Installing sound in 8-pin DCC On30 climax and looking for first-hand real world factual review of the current (2016) MRC sound decoders.  Understand that they have been not well-received in the past but want to know if they are worth considering now.

Thanks

Look at the TCS WOW decoder.  Best reviews out there.
Why put all the effort into the installation and not use the best.

I can't say as I've had anything but good luck with the MRC sound decoders that I have installed in my own locos. I have just ordered two more for future projects. They work reliably and sound fine to my ear.

Will look at the wow option.  Also am hearing that soundtraxx is soon to make an announcement of a new product.  Good to hear of a satisfactory experience with MRC.

Honestly I haven't heard any MRC steam decoders that I would consider decent. (before you call me a hater, I have the MRC 1922 diesel decoder in a proto E-8, and the 567 sound is really well done). My climax has a micro-tsunami logging decoder in it, and I'm quite happy with that combination.
