I took part in an op session once where the layout had such a system. It sounded exactly like I would have thought: the sound passing from one spot instantly to another. The owner of the layout kept trying to hype the system (sounding more like he was trying to convince himself it was great, more so than any of us) and nobody running there was having any of it.

I don't understand the merit to something like that in an era of 'plug and play' sound that can be small enough to stuff even into a N scale locomotive in many cases. The only time I'd see merit to it is in the case of you not having enough room in your locos for ANYTHING else.
