Very correct about some of the Minelab behavior.

It seems like most makes and models have their own 'Signature-of-Sound' and we just have to pick-and-choose those that play the tunes we like to hear. The FBS models had theirs, but for me and my hearing I actually favored the audio I got from my Sovereign XS 2a Pro over the few Explorer II's and SE Pro I had. I found the Equinox and Vanquish 540 to also have their own telling audio report, and that is one of the things that I do like about the V-540 that has kept me hanging onto it.

I can't get out and hunt like I used to, and, as you do, I pamper my equipment and keep it tidy on a regular basis, and with a good assortment of makes and models on-hand it spreads the use-time out, too. I really like the Vanquish 540 Pro Pack for a lot of applications, but I can't handle the big-park / deep-target hunting like I used to and would have traded the V-540 package and a little $$ for a newish Garrett Apex for one of my sons ... if I knew of anyone looking to do so.eye rolling smiley

They do produce an impressive response when coins get into that 6 Inch-and-deeper range, and I think you'r right that a lot of users just don't hear it and learn it.
