Notice the lingo has changed.

Using unequal performance seems like vs  obsoletes.

What they should have done to begin with, Imo.

But me a lonely peasant with no engineering degree. Lol

I actually thought their line about "obsoletes all other single frequency" detectors was a good one.  Actually a fair chance that it is 100% true.

"Unequalled performance in all conditions".  Somebody needs to have a word with marketing about this one.  I'm sure they're referring to 'in comparison with other multi frequency machines' but this is just too general.  Leaves themselves wide open for more bad sentiment.

Better than a GPZ on a 1 ounce nugget at 30 inches?   Better than an SDC on a 0.05 gm nugget in WA mineral hell (maybe it is - wouldn't that be cool :ohmy:)?  I know I am not comparing apples with apples but that's the problem with the statement - it is not directly comparing anything either. 

Obsoletes all other single frequency detectors - at least we knew where the comparison was. 

Really, I don't care if they say that it is the best or the worst, I'm happy with what the testers have to say.  But the internet is going to have a field day :sad:

Took me a second to figure out what those round-ish things were.  They look like fancy-shmancy pillar candles.  Maybe it is supposed to be detector porn. :laugh:

“Without Equal” is not necessarily a good thing if you are on the wrong side of the “less than” sign.  Gotta love the marketing department, precision is not their strong suit.

Chase buddy,

I would truly like to meet you.  I would enjoy debating you too.  Would prove interesting.  So is the glass half empty or half full??

Please don't answer question.

I will answer this - would like to road trip it to your neck of the woods some time and hit some TN sites with you so we could do some real detector test nerd damage together and find some cool relics in the process.  And then I could show you some nasty hot trash ridden VA spots that just have to be hiding some buttons and plates that I think the EQ might just sniff out.  Excited to get this sucker and compare notes.

      Which end of the Nox is the waterproof end? Is it the coil cable end OR the coil receptacle on the back of the controller? Or, are both waterproof? When I rinse my Nox off after a beach hunt I cover both connectors with my thumb so as not to get the pins or the pin receptacles wet. Does anybody know what the thread count is on the connectors? I would like to get a male and a female solid end so as to rinse the Nox off without any possible water problems.
      Thanks for any info on this matter.

      Hey just got an Equinox 800 last week, my first detector.  First of all thanks for all the info, it has really helped me figure out this thing!  So far I've only detected around the house and found a wide range of trash: Nails, stakes, nuts, bolts, old chunks of iron, shell casing, a piece of buckshot, molten aluminum nugget from a bonfire, stainless steel wire, tarp grommet, bottle cap, tin can lid.  Nothing amazing but happy with the results, right now I'm digging everything with a consistent signal to learn, figuring out the Target ID and learning the sounds.  Probably a little tough area to start at, but as soon as I figured out the sensitivity and ground balance, the signals are much clearer, I've been impressed how deep it has found some things.  Also suprised I haven't dug any hot rocks yet, there are a lot of rocks in our driveway that are magnetic and I expected to be having to dig a lot more, but so far haven't dug one.
      Thanks again for all the advice on here, excited to go look for some nuggets and lost stuff.  Really happy with the machine, love the wireless headphones!  Seems hard to beat for an "all-around" type machine.

      Went to a local So. Cal. park this morning, and boy what a workout! I'm not sure the Nox is the right machine for a modern trashy park. In some area's of the park the Nox was sounding off like a machine gun. I tried P1, P2, F1, F2, 5 tone, 50 tone, 0 GB, manual GB, auto GB, recovery at 5, 6, 7 and IB at 3, 4, 5. It seems no matter what I tried, I couldn't get the machine to quiet down. It might just be too much trash. I couldn't keep up with the Noxs' noise. I got tired of trying to distinguish good target sounds from bad target sounds, so after two hours my head couldn't take it anymore so I just gave up and headed home. 
      Anybody got any ideas on the best way to handle this type of park? Or, is it best to just pass it by?
      Thanks in advance for any help in this area.

      Here is a easy way to fix your shaft wobble, even if only temporarily. The male end of the middle shaft just needs a single layer of electrical tape.
      The tolerances on the Minelab shaft are actually pretty tight. If it was any closer you might not be able to get it apart again. Anybody who has swung a Tesoro Knows those twist-locks only work for first assembly, lol
      I've done this before with other machines except I used aluminum tape, time will tell how long the electrical tape will hold out. The tape in the picture has about 15 hours on it, so far it's OK. Besides, it's easy to replace.
      Coincidentally when I took the machine apart for a cleaning and to take this picture, I noticed that Minelab made a similar raised surface on the lower fiberglass rod. The lower rod is so long that a little play really wouldn't translate into as much slop as the upper connection does.

      Now that the six-inch coils have hit the streets has anyone heard of an ETA for the Minelab Equinox 15" Double-D Smart Coils? This is what I'm really looking forward to!
      Thanks!

      Hi all.
      I know I've seen this info before, but I can't seem to find it...
      I currently have an Equinox 800, and am going to buy a 600 as a backup.  I know the 600 has only 4 settings for Iron Bias (instead of 9), and 3 settings for Recovery Speed (instead of 8).  Can anyone remind me what the "equivalents" are between the 600 settings and the 800?

      I THINK I recall that Recovery Speed 1 on the 600 equals 2 on the 800, Speed 2 on the 600 equals 4 on the 800, and speed 3 on the 600 equals 6 on the 800.  Is this correct? 
      Meanwhile, I can't remember how the Iron Bias Settings relate.  I assume 0 on the 600 equals 0 on the 800, and 3 on the 600 equals 9 on the 800?  Would 1 on the 600 equal 3 on the 800, and 2 on the 600 equal 6 on the 800?
      In other words, is this "chart," below, correct?


      Reason I ask is, I know the settings that I prefer on the 800, and I'd like to set the 600 up as close as possible to what I run on the 800.
      Thanks,
      Steve
