    ESU V5 sounds decoders have been announced, from speaking with SWD stock will be available after the end of February.
    Expect to pay about 10Euro more for the oo gauge versions. Micro V5 will now come with sugar cube speakers replacing the 16x25mm white speaker (good news).

    A bit more info on SWD web page.....

    I never could understand why ESU insisted on supplying a speaker with each sound decoder since in many cases it was entirely unsuitable (sizewise) for many steam loco's in 00 gauge. Fine for most diesels, but an unnecessary extra expense otherwise. I have to admit I'm not an ESU fan, much preferring Zimo and the ability to choose speaker(s) to suit the job in hand.
