Hornby DCC TTS Sound Decoders with Speaker (8 Pin NMRA Connector)

NOTE: Buying more than one?  Use the ADD TO BASKET option to ensure that postage is combined correctly.

Note:  Some are new for this year and will show when released.  Some are discontinued and have been removed.  Please see notes below.


If not fiting to the exact Hornby model mentioned please be aware that some cutting or modification of interior parts of the model may be needed to fit the speaker.  Please also note that a small number of very old Select and Elite controllers (mainly those over 5 years old) occasionally struggle with these decoders and that a firmware update will cure this - we understand Hornby will update firmware if controllers are sent to their service centre - we would stress this is a minority of controllers and we do not have available the software version numbers affected.

Tornado: Some people complain of issues fitting the Tornado chip, others have no problem.  It seems some of the bodies are a little tighter than others.  If you have major issues, see below about changing speakers.

Mounts: Some decoders include mounting plates or brackets, these are not shown in our photographs.

Changing Speakers: If fitting the decoder to a loco that it wasn't designed for or where you are unhappy to make minor changes to the body to mount the speaker, it is necessary to cut off the speaker and fit a "Sugar Cube" speaker (widely available on eBay for around £4) in it's place.  Please ensure you test the decoder with the body off and the original speaker in place fully before changing the speaker as Hornby state cutting the wires invalidates any guarantee.

Hard Wiring: If your loco does not have a socket, please always fit a socket.  Decoders returned that have had the plug cut off are warranty voided and cannot be refunded as of October 2019.  There is never a good reason to hard wire a decoder, just fit an 8 pin socket - it's the same number of wires to solder and you can then plug and unplug the decoder as required.

Faulty? Like with all electricals, sometimes a chip will fail when first installed.  In these cases, please just contact us for a free return label so we can swap it for you - we need back the decoder with speaker still attached and the packet it came in.   Please don't open an eBay "return" if you need a swap as the facility forces us to refund you when the item arrives back.

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.
