I agree Dave and betting the discrimination will also be upgraded and it will be a big deal to that section of our coin/relic hunters..... Minelab has really been putting out some exciting technology for us nugget shooters and coin /relic folks over the years and I am guessing this one will be another big jump. Hopefully the price will be as amazing as it was for the technology of the GM 1000, everyone thought for sure it would be in the price range of the Eureka, but  surprised us all with a 800.00 killer gold hunting VLF.

It’s also suitable for the new detectorist, having several pre-set modes for different detecting locations.  The EQUINOX Series features Minelab’s STATE-OF-THE ART Multi-IQ simultaneous multi-frequency technology and combines fast recovery speed with low-latency wireless audio in a lightweight waterproof platform.

3 Detect Modes (Park, Field, Beach)
4 Frequency Options (5kHz, 10kHz, 15kHz, Multi)

“EQUINOX, with Multi-IQ, has the potential to obsolete all the traditional VLF detectors that enthusiasts have been using for decades.” –Minelab Electronics Pty Ltd.

Expected retail prices are:

EQUINOX 600    USD 649
EQUINOX 800    USD 899

Other regions will have relative pricing, taking into account variables such as foreign currency exchange rates and government sales taxes.
