I had a Gold Maxx to evaluate.

February 23, 2023 08:37AM avatar
For a few years I had seen XP sell their analog GMAX II but never heard of anyone selling or using them in the USA.
4.6khz and ergonomics of the machine are good selling points.

Anyone here know or have used one?

The Gold Maxx and the Gold Maxx Power (sometimes referred to as the Gold Max II) operated at 18 kHz.

I liked the field performance of the Gold Maxx, but the fit-and-finish, especially the rod, were not up to XL's current level.

I liked the Gold Maxx but had to send it back to who supplied it to me as they are not sellable in the USA because they don't meet the FCC code requirement.
