Hi

Am wanting to update my Marklin BR 101 to full sound function and am yet to decode between ESU and Marklin sound decoders. Does anyone have any advice?

THanks

Take two locos, convert one with ESU decoder, one with Märklin decoder, then try them both.

ESU sounds better (probably more noticeable with diesel and steam locos). You have to decide if the better sound is worth the higher price.

To take full advantage of Märklin sound decoders, you will need a CS2. To take full advantage of ESU sound decoders, you will need a LokProgrammer.

Wich is no minor subject.
I love ESU decoders, the sound is really good.....the sound of Marklin ones does not fill my guts completely.
Now, with M4 loksound you can the advantages of easier programming with the CS2.....but you will be stuck with the sound project you ordered it, unless you can take your hands to a near lokprogrammer.
