DCC Soundtraxx
 Soundtraxx Logo


Effective today Soundtraxx has discontinued production of all Tsunami series decoders: TSU-1000, TSU-750, TSU-AT1000, TSU-BW1000, TSU-GN1000, TSU-IM1000s.
Orders received by Soundtraxx before today will be filled. They have some stock so they may be able to supply Tsunamis.
All Tsunamis we have on order for customers will be delivered this week or next.
We do have a reasonable stock of Tsunamis on hand..
From their announcement.
Tsunami FAQ:
  • I heard there was a component shortage leading to the end of Tsunami.
    - - - There is not a part shortage, or component supply issue.
  • Is Econami the same entry-level sound decoder as found in the Bachmann Sound Value or Athearn RTR?
    - - - No, the Econami is a full featured decoder product line. The Econami is a cost-effective decoder streamlined to fit the top selling prime mover and steam sounds. This product is designed to compete with many of the lower-cost decoders in the marketplace on price, while offering similar features offered as most of the high-end decoders.
  • What about the missing Sound Files that are not on the Econami?
    - - - We recognize the popularity of many of the sound files not included on the Econami product line. The Tsunami products helped create this market by offering the best quality sound and therefore modelers can now clearly hear the differences and characteristics of the individual locomotives not heard in previous generation sound decoders. These will not be forgotten or discarded.
  • What announcements are forthcoming?
    - - - We are not at a point to make any further announcements."
Stay tuned for further announcements.

< SPECULATION >
So what does the future hold for Soundtraxx?

The following is only speculation.
I expect that the future version of the Tsunami will be as easy to program as the Econamis. No convoluted programming like TCS, QSI or ESU. No programming booster required.
I expect more Econamis with the missing sound files. Whether they will be mixed like the current Econami or grouped by locomotive manufacturer, I do not know.
I do not know if sales of the special Tsunamis (BWxxx, IMxxx, GNxxx) justify releasing the Econamis in the same form factors.
We may see new connector versions, perhaps a 21 pin NEM Version or maybe Soundtraxx will be the first to release a 22 pin decoder.

Whatever transpires, I expect more great products from SoundTraxx.< /SPECULATION >
