We are pleased to announce that the Titan-U decoders are in stock and we will commence shipping in several weeks. We apologize for the delays and appreciate all who have been patient and expressed overwhelming interest in this new, exciting technology.
The delivery sequence for the Titan-Us is as follows (see below for the complete schedule):
- UP Turbine
- All Steam Files
- GE Diesels
- Baldwin Diesels
- Alco Diesels
- EMD Diesels
Our testing of the UP Turbine has been very impressive and the new stereo output is a quantum leap over the Titan's monotone predecessors and other competing products. For the Turbine, by directing and balancing the stereo output to speakers fore and aft we positioned the sounds exactly where they should be, with the horns up front, the diesel helper outback and the Turbine, amidships. You literally have to hear this compared to the mono versions to appreciate the significant difference stereo makes. Many folks have been skeptical or laughed at the stereo as a gimmick, the real thing proves unquestionably otherwise.
If you think about it, there are many other prototype stereo options like; articulated steam, dual prime movers, even (F) units can have a speaker up front for the horns and one aft for the prime mover.
In view of the delays we have updated the entire Titan series release schedule that was posted with the initial press release:
