Nokta Anfibio Prototype Review

Recommended Posts

There is a nice write up with lots of photos just posted by one of the Nokta Anfibio prototype testers. There is mention made of the Nokta Anfibio Multi Cache Mode, called Treasure Mode in the review. There are other tidbits also. Check it out at http://hobby-detecting.com/nokta-anfibio-our-review-of-the-new-detector-tips-thoughts-experience-finds/

I'm surprised it has coil knock sensitivity with such low frequencies but I guess that could be the recovery speed?  Treasure mode seems to be best at 5khz which goes deep being such a low frequency with a very low recovery speed so the mode I guess could be manually set on another detector.   I like the look of it, solid looking build quality which can be a bit lacking in the other brands and a nice honest sounding review.  I look forward to seeing what Nokta come out with next, they're getting better every time.  I have my fingers crossed they get into PI gold detectors to shake up the pricing in the marketplace, I think they would do well...  I can't wait to hear stories of people's success with it, which I am sure there will be many.

Seems like the "Treasure" mode is akin to the Cache (CL) mode on the F75.  Very, very few people found this to be a useful feature, now Boost mode was a different story.   On previous Makro/Nokta models their DEEP mode was locked at 2-tones, whereas on the F75 you could use Boost mode with any tone configuration.  Has this changed on the Anfibio?

Looks like a nice machine, but from what I can tell thus far, not enough to persuade me to "upgrade" from my Multi Kruzer.  Nice that they share the same coils, as they'll be a nice selection of coils right out of the gate on the Anfibio.

In simple terms, two things control noise or "chattyness". Gain, and recovery speed. 

The higher the Gain and the faster the recovery speed, the more "sparky" a unit will be. There is obviously a lot more under the hood that that, but with the different modes there will be different levels of Gain, Recover Speed, Audio (beep or VCO), how many tone splits there are, and also what Target ID scale is applied to the mode.

As an example, the Impact uses the 0-40 ferrous scale in the following modes: Gen, Gen D, STA, STA D, Deep, VLX1, VLX2. Whereas the 0-15 ferrous scale is used in 2-tone, DI3, DI4, DI99 and COG  modes. 

Then the other things that makes up a mode is AC or DC, i.e. motion or non-motion. The non-motion Cache mode in 5kHz should be crazy deep on large items. One item that comes to mind here that is a very desirable relic find is a Cricket Belt Buckle.  

Watch from the ten minute mark.

      What is White's DFX Spectrum worth these days? Is it worth the effort to learn? Does it have a place with today's detectors?

      The Coin Finder CF77 looks like a nice simple machine, has anyone here used one? Does it compare the Fors Relic?

      What is this Deeptech VISTA X ???
    • By squirmingcoil77
      Hello all.  I was wondering if it's possible to customize the tones on the VX3.  I know you can assign tones to all the vdi #s on the V3i and even change the tone pitch on the XLT and DFX, but I did not see where you can alter the tones on the VX3.  Maybe i missed it in the manual.  Does anyone know?  thanks.

      “Hello all, hope you’ve all had a great weekend. We’ve just put a short video covering some of the aspects on the DeepTech Vista X together, some of the features that you’ll see in the video has been altered but we will be making a new video on these changes very soon. We’ve had so much interest in the Vista X, we put a video together as fast as possible to show some of these new features. Thank you for your patience, more information and update video on performance coming shortly. Recommended retail price: 580 Euro”
