I've not gone away,,,,, Tarsacci arrived safely here on Tuesday, I've been testing, only in my garden for a few hours.

Build quality is outstanding, carbon fibre shafts, amazing cam locks, no wobble, good Balance, really pleased.

I've had to purchase a UK charger, as USA is 110 v & we run 240v, no problem, next day delivery from online shop, cost £10.95,,,,,  both batteries now fully charged.

I've been playing with the Salinity Balance a lot, looks very interesting,, I'll keep you updated on this. I may try and do a simple video showing this soon, ( never uploaded a video before)....Lol.

I've also converted the Tarsacci to "wireless" ,,,, received today,, wireless transmitter, and wireless headphones, Bluetooth aptX Low Latency, made by "TROND" model BT-DUO, and the TROND matching headphones,,,,, amazing sound, no noticeable signal delay whatsoever, really great, and to expensive,,, about £87 delivered.

I obviously need to get more hours on the Tarsacci before I start to post further comments, so I will be back soon with new updates asap.

Dave remember Salinity Balance only kicks in when your ground balance reports 600 or higher. You can go to manual ground balance and add. Go to 605. Cheers M8.

Here's my 1st video showing how the Tarsacci "sees through foil" to detect a small silver Hammered half penny coin.

      How many of MDT users like the tones of disc mode?   I don’t like it. It sounds like a toy.   Mixed mode is what I use.

      Tarsacci MDT 8000 control panel and LCD display
    • By Steve Herschbach
      The MDT 8000 has an IP68 rating - up to 1.5 meters for up to 30 minutes. I’d call that more a wading detector than a mask & snorkel detector. On the other hand, I’d bet the MDT is at least as waterproof as an Equinox, if not more so.  I don’t think any of these so-called 10 foot detectors have a genuine waterproof rating exceeding IP68, simply based on the coil and headphone connectors being employed
      The question being, how deep for how long? Who, if anyone, has had the MDT submerged for more than a few hours? I’d assume that simply wading using the supplied headphones, with controls submerged nor more than a foot or two, would be good almost indefinitely? Though technically that’s not what the rating says. Up to 1.5 meters for up to 30 minutes.
      Anyone doing fully submersible? I just missed on a used set of Tony Eisenhower phones for the MDT, so I know that they at least are being made for the MDT. Is anyone else making underwater phones for the unit? I’ve got a set of Minelab yellow Koss I’ve considered converting, but need to prove I’d actually be sticking my head in the water more than I’m doing now before I’d go that route.
      The machine appears tight enough. The only thing I’d wish for off hand is that Dimitar double the number of threads on the battery cap. They seem sufficient, but just barely, and a few more turns would add some psychological safety at least.
