I agree!IMHO three sound equipped units on a single train running on a home layout is just too much noise!

I admit that I am less experienced than most of the HO guys in this forum, however, the CV's to adjust the volume was the first I learned. I run mine at about 25-30% of factory settings.Turn the volume down.
Not a facetious answer either - the volume on sound decoders is often set at like 100% from the factory and really needs to be dialed back so you really only hear it if you're within a few feet, not across the room.
This improves both the noise level (especially with multiples) and also the sound quality, since you're not blowing out the tiny little speakers in the locos.
$529.99 @ Trainworld for PA/PB sets. (DCC/Sound) Still too rich for my blood. And just taking backorders. Nothing actually available. DC is less.
