The Kato Soundbox has been developed by engineers at Kato to craft a simple, versatile, and powerful sound system for use on non-DCC layouts. Completely self-contained, the Soundbox has a built in speaker and will allow modellers to enjoy an “In-Cab” experience while operating their favourite trains!
Using separate plug-in sound cards, cartridges each with their own individual sound and programming sets (even including things like momentum!), the Soundbox is a “smart” device, not just making sounds but reacting appropriately to the actions of your locomotives by reading back-EMF from the motors. Steam locomotive chuffs will speed up and slow down according to the speed of the locomotive itself; not just the position of the throttle, making the sound a properly interactive experience! The Kato Soundbox fits onto the accessory terminals of the Kato controller.
The Soundbox comes with 1x Steam Sound Card to get you started.
