Have you ever dreamed of expanding past onboard sound for your Model Railroad? Birds singing, dogs barking, a sawmill running, men working in the shed, how about a logging operation? Do you have a Museum Display that you wish was more interactive? How about a piece of Artwork that is begging to tell a story? A baseball collection that deserves a description? Your daughter's dream doll house that plays her favorite song so her dolls can dance? The possibilities are endless!

Sound is an elegant and simple way to add realism to any project. Not just 'silly' sound effects, but full fledged High Quality Stereo Sound Tracks! Now you can have the luxurious Stereo Sounds your project deserves and a Solid-State device to play them. Customers have used our Players to add realism to their railroad layouts, theme park announcements, zoo exhibits, museum displays, information kiosks, Christmas lights...even motion sensing dresser drawers! If you can dream it, you can add sound to it with The Dream Player MK2 Amplified!

The Dream Player MK2 Amplified uses a Micro SD Flash card to store audio files on your Player and can be loaded with any WAV format audio file. This unique feature means you can load your own sounds onto the SD Card to create personalized audio tracks. No need to have a manufacturer load template sounds or send your player off to someone with expensive editing software to get the sound you you can load and edit the files yourself! Copy a track from your favorite CD, record your own sounds, or use any of our FREE sound file downloads. If you are looking for a ready-to-run solution, professional quality Scale Magicâ„¢ Sound from Fantasonics Engineering is also available for your Dream Player.

The Dream Player has been tested with Micro SD Flash Cards ranging from 1 MB up to 16 GB, which gives you up to 25 hours of Stereo File space to load onto your Dream Player using the 16GB card.

Also included on the SD Card is a "CONFIG" file. This file allows you to customize the behavior of your Dream Player and edit a variety of features to enhance your project. Things like: How long should my file fade out, 5 seconds, 1 second, no fade? Should your files trigger when you hold a button or when a button is released? Should they trigger from a motion sensor? The great thing about it is that you can change your configuration at any time to fit your ever changing project needs.

Not only can The Dream Player produce High Quality sound, it can also add a level of animation and automation to your project using onboard trigger Inputs and Outputs. With four different Inputs you can have your Player individually select the sound track that will play at any point in time. Each of the trigger inputs is optically isolated and can be connected to buttons, switches, sensors, block-occupancy detectors, or even a DCC Decoder. A visitor can push a button to start a scene, or simply walk-up, and a motion sensor can trigger your sound track. The Random Mode feature in the CONFIG file allows the Dream Player to select the track to play and then trigger one of up to eight different files on the track, giving you more variety for your projects.

But wait that's not all! The Dream Player also features four Control Outputs to allow the control of any accessory you wish. Let the Dream Player control lights, motors, servos, model crossing gates, model carnival rides, cranes, you name it. Each audio track on the SD Card has its own Control Output. That means you could have a 'Day' track with one set of lighting, and a 'Night' track with another set of lighting.

The Dream Player MK2 Amplified also features a built in 2 Watt Stereo Amplifier. This gives you two speaker connection options: You can provide audio to powered speakers using the Player's 3.5mm (1/8 inch) Stereo Audio Jack, or you can use the Player's two dual position terminal strips to provide audio to non-powered speakers utilizing the Player's built in 2 Watt Amplifier.

The Dream Player MK2 Amplified is great for portable modules, fixed layouts, adding triggerable sound to your project, controlling automated characters, controlling lights, or anything you can imagine with Layout Sound! No compromise in quality, this little guy packs a powerful punch with 44.1KHz 16-bit Stereo WAV files, the Dream Player MK2 Amplified sounds as good as a real CD player, but with no moving parts! Externally controllable, able to loop any sound without missing a beat, and the ability to choose powered or non-powered speakers, makes The Dream Player MK2 Amplified your Ultimate Audio Project Solution! Give your imagination the room to run wild and let The Dream Player MK2 Amplified take your project to the next level!
