    I agree... the AT pro is a good machine UNLESS your going to do beach hunting. The Nox is a great machine BUT I find it to be not a user friendly and takes more time and effort to really “mesh” with the machine.

    I often wish I still had my AT Pro. I’ve found stuff just as deep with it as with the NOX.

    The deciding factors for me would be based on answers to these questions.

    Do I plan on hunting on wet beach?
    Do I plan on hunting in highly mineralized (red/orange) soil? ( example:Virginia)
    If you answer yes to either get the NOX.

    I think the AT pro would be a good upgrade for you otherwise.

    Love my Equinox 800 for saltwater beach hunting and hunting mostly yards during the Summer. Talked a sister into getting a AT Pro last yr for her neck of the woods (Ohio). Both are great machines, however, after working with the 800 for 9 months I'd go with the new technology and get the 600; it can pick good targets out of trash (if you go slow enough), above, below and all around.

The Equinox 600 for me outperforms the AT Pro in all aspects. Just get your self a pair of low latency wireless headphones (I got them off amazon for like 35.00 and they automatically connect wirelessly to the EQ600, no adapters needed).
    Hey GoDeep! Specifically which headphones did you get off Amazon that worked? And Thanks!
    BTW- Can anyone tell me how to change my Username ON THE SITE? I fat-fingered it and it should say capncrunch, NOT caoncrunch, lol!
    I'm excited by the mystery of the history!
