LokSound V5 DCC Sound Chip

Designed specifically for the accurascale GWR 'Manor' locomotive, this decoder works seamlessly with the onboard firebox flicker, PowerPack stay-alive system and dual speaker configuration to reproduce the characteristic sound and function of an locomotive  at work.

Common Features:

  • The LokSound 5 decoder works for analogue DC and AC (!) layouts.


    The LokSound 5 decoder can reproduce up to 10 channels simultaneously. Each channel offers up to 16 Bit / 31250 kHz and thus we have finally achieved hi-fi sound quality on your layout. For all practical purposes one cannot detect any difference to the original. A class D audio power amplifier with up to 3W output power feeds the speakers with a permitted impedance of 4 – 32 Ohms. The huge 128 MBit sound memory assures sufficient storage capacity.

    The volume of all individual sound fragments may be adjusted separately. The outstandingly flexible sound engine without a rigid flow chart facilitates a prototypical simulation of all conceivable rail vehicles. Three separately adjustable braking functions and two alternative load scenarios provide you with maximum control of your vehicles.


    We are quite aware that you want your locomotives to be as realistic as possible. Therefore we have packed many function outputs into it.  Subject to the type of interface every LokSound 5 has at least 10 amplified outputs. The decoders with PluX22 or 21MTC interface have an additional 4 outputs for controlling servos or as logic outputs. Of course, all important lighting functions are supported. The brightness of each output may be adjusted separately. The decoder supports the automatic push and pull movements – known as the coupler waltz - required for reliable operation of digital couplers such as the ones by ROCO® and Krois® as well as Telex® couplers.

    Motor control

    Motor control of the LokSound 5 has been further improved. A variable PWM pulse frequency ranging from 10 kHz to 50 kHz assures perfect silent operation, particularly for coreless motors. Thus the typical hum is a thing of the past. Load control can now be adjusted with up to 10 separate CVs and thus will manage even the most difficult cases. The unique “Auto Tune” function facilitates the automatic calibration of the decoder to perfectly match the motor. The LokSound 5 decoder supplies up to 1.5A motor current, which is quite sufficient even for older motor types.

Manor 7818 plus sound decoder

I have bought 4 Accurascale Manors with sound. They are amazing and are fully worth the investment. The detail is unreal allowing a full spread of the liveries.

Really good thanks

I recently purchased this sound decoder to go in the model of Dinmore Manor i bought back in November. The sound quality and range is excellent and i would highly recommend. The only suggestion I would make is adding a list of the sounds and cv settings available.

Manor - Sound Chip

Bought this for my Accurascale Dinmore Manor as (at the time - lessson learned!) the sound fitted ones had sold out. Easy to fit and sounds great.

Stephen C.

Excellent sound chip for the Manor only one issue it doesn't come with listing of what each function does

Tiny chip yields big results

The Accurascale Manor is a lovely model, completely transformed by the fitting of a tiny sound chip. On my admittedly small depot scene, the volume is plentiful, and the array of sounds a joy to hear. Left in F1 mode, sequential coal shovelling, valve hissing and exhaust chuffing all contribute to a realistic soundscape. With further functions, it is easy to add occasional whistles , flange squeal and clanking. I particularly like the groans as the loco starts to move, at tortoise pace if desired. Fabulous; but of course it means all my other GWR locos now need sound!

Bought this for Dinmore Manor. Top notch sound for a top notch loco. 👌🏼

Manor sound decoder

Very nice, my first experience of steam sound, shame the accurathrash speaker wouldn't fit but still very good
