  1. Thanks for the info Steve , never miss reading articles by Chris . Now I've got plenty of viewing . Going to a PMAV meeting tonight in the Golden Triangle and will inform the group in general business . Cheers goldrat
  2. May have missed pricing on the new x coils , interested to find out cost and web site to purchase . Cheers goldrat
  3. Appreciate your important story Steve , I started in hospitality ( clubs and country hotels ) in1958 and finished in 2013 . In that span of years I saw many of both genders ruin their health , wealth , future and last but most importantly their family units . Over the years it broke my heart to see all of the above happen before my eyes . As I aged I tried extremely hard to help many people and their families , but I learnt that they have to own up to their problem , admit it and voluntary seek help . Thanks for your story , you have bought back many work related memories . I have always admired your knowledge and extreme strength to drive this forum in the best direction , well I've just added a further admiration of you , thanks for your story . Cheers goldrat

  13. Just received an email from Avantree with a link to Amazon for the clari-airbuds . https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07P961194 Cheers goldrat
  14. Sinclair , I have followed post's everywhere concerning wireless and wired ear buds for 18 months or more . A guess with the lack of Low latency opportunities I have always purchased wired earbuds . I think I have 6 to 8 pairs gathering dust in the shed . Every pair same result , bend down to use the pick and one or both would fall out or I'd ground detector too far out and pull a bud out . Anyway noticed you mention Avantree are bringing out a new model . Well I did a pre order on these 4 months ago which entitles you to a 60% discount plus free freight . The model that you mention in the link is hook over ear clari-air low latency . I received my parcel 2 weeks ago and have been out several times testing them . Five different areas with heavy mineralisation and 2 benign areas ( please note , both benign areas were away from the regular goldfields ) Let's start with comfort , best ever for my ears and as for falling out not once did this occur . You could do somersaults and they would stick . Saved the best part for last , over all grounds there is no lag at all , coil over target and you have the signal immediately . Performance identical to the factory headphones supplied with the Equinox 800 . Not to concern us on this forum is the music quality which I found excellent ( not a sound quality buff ) I believe this shows up with the target signal clarity . As for play time , the longest time out was 5.5 hours and still going , although brochure says play time is 5 hours . This pair will not be gathering shed dust only bush dust . Hope this report helps prospectors wishing to use ear buds in the summer . Can't find them on Amazon yet , but direct with Avantree cost is $39.99 . Cheers goldrat My apologies I forgot to mention that pairing was simple and quick and yes the + is on the Equinox screen .
  15. Well done phoenix size doesn't matter a great looking nugget . Cheers goldrat
