I now use the Avantree Rx APTX BT unit just like a WM12 dongle,

Hi JP - could you please advise which Avantree you are using?  There are a few to choose from?

Note: DO NOT USE the Tx module anywhere near the control box of the 6000, insanity will result through the cursed EMI!!

Did wonder that!  Thanks for the clarification  👍

Posted in Torus thread re. Aventree Torus suitability. Now after a few weeks use I can say with certainty is the way to go, only con is they are not waterproof, as Chase pointed out, which is not a major issue in my detecting season but dust is thus time will tell if they last, they do not need velcro or anything to hold in place they sit there very comfy like and you only hear from them not feel them, which is a bit like the fairer...... I never said that........... 🤪

Thanks Norvic   👍   

I am being particularly fussy unfortunately.   At $130 they are a reasonable solution although the dust/rain thing is a concern.  The little Bluetooth receivers should be able to be kept in a plastic bag in the top pocket if need. And having a few spares at $40 each is easy enough too.  

Cheers, N.E.

Edit: this model looked good when I first posted it but it may not be low latency or aptX compatible so it may not be useful for detecting- sorry.

This model is waterproof-just a speaker without ear buds, will try it out and post a review:

BUGANI waterproof wearable bluetooth speaker: Edit: pulled reference , it wasn't low latency- always check! Sorry if I wasted anyone’s time.

Not sure if you have purchased yet GotAU - I can't see on the Amazon that it is Low Latency although I might have missed it?

Ugh, I am pulling the reference- found a review that said it doesnt sync well with video so it may not be aptX compatible and probably not low latency.  Sorry!

No need to be sorry.  We are all learning here and a reminder to check the specs of items is just as good as a review.  Could save people some coin  😉👍

      Firstly my thanks to the guys at Coiltek.
      After dreadful weather here in central Victoria, and recovering from surgery, this morning dawned clear and sunny. Nice hot coffee and before the dew was off the ground I had the 6000 cranked up. Rudimentary reading of the manual the previous day saw the new detector humming sweetly after a short warm up. JP had been most helpful with a few tips on the local Finders forum, so it was quite easy to feel a certain amount of confidence as I ground balanced and paired up the headphones, which are surprisingly good compared to some of Minelab's previous offerings.
      There is a shallow but substantial lead running west to east across my fifty acre property which yielded a small amount of gold to my GPZ a few years back. I had gridded out the most promising area at the time, so it seemed obvious that this would be a good place to test my new toy. Not bothering to take a pick I headed off towards the east end of the block.
      Where on earth did these signals come from? A number were I am sure just shotgun pellets, but a few were at a reasonable depth as I tilted the coil to get some idea of just how deep. The more interesting signals I marked with boot scuffs and will check out within the next few days. I did not get to go back for my pick as a visitor turned up to have me check his detector.
      Initial impressions; Pretty damned good.

      Six Thousand dollars to put out on anything is a large investment to make .
       I just wonder how many of you have committed yourself to buying the 6000 already?
       I’ve had a long talk with one Minelab dealer and he has been told that the 6000 may slow in coming to the US because of the high volume going to other countries. That’s due to the gold rush is there not here.
       For you that live in gold country it may be a easy discussion but for those of us  that don’t we may have to think about it a while.
       I myself don’t have a bass boat parked in my drive with a big motor and trailer so this year I’m going to be good to me .
       I will have a 6000 as soon as I can get  my hot little hands on one.
       How about you is Santa going to come early?
       The Best!

      8 grammer found at 11 inches.  Nothing special as most detectors PIs should see something that big at that depth, but at least we get to see a big one finally found on film.

      I don't know how many 6000s are already 'in the system' as complete units in the box ready for use but the Covid count in Malaysia is forcing them to shut down some things.

      Be prepared for a long wait with the chip shortage.

      I’m wondering if the double D coil on the 6000 discriminates on metal like the 5000 does?
