Hi Doug and Bob,

yes DelTang works with sound, but from the technical boundary conditions of DelTang and and of sound modules that are not dedicated to DCC alone, this was never a problem.

But please, that's not the topic here. This sound sample shall be a contribution to Si's "Replicant" aproach, using the parts Si has introduced here to feed an under layout sound system, and to send sound wireless everywhere you want by a bluetooth device. 

And that will work with any sound source. It's a Phoenix sound controlled by DelTang in my case, but will work as well with a DCC Decoder/Sound placed apart from the loco or with a MP3 player or SD card player that is fed with your own loco sound or with an ambient sound of e.g. a harbour scene.  

So Bob, size of a sound module doesn't matter, because it is placed outside the layout as I have shown in the "sound box" picture some posts above. In case of a small layout you can go with an under/over  layout speaker(s) alone and drop the bluetooth part if the bluetooth receiver doesn't fit inside the loco. I can give you the measurements of the bluetooth receiver if you want. 

The interaction of DelTang and my Phoenix sound module as such is explained here:  Phoenix sound and Rx65
