What are your thoughts on the sound quality in the KOBO custom Loksound units that KATO has been putting out recently (E5, F3 etc.)? Do these locomotives also come with the full throttle feature?

I have heard the Hiawatha FP7s and they sound just like any other LokSound -- excellent.  I don't know which exact speaker is in them, or baffle, but if they were mine, I wouldn't complain.

I assume these are coming with the latest/greatest sound files, which will be Full Throttle.  If not, it is easy to update the sound project, using a LokProgrammer. Also, I don't know if the BEMF has been tuned or not.
