BLANK Sound Decoders (with factory/test sound only)

Zimo sound decoders are the industry leaders in terms of features, performance and reliability. All Zimo sound decoders provide the same set of features varying onlyin their physical attributes such as size, motor power output, and number of function outputs.

Which decoder should I choose? Well, this depends on the scale and model you are installing into, how much space you have, and if there are any specific features you need. Contact YouChoos if you need help.

Prices listed below are for factory-default decoders (for no extra cost, choose any YouChoos sound project to have loaded - browse from the sound list rather than here to do this). Speaker is not included.
