Need advise on a sound system for HO Railroad Layout

  1. Hello all, I am going to invest in a sound system, such as MRC Symphony or? I'm sure there are others available, any one have a particular make they are in love with with? All recommendation's would be appreciated, and I will make a decision based on a majority preference. My local hobby shop went out of business, and I have no way to hear one for myself.

    Thank You All In Advance. :wave:

    If you are operating with DCC, and want sounds to come from the locomotives, I would suggest on-board sound decoders. :thumb:

    If you are looking for "ambient" or "environmental" sounds, then something like the MRC town&country (or whatever they call it) might be good. However, with MP3 players so cheap, and decent quailty, low cost small speakers available, I would be tempted to create my own soundtrack for ambient noises.

    Good source of information is the Layout Sounds yahoo group.
