Oh Monte I do find it funny that you have always been a Nokta/Makro man, now they release their best machine to date and you want a Eq 800 lol. Scratching my head Monte confused smileyconfused smiley

Joel, you are partly correct. From the first few minutes to an hour or so, the Nokta FORS CoRe had me won over due to durable built quality, simplicity, and exceptional performance in nasty iron debris. The Nokta Relic did the same but even more-so. I liked the Makro Racer and Racer 2 and Gold Racer were almost as good. The Nokta Impact was also very impressive.

As for the following N/M products I liked the Simplex+ more than the Kruzer or Anfibio, and where I start to loose interest in many newer products is when they are not "fixed" in the first place and end up needing too many updates.

As for audio quality, we all hear differently and we all have our likes and dislikes. With the others who tried my NBPT and also Mike and Lisa, I much preferred the results and the audio of the Equinox 800. Possible the Legend could be adjusted and be more likeable, but out of the box type settings it wasn't close to the Equinox models I heard, or the Relic or the CoRe or my Tesoro's.

UtahRich had a comment I find to be correct.
