Using Decoders To Create That Sense Of Realism
One standard decoder does exactly what its name suggests. It decodes all produced images and data from once source and helps contribute towards the picture perfect transmission thereof to a portable device and, in turn, to a screen. This can take the form of your laptop computer’s screen or the large screen that is the prominent aspect of your customary home entertainment center, a standard feature of most households today.
Speaking of entertainment, there are others. And these require a lot more productive and thought-provoking input from the user or practitioner. Where model airplanes with the ability to fly at high distances are concerned, they have yet to get it right. Instead of the ominous rumble or scurrilous drone familiar to real, life-sized aircraft, you get that rather irritating buzz, as irritating as the noise a fly makes in close proximity to your ears, eyes and nose.
But still, progress is being made by avid hobbyists. The men who love their cars are, slowly but surely, getting it right. The outdoor model cars are starting to resemble the Daytona or F1 track. But the indoor scale track still needs some fine-tuning. There’s still too much of a whirr as heads spin, watching just two or four small cars duel it out with each other for lap after boring lap. Around and round they go.
But the men with train tracks and locomotives and cabooses on their table are having a field day with their dcc sound decoders. You know the sound that the Amtrak long-distance train makes? You know the sounds that those classic green locomotives with heavy smokestacks make? It sounds very real indeed. And it is even possible to replicate the hubbub of the traffic that must board these famous trains.
