Thanks Mark. I like big pictures - the say a thousand words thing you know :wink: Speaking of which...

Is that an 1/8" jack on the WM 08? I sure hope not, if it is, I need to buy an angled adapter.

Yep, it is, Dan.  I am almost positive that it's 1/8" for the Equinox...

SO -- yes, I need an angled adapter as well, but don't know what we need...male 1/8 stereo to female 1/4 stereo, 90 degree, I assume?  Can you shed any light, Steve?

I would assume, an 1/8" male stereo to 1/4" female for the 1/4" male jack on the headphones. I may have one in my stash.

Yes, Dan, that's what I meant to say, 1/8 MALE to 1/4 FEMALE.  DUH!  My bad!  (I edited my post, to fix it).  What I was really asking was is stereo to stereo correct?  

On the CTX, if hooking to the control box itself, I believe the male needs to be mono, and the female stereo, is why I was asking...

You know, now that you mention it, I'm wondering if one plugs into the Nox directly(who would) (me) if it's wired the same as the CTX jack(mono)  I'm running an 1/8" angled male patch cable with a 1/4" female end mounted on the back end on the Nox. I use a Periscope Probe and need to plug directly into the machine. I've tried plugging the Periscope to the WM 10 but, for some reason when the audio goes from the WM10 thru the Periscope then to my phones, the audio get distorted just enough to throw the sound off. I'm hoping that's not the case with  WM08, if it is, I have my plan in the works!!!

The WM08 has the same 1/8” waterproof jack fitting as does the Equinox itself. The same 1/8” to 1/4” adapter that comes with  the detector fits both the detector and the WM08.

Steve,

I was under the impression that this was an accessory part and did notcome with the machine, if that's the case, and it does, problem solved!!

Hmmm... I thought that adapter came with the Equinox 800 but now I am not seeing it on the included items list. It may be an accessory purchased separately. I will inquire because that is a very important item for some people. Me, I have gone aptX wireless and do not expect to use the WM08 or any of my wired phones in the future with Equinox. Wireless headphones are a spoiler, and the ones that come with the Equinox 800 are actually decent. That’s what I am using.

Note that the Minelab 1/8” to 1/4” adapter has the waterproof 1/8” end on it. A person can use a cheap aftermarket 1/8” to 1/4” adapter instead but the connection would not be waterproof. People who are wading might want the Minelab adapter since it would allow the detector pod to get wet but still work with regular dry land headphones as long as the 1/4” connection is kept dry.

      I will be talking about as I use and test.
      I will be comparing to Etrac wearing  6”coil, Deus wearing elliptical Hf coil and Nokta Impact wearing  4x7” elliptical coil.
      Will compare to stock Equinox 11” coil too.

      Though I’ve owned the Equinox 800 for a less than 3 weeks, it took less than a couple hours of use to realize I had made the right choice to wait on the higher end model though in all probability I would have made the same finds with a 600.  After deciding to purchase an Equinox a couple of months ago, I angst over which model to purchase. There were good reasons for purchasing both models and 600 was readily available, but as much as I tried, I couldn’t pull the trigger on a 600.  As it turned out, the reasons why I thought I wanted the ‘800’ over the ‘600’ turned out not to be the primary reasons why I’m glad I waited. Here are a few of the reasons. 1) Audio versatility. The 800 comes with the ML 80 headphones and the WM 08 wireless module though either of these can be purchased separately to use with a 600 but at a higher combined cost than just purchasing an 800. Should either the WM 08 or ML 80 go dead for whatever reason, you‘ll still have a wireless option to use. Also, the WM 08 module along with an adapter allows you the option of using your favorite set of headphones with audio that’s even faster than aptX. 3) Four ‘Back Light’ options, not just ‘on’ and ‘off’. 4) More ‘Recovery Speed’ settings though I’m sure some would argue that the three settings on the 600 are adequate. Now that I’ve had the opportunity to use these features, it reinforces my choice to have waited on the 800. I’m looking forward to gaining more experience with the Equinox as I learn to use the advanced settings and other features that only come with the ‘800’. Some finds from my first few hunts.

      I have just ordered a box 800. I have been going through treads for awhile now. I was thinking it might help to have a single source thread with links to the must read threads. Such as Mr H's review some by our new Zealand guys. I was hoping Mr.H could kick this off with the top 5. Any thoughts?
