The Best Things Come in Small Packages

The HiLine™ line of sound systems feature Dallee Electronic's next generation of microprocessors. Not only does this mean more features are included, but the footprint is significantly reduced to fit in smaller spaces.

HiLine™ Sound System - Combinations

One Board. Endless Possibilities.

There are over 1500 ways to set up the sound unit with a selection of 8 whistles, 6 bells, and 3 chuffs, 2 air pumps, and 1 safety relief valve as well as the option to mute any of the sounds individually. Changing sounds is easy with the new setup mode and does not require a computer or external programming tool.

Universally Compatible

HiLine™ Sound Systems are electrically compatible with all model rail electrical standards. AC sound is fully supported where the whistle and bell work as triggers for the sound unit. DC sound works by using track magnets, a LocoMatic™ controller, or a wireless control. DCC sound is supported using an external DCC decoder. Some options require components not included.

More Bits Makes for Better Performance

Better performance is exactly what can be expected. This revolutionary new sound system features clearer crisper sounds with our greatest resolution ever offered at higher sampling rates all to provide a remarkable reproduction of the original locomotives.

Simultaneous Sounds

HiLine™ Sound Systems are completely polyphonic meaning that each sound mixes with the other for a full locomotive experience. Many other sound systems are only capable of producing one sound at a time - be it a whistle, bell, air pump, safety valve, or chuff, but when a whistle is blown on a HiLine™ Sound System, the rest of the sounds continue to play along with it.

HiLine™ Sound System - Easy Volume Adjustment

With the Push of a Button

With the push of a button the volume decreases. Another push raises the volume. Hold the button until the volume reaches the desired level. This simple interface enables HiLine™ Sound Systems to provide streamlined access to the volume by use of an on-board push-button, remote button, or a remote control (DCC, Wireless, etc.). Some options may require additional hardware.
