    Stasys, what kind of setup would you recommend? I have tried T-Bone transmitter with one of the Philips TV wireless headphones and as I was really "not impressed" I have returned to corded KOSS headphones... This is mainly about the transmitter (I have a lot of wireless headphones to choose from) so your guidance would be appreciated

    I have a lot of wireless headphones to choose from- But I dont use any because my etrac is in bag, but from reading and talking with people they use Auvio and the rest different, check in other forums, this really very simple its just one transmitter and headphones , but dont expect sound like Koss 30 except you will solder Koss dynamics on wireless. I can see you have found nice coin -1360 hammered silver "Prague"how many? in Lithuania we used this coin till 15century.

    What if the CTX3030 combines VLF with PI technology?

    In my opinion, we might be missing the point all together...

    Never mind the colour screen, wireless audio, GPS or the mapping,
    these are all features which easily fit in that slime control box...

    Like everyone noted what stands out is the large battery case and
    large battery = large power supply = large power consumption = PI

    What if the CTX3030 combines VLF with PI technology?

    quote from Bruce Candys US Patent 8063777 of November 22, 2011
    ----------------------------------------- -------------------------
    [...]where the operator is able to [...] select different waveforms
    [...] examples [...] being time-domain, square-wave, sine wave [...]

    if I'm not mistaken, then...

    time-domain .....means PI technology
    square-wave ....means multi-frequency technology
    sine wave ........means VLF technology

    I don't know if above mentioned patent is the one for the CTX3030, but
    it would explain the large battery, and as waterproofing would allow salt
    water detecting a machine which can be switched to PI if needed would
    be better suited...

    Back on land you could switch it back to Multi-frequency for
    relic hunting, or single VLF, and/or, PI for Gold Prospecting...

    Just a thought

    I will address this in the other forum, you're right. If I can really solve this issue I do not see any other reason to go for CTX3030 - all the other features are not really important (= I don't hunt in really wet conditions, I don't need GPS, color display, etc.). That hammered penny is my first one.

    I think not PI its just FBS with Etrac guts, no place in this box for Pi what they use in GPX. its just Water proofed Etrac with color screen and not good balanced.

    Also they say WATERPROOF (I am guessing to 10 ft)., but the headphones do not look waterproof at all. Optional waterproof headphones?

    Big statement for something you've never seen more than a picture of.

    As for the "time domain", the FBS technology in the E-Trac and Explorers use that, so that doesn't mean it's going to be a PI.

    Where did you read underwater?
    I read water proof which means splash proof.

    Waterproof is a specific term which seems misplaced or at the least ill-advised. Water resistant is the true term they should be using. Even scuba diving equipment will say water restitant to xxx feet.

    After the 30 second demo of Minelabs new detector they tell you that the detector is waterproof to 10 feet just like Garretts AT Pro.

    yes unfortunately those who set prices have full Wallets & several Bank accounts.

    They don't realize not everyone can just say "New toy", "I Need it"
