QSI’s New “Titan” DC/DCC Large Scale G/O Sound & Power Decoders
Posted on 18. May 2012
We wish to thank all of you who have expressed interest in the new Titan Large Scale series and we appreciate your patience. The Titan Large Scale series is replacing the former popular QSI Aristo and Magnum large scale DC/DCC sound decoders. Generally the Titans appear similar to their predecessors. The new powerful custom sound processor significantly enhances performance and features, including a stunning STEREO or MONO output and 64 independent sound channels for unrivaled realism and much more.
Before designing the large scale Titans, we listened to and documented what many of our users wanted. Thus we developed a very flexible high performance easy to install sound decoder format. As a result, the large scale Titans have virtually an unlimited number of PnP and universal configuration options to suit almost all DC/DCC large scale sound installations. The Titan’s state of the art technology is unequalled for model railroading DC/DCC sound and power control. QSI’s superior analog (DC) performance gives the DC user an option of operating advanced sound control without having to invest in more expensive technology. If he chooses to upgrade in the future then his Titans are all set for either wireless or track based command control.
The new Titans have significantly more popular features and performance than their predecessors and have more parts. Thus the production costs and MSRP have increased accordingly. See the table below. The price increases are very reasonable considering the performance benefits. Furthermore the new Titans cost less than competing products that scantily compare!

This physically resembles the former QSI Aristo but has many more features:
|QSI Titan Aristo-6||$209.95|
|Titan Aristo 10 Amp-20 Amp Peak
All of the above plus an additional 4 Amps.
|QSI Titan Aristo-10||$229.95|

|Titan USA Trains 10-20 Amp Peak (PnP for Most of the Popular USA Locomotives)
This also uses the Titan Aristo 10 Amp unit above and special adaptors, sold separately (see here), for the various USA options to create a true PnP USA decoder.
|QSI Titan USA-10||$229.95|
|Titan Magnum 6-12 Amp Peak (Generic Large Scale G/O with 24 Screw Terminals)
This physically resembles the Titan Aristo above but the Aristo style pins are omitted and the universal screw terminals utilized

Sound File Numbers
The QSI Titan Series…. You Can Have Your Cake and Eat It Too!
Due to Titan’s gigantic memory of 64 Mb - 8x more than the competition - there are volumes of sound files stored that you can use to customize each loco ... if you wish. For example, let’s say you have the small steam decoder which comes ready to run as the small steam sound with numerous small steam whistle, chuff bell and other options; but you changed your mind and you actually want a large steam decoder. With the Titans you are good to go, and here is why:
In the vast Quantum Titan series sound set ID’s memory selectable by CV there are hundreds of other sound options stored to change your decoder to a medium or heavy steam decoder. And that’s not all ... you can also insert custom sound files or cut and paste many other available options using the Quantum Programmer to make any Titan any other prototypical configurations. No other sound decoder can match this performance.
