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

Immersive Drive – All locomotive sounds have now been enhanced with a new YouChoos immersiveDrive variant which combines many advanced features available on Zimo decoders as standard, resulting in a more involved, stimulating and realistic driving experience. Features include  Active Braking, Shunt/Half Speed Mode, Light-Engine, Dynamic Inertia and Exponential Momentum, to name a few. The Traditional-style projects have also been updated with any improved sounds, so quality is ensured, regardless of which style of control you opt for.

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 us if you need help

Speakers – Please note All speakers are 1W unless marked 2W. The 2W speaker options are not compatible with MX648/648/658
