuit boards, it's not rocket science.
Most of my locos have cost more to chip than they cost!

Having said that I chip with sound all my locos because it makes the experience so much better.
