i hope to get out this weekend with it hooked to my sdc so well see how it does by itself and with the treasure screamer plugged in.

Rob, the Pro Sonic already has 3 watts of amplification built into it; adding the screamer on top of it would be overkill. But it would be interesting to hear what it sounds like...if the external speaker survives😀

I was able to take this out a week ago and got a few hours in on it with my sdc2300.  although I didn't find any gold it was really nice not getting tangled up on the bushes.  as far as the volume goes it is plenty loud with the head phones but when I would unplug them to let my friend here the target, the speaker was way to low.  I plugged in my amp and external speaker and it was much better.  I couldn't notice any delay at all with the unit although I would get some kind of interference every once in a while as if the unit was loosing connection.  I tried wiggling the wires and other things but could not figure out what was doing it.  I plugged it in my friends x-terra 705 for a few minutes and didn't seem to have any interference.  I hope to get out with it some more soon to see if it was the area I was in or its my detector not playing nice with it.

      I was looking over on Chris Gholson forum and he's got the new Garrett Z-Lynk for 127.46 with free shipping. He is also putting your name in the pot if would like the new Minelab Pro Sonic for 269.00 plus free shipping.
      I'm just wondering if the one that has a higher price that much better than the other ? I know Minelab puts out a great product and as far as I know always has. But is the added 141.54 better than the American made one.
      I can't go out and buy both to find the answer to my question so I hope over time you can.

      I seen they are available now on the Garrett website . I ordered one from Metaldetectors.com . Im looking forward to trying this one out and cuttin the cord.

      I have often wondered if the detector itself is more sensitive than the speakers that it has and even though the signal is there we don`t hear it.
      Perhaps a speaker with some kind of a meter that would indicate we are passing over a target even though the speaker is silent
      I`m sure there are meters that could  indicate the presence of such signals, perhaps big gold at more depth?

          I couldn’t find a wireless delay specification for the GPZ 7000 WM 12.  So I tested it.  The attached oscilloscope display is the audio waveform envelopes from a US nickel passing over the GPZ-19 coil at approximately 40 inches per/sec.
          The upper yellow waveform is from the earphone jack on the back of the GPZ 7000.  The lower green waveform is from the earphone jack of the wireless WM 12 receiver.
           The waveforms are sweeping in time from the left side to the right side.  The entire display is divided into 10 horizontal increments of 50 milliseconds (0.050 sec.) each.  The audio (wah-wee sound) created by the nickel is spread across 9 divisions (450 milliseconds) with the nickel crossing the center of the coil at approximately 4.5 divisions (225 milliseconds).  Close measurement of the green trace displacement to the right indicates that the wireless WM 12 receiver audio is delayed by 20 milliseconds.
           The nickel speed of 40 inches per second is equal to 1 second divided by 40 = 0.025 sec. = 25 milliseconds to move 1 inch.  So a delay of 20 milliseconds is less than a 1 inch position error which would be imperceptible during normal searching.  When slowed down to pinpointing speed it would be a minuscule error.
           A 50 ms delay would result in an approximate 2 inch position error which at sweep speed is probably not that noticeable to most of us. Again at pinpointing speed it should not be a problem.   
            For information; the scattered positive and negative spikes are noise spikes from the GPZ 7000 transmitter pulses. The wide bandwidth / fidelity of the oscilloscope allow it to capture these spikes. The spikes are too high in frequency for the human ear to hear.  Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) that we randomly hear resembles the waveform envelopes shown in this display.
       
      This is somewhat technical so I hope I have made it understandable to some.
      Have a good day,
      Chet
